Got this beast out last night. Has tons of bottom end and lots of usable sounds. Very giggable bass aside from looking hypercool and being easy on the back and hands. The bridge pickup doesn't have a ton of edge (no slap mojo), but it is good sounding on its own and mixes nicely with the neck PU.
My message: this is a base to use, not hang on a wall. And if he hollowbody and age say brittle, thin tone, think again. This baby can thunder.
