Bought from a fellow TB'er, this bass just arrived today. The sound is unique with both pickups closer to the bridge; the tone is perfect for current rock such as Muse, Cage the Elephant and Rock Kills Kid. Looks like my Ibanez will get the BEAD stringing for metal. And I absolutely love the satin black body/rosewood fingerboard with chrome accents. It has a balance that just suits my taste.
