Oh wait. You're serious? [smilie=fun_84.gif]

Forgot to mention that this one has the #12 neck. You guys were right. The #12 is the way to go.

1/16" is a little less than optimal. Let the bass acclimate to Ohio for a few weeks, then add a shim if necessary.

Next stop is the K switching mod. But no hurry.


We have all kinds of circuits across the road. Lemme know when you're ready.

Thanks Ken. I'll be doing that at some point. Hopefully soon after everything I hear about the success of the K Switching mod.

This bass kills! It's hard to put down. It's hard to not play in whatever setting I have at the moment. My #1 Scheff is in Chicago getting some work done on it and when it gets back it's going to be very hard to decide what bass to bring on gigs.

Do these things ship with D'Addario stainless steel or nickel rounds? I'm a big fan of nickel rounds but whatever's on this thing are great. To me they have the "bite" of stainless steel but the shop owner said they ship with the nickel rounds. Just curious.

Thanks. Pulled out the birth certificate and saw that.

Taped a show with it tonight. I'll report ASAP on how it sounded in the board mix.
