Got this bass after much research. Not into active pick ups like the elite, and I like the simple one pickup design as well. The features of the nut, string through body and better bridge than performer made the black one at only $200 more an easy decision as after market, it would cost more for these upgrades. The playaibility is great. I was playing a cheaper Japanese made brand that starts with an I, and this is so much better. The neck is wider than I am used to, but i like it as the strings don't slap the neck when played like on my other model. Nice and beefy. The sound is amazing, nice and full and round, but not muddy. The highs are clear and defined, but not shrill or hollow. I am not sure how the pickups measure up to the Yosemite ones on the performer, but they sound great with my band - loud stoner / acid rock band. It has *that* sound you are looking for. I play with SVT3 and 4x10. I rated features only four as it is simple, but I don't want features anyway. I made support 3.5 as I have not used it.
