    One of the things that people might not know about these is that they are lighter than the reverse T Bird. And even though it can't, that large long head stock does impact on the sound. You do get a T Bird sound out of these. There is some extra resonance in those head stocks.

    T bird sound In a package easier to handle.

    Not many of these out there.

    For me it just looked and sat kind of
    crazy because of how long it is.

    The tone, however, is sick!

    They do have weird ergonomics, will be interesting to see how it hangs on me when it gets here. Might have to move the strap button back to behind the neck again, or find another solution.

    Thanks to The Dialog for great communication- can't wait to see this bass in person, I've wanted a non-rev for years now.
