Hola boys and girls! After seeing one of these in Musikmesse I decided to pull the trigger yesterday, and it got delivered almost exactly 24 hours after purchase. WOOOOOOT?! On to the pics! I literally did nothing but search for fretless lessons while in the office. Too excited! Mysterious amp-shaped box. I did not get an amp with this. So the mystery box has my Mono Bass Sleeve. Could've been packed in the other box. Nice! So that's what it wasn't packed in the other box. It was mentioned nowhere that the bass came with a gig bag. Anyone wants a Deluxe Bass Gigbag from MusicStore? On to the star of this show! Oh dear Hell yeah! It looks way better than I expected Waaaay better Can't believe how affordable they are Those flames Me so happy! So, that's a Fame Baphomet 6 FL. Specs are: - Ovangkol body. I don't know if the stripes are common in ovangkol but damn that was a nice surprise. - Mahogany neck with maple strips - Ebony fretboard, no lines. - MEC active pups - MEC 2-band pre-amp - 34" scale Factory setup was ok, but I tweaked it anyway. I'm learning how to play this thing because the lack of lines and extra side dots makes it a little bit daunting. 80% of the time I'm playing out of tune It's actually easier to intonate on the lower frets, above the 9th it starts getting tricky, and above the 16th is extremely easy to go sharp. I ordered some sticker side dots to mark where the other positions are, as it only has them where you'd expect to have them (1-3-5-...) It growls and mwahs quite nicely, but the C & G strings are significantly quieter, I'll play with the pickups' heights to see if I can get it to be more balanced. It came with roundwound strings and the C sounds like a$$. After 2 hours of play I can see some little marking on the fretboard already I'm thinking about trying the D'Addario Half-Rounds but that set is pretty unbalanced and the low B will probably be just mud. I'll try them anyway, if they don't fit the bill I'll have to make the bigger investment and get either LaBellas or Thomastik Infelds. Each set goes for almost 80! And I thought paying 30-40 for a custom set for my 5-string was outrageous I'll go back to Steve Bailey's Lessons now. Maybe in a month or so I'll make a video. Almost forgot: Family pic!
