Hi Mark,

I just wanted to tell you that the bass arrived without any problems or delays. For those last few days I was testing it a little bit and it looks like there's nothing to complain about. It's really fast, comfortable and has a nice tone. Thanks a lot for your help and for telling me about this extra 5-string with added C ( I think I'm gonna keep this set-up ).

Kind regards,
