Couldn't find a review or video of it being played when I took a leap of faith to get this bass. I do not regret getting it. It feels really amazing to hold. Even with a long neck and smaller body it's weight distribution is really nice. The neck feels very slim allowing me to move round the fret board quickly, with a nice cut away for the higher register so you can make use of the 24 frets. The thru body neck really slims the neck profile to give it a slick finish. String spacing is nice and even though i feel like you can't judge a bass setup 100% out of the box it did come out with a really amazing setup from truss rod to action of the strings. As for sound it really blew me out of the water. Lot's of control, great pickups, and my favorite is the active/passive bypass. When you raise the volume knob your pickups go to a passive mode giving it a nice warm P bass like sound with just a master tone control. A plus is it also works if your battery dies, a plus for gigging players. Active has 3 band boost and cut, the boost can be a little strong and can distort the sound if you say boost bass too much with an amp that can't handle really low Hz on the low B string. All this is outputted by one pickup at a time with the pickup selector switch. Giving a strong tonal distinction between the bright bridge and warm neck pickup sound. Even when exploring active or passive modes.
