Just got this beautiful bass on Friday. Redwood burl top, curly redwood on back, macassar ebony fingerboard. It sounds as good as it looks!
My pictures don't do it justice.

Thanks Mike! Charles, I'm still getting used to the electronics, I haven't quite figured everything out yet. I was expecting a lot of highs to come through. I do hear the highs acoustically when it's not plugged in, so I know they're there, but my amp isn't letting them through very well. I've been wanting to get a new amp for a while, so now it's time! My favorite sound so far is with the filters set as low as they go. It has a really strong 70's bass sound, maybe like Louis Johnson. The filters are rolling off the highs, but there's still a lot going on to make a really great sound. I wish I could describe it better.

Thanks everyone! I've been playing this bass for over a month now and it's as great as ever. It took me a little while to get used to the electronics, but I've been getting some awesome sounds out of it now. Before, I wrote that my favorite sound was with the filters set low. But I've been playing a lot with the filters set to let the highs through, and I love that sound too. Guaranteed to cut through in the mix! I'm still not that great at describing sounds, but it's almost like ringing a bell everytime I hit a note. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
