    Just sent a PM. Does this bass have the standard electronics configuration with volume, volume, passive tone control and treble/bass stack?

    A closer reading of your posting answered my question. I was a little confused by the words "W/VTC 4". It looks to be the standard configuration.

    PM answered. Yes, it has the standard configuration. VTC is just vintage tone control - passive treble roll off. It's nice to have the active/passive option, not only for the different voicing it gives you but also in case your battery dies in the middle of a set.
