Thanks guys. I've been playing for about 45 years, and I have zero experience with AEB's. My thinking is this would be an inexpensive way to get familiar with one, above and beyond the 5 minute grab at a local store.
I saw the add in Bassplayer magazine, and figured, what the hell.... I'll try one.
It's a long scale, 24 frets. Not sure of the electronics, I was told by a local guy to watch out for feedback, as it comes much easier with an AEB, then with solid or hollow body electrics.
