Awesome basses. I'm yet to get a neck through but have several rebops and one is my primary bass.

Thanks guys, I’m totally in love with it, sounds great, feels great, and certainly looks it too...I’m going to change the wiring though to a vol/bal setup instead of vol/vol though, just a preference

As well as I’ve upgraded the pre to an emg btc, I was going to get a bts but musos has the btc as old stock so got it for half the price of the bts....I wasn’t sure what to do with the left over hole so it just got covered with a Spider-Man sticker for now

Very cool, nice one Heath1986! Digging the spider man sticker too. Maybe you could install a producer switch like Lee Sklar?
