They finally have 2 listed. Not really the color I want. I want the blue one.

Hmm. That particular specimen doesn't do anything for me. The back looks terrible with how poorly the grain matches and I don't care for the rosewood looking pickup covers with the ash neck.
Check out this one. The grain matches better on the back and it’s 0.35 lbs lighter.

I tried starting a thread a while back, and it didn’t garner much interest, but I think it could be a real winner.
I plan to get one. It’s finished in Ca. I’m pretty sure they fell good to play.
Well, I pulled the trigger on one. I’ll post a review when I get it.
As soon as I pulled the trigger, they get in the color I really wanted.

Man, I got the bass and it is worth every penny. This thing smacks and it’s setup out the box. I’ll paid double this and didn’t get this nice of a setup. The way they pack it up just to ship is awesome.
A more detailed description is coming soon.
What keeps me from buying one of those is the single coil pickups. I don't like the noise. Is it possible to get a split coil replacement for these pickups? Could a standard J pickup be fitted into the wooden covers? Or are they sealed?
Also It would be nice to have an extra fret so I could get the high E.
The sound is unbelievable though. Xotics are the best. I have heard some great sounding Marcus Miller vintage V7s that come very close.
To answer your question, yes. Some people have replaced them with the Aguilar 5J-HC. You have to remove the pickups from the wooden covers. But also know that I never get noise from the single coils. I play with both pickups 90% of the time.
Here are the pickups removed from the wooden covers.
That's really good to know. So I could put in a set of Nordie split coils.
I do like the system Xotic that uses single coils with the dummy coil for hum cancellation. I'm not exactly sure how that works but I saw some youtube clips about it and it seems very effective. To get that i would have to spent the big bucks on a top of the line Xotic.
Not much info available about how to mod a bass to have that.
