    :eek: As soon as I read the title I knew it had to be this one. Unbeilievable. That bass has been on my gas list for some time now. It's really tempting me to think about parting ways with my Lakand DPLE JO4, but, but, but....AGHH!

    Did you replace the pickups with Sadowskys? I read on Ninos site it originally had DiMarzio Ultra Jazz pickups. Do you know if the body is a vintage full sized Jazz body or a regular downsized body 7/8? Is the gig bag that comes with it a Nino case or something different? I thought Nino had a case like Sadowskys. Its a purdy bass!!! im very interested.

    actually , Nino sent me the bass with the Sadowsky pickups
    and Sadowsky preamp already installed ...
    but i believe he did have the DiMarzio's in it at first .

    body seems to be a full size , single piece ash beauty .

    the soft case is very nice , more than just a gig bag really .
    it has a front pocket large enough to hold straps , cables ,
    and just about anything else needed for a gig night ... except
    your amp , course .:D

    headstock picture and a shot of the bass in action ...
    sorry for the crappy pictures .
