I read a lot of Wish Bashing and I often want to agree. But only to an extent. With WISH you have to know what you are doing, what you want and have vision... or know someone that is really great at taking these basses and turning them into something beautiful. I use a guy in Cedar Park, Texas (Scott White) look him up on Facebook). Wishes start out needing a lot of work but the joy of owning one is in what they can become. I have owned 2 and want another one. I hated that I traded my first wish (my avatar). So i got another. The tone is awesome and there is no need for a truss rod. I also play upright and love the thicker neck. It actually fits perfectly in my hand when I play (larger hands though... i guess that might have something to do with it).
