Extremely nice tone for the cost, sounds amazing with a deep resonating quality. the extreme angles give it a super clear sound
eq's are very simple to use and add to the overall sound quality by being able to fine tune bass, treble, and middle sounds easily and quickly depending on each song your playing
Ease of Use
sounds great with a pick and finger style. havent tried slap bass yet but am sure it will sound great too
EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE. havent been able to find a bass that sounds this noce for under 800-1000!!
The Wow Factor
the look is sooooo sexy. i have see through black cherry. the extreme curves all though may first appeasr "goth like" are actually more suble and sleek than harsh
