there's a fellow bringing his by tomorrow morning, i've seen "perfect" as well as horrible reviews.. the reviews on musician's friend were near perfect,though that's typical..and harmony central's reviews sucked major tush, what's the real deal with these? all quilt top and abalone,no substance? or up to the usual Yamaha standards,which are pretty consistant in the BB type basses I've played. do they require any mods? such as new tuners or bridge? anyone know the nut width? ...wondering if the 35" scale will feel uncomfortable to a strictly 34" player, I like a narrow nut,spacing..so I was kind of concerned about a longer scale,how it would feel.
