Lol I'm only 17, trust me its all me :P. Turns out the weight on the low end of the strap not only works but looks awesome cos I polished the alloy and got our bands name engraved :D

So today I went and bought and Epihpone as well and I am really really impressed. I figured I needed one for gigging cos my band gets pretty rowdy on stage. Let me just say the gibson was NOT worth the extra few thousand dollars :). It plays almost the same and the sound is just a little bit duller. Brilliant :) Have to make another strap weight though :P

Same goes Mate....... I suffered with the sore shoulder but it gradually eased over time.... about 6 months or so. Stick with the Bird - best bass in the world!

Good luck!

Haha i am also inticed by a thunderbird my rockshop and the thought of the weight problem is not so bad for me since i currently have a neck heavy bass and have gotten used to it. though i need to save up more before i buy because ill be needing a hard case to protect its head because my current bass decided to drop when i was carrying it one day (strap came off, cuz head was too low.) and got a NICE little chip in it!!! haha how much did you get for yours because the one at my rockshop is a little over $1000 think... i hope its not a typo....
