We had a Mexican member sign up that had a set of three Rail basses in three colors just like I do a while ago. Maybe he is downsizing?

I'm not entirely certain, Paul. I suppose I am worried unnecessarily about what the climate down in that part of Central America might do to introduce warp or flex into the construction of that bass.

Just a lack of experience and knowledge on my part, I'm sure... scratch

Not sure either, but weren't they graphite like the steinbergers? If so they don't warp.

Warrn will no doubt have better info than I, but I think you'll find that the only graphite on these is the nut:
Rail Bass

Well, Fear not! I think the heat and humidity of a Minnesota summer would be more damaging than the relatively cool, dry summers of Mexico City, which is around 2200m (7200ft) above sea level.

Mexico is part of North America, btw, rather than Central America Smile
