I've been playing bass for 50 years and thought it was time to buy my first brand new instrument. After a lot of research called Jim Swain. Been dealing with Jim for about 25 years and as always his advice was spot on. Received my bass and it was in perfect tune! Kudos to ESP for building a beautiful, great sounding bass. The active electronics give you every sound imaginable and it plays like butter. Kudos to the Sweetwater staff that checked, packaged and shipped it so that it arrived perfect.
Thanks to all!
