Has one of the best sound i have ever heard from a bass. Easily beats some of the 600$ basses. Never tried Samick basses before, but this Greg bennett series bass is worth every penny. High mass brigde & the neck thru design gives you all the vibration you want. The bass boost is really powerful. 4 knobs: volume, bass boost, treble boost, pickup balance. It is very versatile. The clean sound is beautiful, the disorted sound is just scary. Its literally growling. Slim but solid neck, plays really good. Has a minor neck dive as all sg basses, my epiphone Eb3 has a worse dive. The only downside is that it is pretty rare, and hard to get your hands on it.
