TB- Here in Los Angeles, I have a Vester bass. Don't know much about this company, but I put in some Aguilar pickups and changed out the pots to 250s. Put on some brand new Elixir Stainless Steels and she's singing pretty!! The spacing feels like 19mm and the weight is maybe 8.5 lbs. she's all passive and has vol/vol/tone, 24 frets and the playability is fantastic. I'd keep her, but I'm a 5 guy at heart. 175 + shipping in a generic gig bag.
