Nice finish- looks killer. My only gripe would be the piece of maple they used for the neck. I know it’s only a visual thing, but if I was dropping the best part of $3k on a bass, I’d want the sexyness turned up to 11. The dark stringer close to the body and the general blah appearance of the back of the neck doesn’t do it for me, especially knowing the killer necks folks like Warmoth pull off. That’s just me though- I bet it sounds like a monster. :mrgreen:

How can they build something so close to a fender jazz and not be sued?

Agreed! I scratched my head when I saw the back of the neck as well. Doesn't scream quality by any means. More like something you'd see on a made in china knock off.
