    So i found this bass in a pawn shop the other day. I liked the makeup ..basslines..Hipshots and all .I got the bass for $225.00 with new strings and a cheap soft case.

    I like passive 4 stringers but there is hope the old band will regroup with a classic rock /blues lineup and a new bass might be cool.
    I'm still learning what all the knobs do and if anyone can help here I would be grateful.I did a search and really did not find allot on the net or here on this bass.

    I never knew they made a MIK Fender until I did some research and seen the old 24 fret 4s were MIK..I thought Japan. Its a steady bass and has massive output for an old flats /passive player.

    I used 5's years ago in classic rock bands and loved the big B at the fifth fret to have that E to play allot of song in that sweet spot. I will try to post a pic soon. thanks for any help ,ideas or whatever.

    From the top they are: Volume (some had a push-pull for active passive), Pickup Blend, Stack (treble top/bass lower), midrange and a Mid-Scoop Switch. I have a 4 banger and love it.

    ?It has the pull out passive active switch which I love since in heart I'm a passive player.

    I got a good deal and the bass looks brand new. Did I ever see me getting an active bass again No. Did I see me ever getting a 5 string again. No. But a few months ago I was walking away from music and sold all but one bass a beat up MIK Squier which I modded and its great. I think its time I try new bass and new sound since I'm not playing old country and oldies anymore.
    I'm even trying to get used to the rounds. Time to go in a new direction as a bass player.
