I got a modern player, I have played it about 15 mins. Fedex came right before I left for my NYE gig. The neck feels like a P neck. The thing was setup ok right out of the box and the 5 tones are all useful. I can see it being a great starter bass or a nice back up. I wanted a maple boarded bass and wanted to try the H style pickup for a change.
It could use a tone control, but I would probably leave it full most of the time, anyway.
