    Built Solo’s FV Bass last month, and my bassist and I have been sharing it about equally since.

    It’s gorgeous, the stock pickups sound good enough that my bassist wants to use it for some of our recordings, the paint took to it well and doesn’t seem to be wearing off. Since I’m not a bassist, take this for all that’s worth, but this bass is all I hoped it would be.

    Some changes did need to be made; I had to expand the drill hole for the pickup wiring because both cables didn’t fit. The fret ends were extremely sharp and needed to be filed down pretty heavily. Nothing that doesn’t fall under the purview of “DIY”, though.

    *One incredibly important drawback.* As of writing, I haven’t found a case that will fit this thing.

    That’s about it, honestly. If it’s possible to edit these, I might come back to this after my tech does a proper setup on it, especially to check over the truss rod, nut and bridge.
