You would be hard pressed if you tried to convince me that a material thing cannot be inspiring after playing this beauty. I've been going to my local music store and playing this baby for days now and I am absolutely in love. After my 5 string Fender Jazz bass Elite this is as good as it gets. I probably won't go another week without giving in and buying one of these. They are definitely the kind of bass that you will keep and play forever.
Very responsive pickups. The quality of the bass is very high. It is obvious that a lot of extra time was spent on this instrument, especially on the neck.
The maple fingerboard give the bass a very bright sound which complements the humbucker on the neck position very well.
Ease of Use
The neck is very fast and solid. This gives the instrument a very professional feel.
When you pick up this bass you can quickly feel the quality and high caliber of its construction and materials. The woods used work very well together. The electronics are second to none. You will not need to make any modifications to this instrument at all.
This bass inspires you to play the best that you can and play a lot more than you would normally play. You won't want to put it down.
Manufacturer Support
Never had to contact manufacturer.
The Wow Factor
This bass screams high end. People will see and hear that you are a professional. Don't let anyone tell you differently, YOU deserve an instrument of this caliber.
Musical Background:
30 years Classical guitar. 18 years bass.
Musical Style:
Classic rock, metal and Classical guitar.
