For the guy earlier talking about a Thumb bolt, I've got to say that if you can resist the American urge of instant gratification, I recommend saving another $1,000 and buying the neck-through model of the Thumb. Or find a used one. At least play the neck-through. It's like the difference between a Toyota Camry and a Lexus 400 or between the $100 prostitute and the $1,000 one (OK bad analogy since I've never had the pleasure). My neck-through bass sounds a lot better than my bolt-ons and the stability is something of another phenomenon.
