As always, I had a great experience dealing with Sweetwater. Tom Maxwell my sales associate cautioned me about the width of the neck at the nut. It showed me he really knew his products. I actually prefer it a little wider at the nut so it was fine. The bass came quickly, and it's a beautiful piece, I keep it out all the time so I can always see it. I would gladly do it all over again. I really love the bass!
