I bought one several months ago and have been blown away by it, especially at the price point! It has been my main gigging bass since I got it. Having owned numerous Yamaha basses in the past, this is exactly what you'd expect, and although I never owned a 42x series, this seems like quite a step up from the 41x/61x series.
The neck profile is sublime, and the pickups are what really steps it up for me, they're incredible! Well, they're basically the same as on the P35 and 735, so they should be good!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
