I replied your PM, mine will be shipped in 2 weeks time. I will let you know my comparation with other hi end basses.
The reason I am buying this bass is because I am more and more into passive basses, which I like the sound better.
I have Sadowsky, Fbass VF4, etc, I play them passive.
I have 3 CB basses , 2 of them passive.
I prefer simple things, and you know my favorite bass now? my 70's P bass
, very simple and monster tone.
