I confess that I had no idea who Mikey Way is - but I loved the look of this bass, and I already have a Bronco with a Gretsch 2202 pickup that sounds excellent. Why not give it a buddy? So I went for it! Silver metalflake, racing stripe, humbucking pickup, and black headstock for a very nice visual touch! Photos are taken side by side with my Squier Bronco....the racing stripe on the Bronco is chrome automotive striping tape. I like this bass. The sound is a bit different, the balance is decent and it has a ballsy sound. Now I just have to figure out which one to play...while more expensive basses sit idle.
