Picked this up yesterday, MIK Cort B5, and I haven't even given it a proper tryout since it has a lousy (for me) setup with ultra-low strings. Probably won't play in tune either judging by how the saddles are set. It's not my usual style of bass. I usually go for more traditional designs and non-active pups and of course, I haven't played a fiver in years (I love a 4-string with a Hipshot bass Xtender for a quick drop D when I want it).
I assume this is an early B5 since it was made in '02 and doesn't have the Hipshot Lic. hardware, and the body has a solid gunmetal gray metallic finish. Bartolini Mk I pickups and a Fishman preamp? The controls look to be Volume, Blend, and the usual 3 knob eq.
The bridge looks like it would be a bear to set up. Are these basses well thought of generally? Also, is the neck African Wenge? Thanks
