    Oooof. That's cool. Does it do passive as well? Could you lay out the controls for me?

    No passive option. Controls are:
    Bottom starting at front with black knobs:
    Treble, Mid, Bass
    Top knobs from front:
    1) Tone knob (pull out for HiFi mode which removes the gentle high and low pass filters... See comment below for better explanation).
    2) Pickup pan
    3) Volume, yes volume is at the bridge. (pull out for overdrive-not a harsh overdrive)

    I am now open to trade offers. However, being that I've recently purchased 2 basses, the trade has to either be an even trade or I have to get some cash.
    Thanks!

    The hifi does not have a mid scoop. The gentle high and low pass circuits are removed from the “vintage” circuit and the frequency response is changed to a linear one all the way down to around 10Hz the bottom end of the circuit and the top end extends well over 20K. I shot a demo video with Chopper on YouTube where he discusses the preamp design in depth covering this topic. Hope this helps. Best of luck! Great bass!

    I've gotten a lot of trade offers and I really appreciate that. You are welcome to keep them coming. After a lot of thinking, I'm really leaning towards a Fretless acoustic/electric bass. Either a Carvin AC Fretless, possibly Zeta Fretless or something similar. I wish I had the money for a Rob Allen, but........ Still feel free to send other trade offers.
