    I've been wanting a nice bass for awhile and this was a perfect way not to spend 10 x as much. Thanks SX. I don"t have pics yet and as soon as it comes in from CA I will post.

    It puts me in mind of an Elite with its light ash body{one piece}and one piece maple neck. I'm already shopping for a loaded Flea pickguard... I somehow expect the electronics to be bad ,,dunno... I"ve heard good things about them and a deal for under $300 US. I have only one other bass ..an all maple/ 85' Carvin with Bartolini"s which is well rounded and works for most everything.

    Thanks!Am impressed as well
    I'm enjoying the sound so much I may wait for the Flea pickguard upgrade.. I will post pics of the guts when I switch to EB strings.
    Am running through 4x12 and 5w mini amp right now .
    Need a good bass head.
    Just picked up a ditto so I can loop bass riffs and jam with drum machine.. fun for hours.

    Good luck with that. I tried running a ditto in synch with my SR-16 and found that without a midi hook-up they would drift out of synch pretty quickly. YMMV and if you do know a way to make it work please let us know... :thumb:

    I love those necks with the block inlay.
