It's a fun bass to play Guy. The short scale and fast neck and mid-rangey growl just come together so well when playing rock/blues/punk music. If you happen to play with a pick at times, it takes to that so well also. Play this thru a tube head like an SVT and the sound is heavenly. That was my setup for a while when this my main bass. What an aggressive, cut thru the band, rock sound I had going on!
You know how I'm crazy for low action - you've got one of my basses. This bass plays well like that too but the closer frets on the short scale give you an extra bit of ergonomic lift - no hand stretching required - even in the first position. You can just fly up and down this neck like Jack Bruce.
The price is just crazy low but GAS causes a person to do crazy things!
