thought id pass this on. I paid $1000 usd for it plus about $370 shipping. I would not buy another one!!!! first, finish sucks. Its white and I can see dark through it all over. There are scrapes and scratches all over the fretboard, paint on the side of the fretboard and on top. Its very light esp for a saposid ALL MAHOGONY bass. It was sapose to be a neck thru, its a set neck. The pick ups are total shit, useless, weak and thin. the headstock was sapose to be painted the same waqy an epi is, its ALL white. I will say that my tokai (korean) smokes this piece of crap. So, dumb ass me. BEWARE, and the worst part of it, I got it JUST before southpaw took orders! But I got my gibson thunderbird today. Someone tell me how and Ill post pics

i did too until later in the process his OEM manufacturer is in china. Thing is , i get it theres the heel that a set neck will have, clearly NOT a neck thru. I had to send pics he didnt believe me, then said basically oops. Yeah ok. the Custom shop is made there. $1000 for a chinese made set neck? a crappy one at that

Why not return it and get your money back? It clearly is not as described in a couple of ways.

I thought about it but I've delt with enough people to know when they're not interested. I'll fix it up new pups and keep rolling! I have my Gibson now so I'm over it, just want others to be aware.
