    Yes, I tried one out a few years ago at Sam Ash.
    Same pickups as the Thunderbird but some people prefer the ergonomics...and the price.
    I thought maybe they came out with a deluxe model.

    It's on their website with a new Exorcist Green color. I have one from the last go around and I love it. I've gigged it and jammed it and it is light and balanced, it plays well and feels Good and sounds great. I had some minor quality control issues fixed on East att by my local guitar store, but There was a total fogged up run of them with afflicted bridges that led to their demise. If they keep quality control intact, they're great basses

    Yes, Wanderlust Green. Perfect for the lederhosen crowd traveling through the Alps.

    Picked up the smoked almond one. Very light, very beefy tone! The gold sparkle is amazing.

    My Smoked Almond Embassy arrived last night. Will make a proper NBD post but initial thoughts are: super comfy neck, kinda strange since it's fixed and the (very cool) uniform color flows across the whole instrument. Tone is absolutely incredible- a whole new tonal category to the P-J-Stingray array, one can add this as a separate and wonderful option. Beefy, growly, punchy... it's just awesome. Today I'll do a setup, needs a little mod, but the dual action truss and simple and solid bridge will make that a breeze. Neck wood is gorgeous but some F1 will really bring out the grain. Not sure what the stock strings are but might keep them on as they sound and feel fine (prob will change out for some DR Black Beauties I have sitting unused). The dichotomy between its lightweight and dexterous body and the massive sound is instant fun. I could see this becoming my goto axe for quite some time. Price, of course was wonderful, proving once again great stage/studio ready instruments are widely available in the >$400 category. If you are on the fence on one of these do it do it as unless you have a Thunderbird you don't have anything in your quiver with this sound. The ProBucker 760's deliver the goods and are not at all like a P or a J or an H/HH Stingray. Weeeee!
