    How’s the low B on this? Floppy? Tight?

    I’ll weigh in to say that I have a ‘98 FNA, and the B is substantially solid but not super-tight. Feels like the B on a good 34-incher like a Smith, but not *quite* as solid as the best B I’ve ever felt (my 35” 55-94).

  6. I have a 130 gauge b string so it's fairly tight in standard tuning and really only gets floppy when tuned down to A but still very useable.About as good as a 34 inch scale will allow for.It sounds great its a German made Warwick
