I received my bass a few days ago, i bought it off of Reverb from Guitar Ranger. It is a desert model with nat-purpleheart. I have had many custom basses in my life and none have come close to this bass. Not only is it light as a feather and gorgeous but it sounds incredible. My bass tech set it up for me because the person who had it before me had the action pretty high, my tech could not believe how low he was able to get the action and still be clear and articulate. He said it set up better then my custom master built warwicks’ which cost me three times what this amazing instrument cost. I am saving up for a 5 string desert and maybe a desert jazz. Thank you, I will be a customer for life.
