Got this monster a couple weeks ago. Been playing a Conklin GT-7 for awhile now, and have been wanting to go up to a 9 or 10 for years and years. Holloway ended up mentioning this was for sale over on talkbass in another thread and the price was too good to pass up. It's a little rough around the edges, so far I've completely gutted the electronics/pickups. It had some weird stereo config that didn't really work that well and the pickups ended up being EMG 35 sized underneath the wood. I threw some cheap seymour duncan passive pickups I had laying around in for now while Nordstrand makes up some for me. I put in an Aguilar OPB-3 in as well, I like having active preamps on basses. Its 34" scale and I tune it F#-B-E-A-D-G-C-F-Bb-Eb with .174-.009 Kalium strings. I do two handed tapping stuff like pretty much every other person who gets one of these does. The only video of solo stuff I have for it so far is kind of rough, I'm still tweaking some things on it and my pedalboard to get where I want everything before I do some more. All in all I'd do it again, I love having the range.
