Incredibly quick shipping on this one. Won it on sunday and I've got it on wednesday. Now that's service This bass sounds amazing. Pickups are a little hot if i'm not touching anything on the bass but with a finger on any string the bass is dead quiet. Has that great growly sound from the bubinga. I'm still pretty sure the neck is ovangkol. It definitely doesn't have the wenge grain or color. The sound needed a little tweaking. It almost sounded like I had a distortion pedal on at first. I think it was due to the preamp on the bass. I turned down the bass knob on the bass and turned up the Sansamp and everything sounded pretty good. Feels good to have a nice 4 string to compliment the Thumb 5 i've got now Does it make me a bad person that I have a Warwick and a Spector? All I'm waitin' on now is the new set of DR's to come in.
