I bought this after finding it on MusicGoRound's website.  Overall, it's not a bad bass.  It needs some tweaking, but you can tell that Warmoth makes quality parts.

The cat is not for sale.  :icon_tongue:

I don't know about the bass.  I might keep it or I might not.  If I sell, it will probably be parted out on eBay.

was there an upcharge for the figuring on the cat?
(sorry, i am terrible at writing jokes)


i dont think i have ever seen an SG bass with MM style humbuckers. but then again, i have only seen a handful of SG basses.
i think that those ceramic type pickups have less output than the (alnico?) ones with the huge pole pieces, but i am not sure.
does it sound like a musicman or an SG bass?

soundclips?

Well, I've got the thing in pieces now, so unfortunately no sound clips.  :sad1:

Overall, the sound was pretty basic (pardon the semi-pun).  I wouldn't call it Music-Man like at all, although the bridge pickup did have a nice amount of growl and upper midrange to it.
