  3. I like it OK.
    Not crazy about it.
    I'd guess it's not for everybody and with a limited edition
    they only need to attract 81 buyers to sell out.
    I think they will meet that demand.

    It never crossed my mind that I hadn't seen one with BnB before now. Honestly, that's pretty big news in the bass world.

    Classy looking but not for me - all black would've gotten my attention much more (especially with the b&b, black on black on black would've been cool).

    This. I usually love BnB basses, but for some reason this just isn’t doing anything for me. Weird.

    Ya, but I would rather see this with a maple fretboard.

    How come they don’t put the BFR badge on the fretboard anymore? Where do they indicate it is BFR now, if at all?

    And I like it too, btw. Even more if it had another string.

  17. Not gonna lie, I think it's really cool. I won't own one cause I don't need an SR4, but I dig the look.

    Myself as well. I've never been a fan of blocks on a dark neck. On a maple neck, it would have looked more traditional, which I think would have been a better fit for such a classic instrument.

    Im not a fan of black hardware. But if a bass like this is going to look fancy with the hardware and blocks & binding, then at least put a matching headstock on it.
