    I'm always either too slow or too broke.
    Congrats. Welcome to the Club. :)

    That bass... Congrats, I'm officially jealous. :)
    So, where do you wear it ? Up high à la Entwistle or very low à la James LoMenzo ??

    Hehe, right! And so I did! First I sold one, then I took this one in (20 minutes later...). Two other basses are to be sold too, no replacement planned for them (the Jack Casady and the Ortega D-Walker).

    You'll tell me.
    I tried up high, and it was comfy. Until I realized how far away the upper neck was... Then I tried several heights... none really prevailed.
    I ended up very low, I have a Burgundy M29 Levy's strap, to the max, to which I *added* a 10cm length of leather.
    And now it's OK.
    Maybe the NT version with the beak head has a different balance, though.

    Don't forget that if you don't like this bass, I'll be willing to help you get rid of it. :)
    (as long as I'm not booby-trapped by another Stunning Dolphin, either blue, or broadneck).

    Already decided: I wear it low. Played it for 30 minutes and already got a weak left arm. That´s why I sold my Stryker.

    Fortunately I already have a long strap at home. Only problem now: the upper cut of the body now perfectly frames my fat belly! :eek: :lol:

    the buzzard needs to sit so the right arm rests at the wing.
    It is the most comfortable design ever imo:)

    Designed like this, yes.
    But not comfy for me, the angle of my wrist to pluck the strings is too tight.
    I wear it like my Bro' Hardy : the upper curve is the perfect belly-rest. :)

    I got used to the slim neck of the Reverso. A changeover to play a fat neck again!

    Main problem if you wear it low: you don´t reach the higher frets like it should be. Otoh I don´t need this that often. And finally I found the right bass for the strap!
