    Yes, headstock and everything.
    Some models didn't have it , but most (including the Mexican reissue) do.

    It's now known as the Duff McKagan signature:

    Saying goodbye to the old bass as the new has arrived today. Such a fun instrument!

    Snap! Got this in 2011. More of a very-long-scale bass guitar that an upright at all, but very easy to play. :)[​IMG]

    This is way better - real double bass, only thinner and more manageable.

    There you have it- a translucent blonde American original 50’s p-bass. So I like blondes too- Incoming a few days after my coming birthday-

    The NS basses are great but you need to change the strings out to the orchestral ones. Way better tension and more acoustic sounding. The set they come with sucks.

    The Eminence is also not a real double bass by the way. still just an electric copy of a "real double bass" ha ha.

    My next bass will be a P bass. you cant get that P bass sound without an actual P bass as it turns out. ha ha

    Not sure if il get a 4 or 5 yet, Old one or new one, Dunno. Will see what happens when im ready. Right now I think id go an old 5 string if I could find one.

    The translucent blonde finish along with the thick c-shaped solid maple neck (with skunk stripe for the trussrod) is what sold me. I have a 57 Reissue Mary Kay Stratocaster I bought back in the 80’s and, let me tell you, the translucent white where you can see the wood grain is rather fetching-

    With that said, the American standards from 2011 on are superb and the SKB flight cases they came with are very high quality-

    The Eminence is NOT an electric instrument. It's fully acoustic. It has the same Realist piezo pickup as any double bass, only slightly adapted for a different body.
    As for the strings on the NXT5, the D'Addario Orchestral are what mine has (old version with slightly different silks I think) and they are pretty damn good.

    I really like the fit and finish and translucent blonde finish is quite attractive-
