    Pros
    • + Very comfortable.
    • + Very aggressive when wide open.
    • + Simple.
    • + Great balance.
    • + Far more versatile that commonly given credit for.
    Cons
    • - Seriously powerful pickups when stomped, more grunt than most actives that I’ve played.
    • - Spend some time learning the interplay of the two controls to get the real goods.
    The trick to these ridiculously cool basses involves parking each volume pot at around 80% or less and rolling back one or the other from there to get more or less lower booty or upper grind. If either control is set to maximum the other one will have very little effect other than being full on or full off, the gradual ratio is where the magic lies. I thought that I’d miss the tone control (and actually have an SB-2T also just in case) but once you learn not to dime either or both pickups you’ll have all the control that you need. Great basses, I guess that Leo actually did know the score after all...
