Sitting bored one day in Tower Music waiting for my brother's guitar lesson to finish, I spied this beauty on the wall. Dont get me wrong here, the picturs MF has here suk, these things are GEORGEOUS. I played the natural finish one, and WOW, for the price you cant beat it. The pickups have a nice crisp tone, the bridge is stellar, and the neck, very smooth, and not too large, even for a 5 string. Good with funk, metal, jazz, anything. A VERY GOOD bass, this thing easily matches up to other 5 stringers that top $1k


immaculate,, perfect bass!!!

This is the best bass anyone could ever ask for. It has such amazing features , it has an onboard EQ which is really good for switching you tones quickly and effectively. the pick ups are also top of the line the best money can buy and they have awesome tone and sound. The bass its self is just straight up sexxxy; I have the red one and the wood used to build it is just fun to look at it,s so beutiful. It has a set neck which gives it an incredibly smooth feel while playing. The only draw backs i have are , its heavier then my first bass which was an ibanez, but what ever who cares. Do to the fact that it has a set neck if you break the neck it cant be replaced ,,.
