This bass sounds awesome! I am primarily a Fender Precision with flats guy, but the band I'm in is leaning toward a more gritty, roundwound rock tone. (Think Allen Woody)This bass is definitely not as ergonomic as a Precision, but it has more output, and and nails a nasty rock tone. The neck feels like it goes on for miles, but is easily playable. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I wanted something different, and really like the new, (for me), look.The only negative is I received the bass with zero setup. No neck relief, even after tuning, all frets buzzed! I had to laugh at the QA tags stating it was set up. Every bass I have ever ordered was somewhat set up and just needed some tweaking... not this one!The quality of the instrument is good, just not the company setup. (Can't blame the bass for that).
