    Lot's of tonal capabilities. It pulls off the jazz bass tone very well but can also be very aggressive if you need it to be. This bass feels very comfy with the cut away relief sections in the body and this neck is one of the best I have played. This bass has a very Sadowsky feel to it.

    Is this the same one that was for sale up until very recently? I had one like this, but it had DCs and 17mm spacing.

    That color combo and black hardware is just sick! And of course, Nino's work is top notch. Great bass! GLWTS

    This one is slightly down sized with a sharper 3/16" edge radius and a standard Fender J is full sized with a rounder 1/2" edge radius.
