well I have had this bass for three weeks now, and I must say I love it! Its got a fast jazz neck, small light body, and no neck dive!! It has some very useful tones. I mostly favor the split P pick up. The jazz pickup seems a little nasally for my taste. I do blend in some jazz pu for definition. But soloed it well....sucks. I don't know if it is the pu or the pre? Either way I still love this bass. I do think IM gonna swap out the pre for something else. Maybe a three band, with active, passive switch? This bass is exactly what I was looking for, I don't think I will ever get rid of it, I may mod it a little, but it is definitely a keeper!
