Just picked this up from a guy on Craigslist. It is a super cool bass. The pickups are super punchy and clear with an awesome mid-range bite. It is sort of a one trick pony, but that one trick is super good sounding. Some people might not dig the aesthetics, but I think it is a really classy looking bass; very simple and understated. In addition, the toothpick neck is probably the most comfortable neck I have ever played. Amazingly shallow front to back. The contours are super deep on the body and it is incredibly comfortable.
