    No way dude. It is very clean and clear. That pickup and pre amp are pretty responsive to your attack and can sound very articulate.
    I recently bought a Travis Bean so trying to offset the expen$e. The Slammer is awesome in every way.

    Definitely cool - standard 34" scale? how much does it weigh? How would you compare it to the Explorer?

    RGB has the coolest assortment of axes for sale.

    Thank you!! Imagine what I keep!! :)
    Both basses are brighter than expected and also comfortable to play. Both have pics of their weight on the scale in the ad but Slammer is lighter (9.06 lbs). I think maybe the Explorer sounds a tad meaner and Slammer a bit cleaner, but it responds well to a hard attack of the strings. Slammer is 34" and Explorer is 32" but plays very long, if that makes sense. I have played both recently and have Youtube videos of both. One is posted earlier in this thread.

    DOH i didn't see the scale photo. Thanks for the info! and I do know what you mean about playing long, i have an issue with that tbird/explorer style of bass a lot of the time, and the washburn shape would be better for it...
