    Sounds great, but I'd absolutely have to put flats on it with tone like that.

    I love those pickups

    What it's not my cup of tea, as with Alien basses, is the 4er bein' 32" scale

    I mean, let all my other 34" and 35" axes alone, I do have a 28.60" 2006 MIM Precision jr. and a 30" AXL McCartney Violin

    But as long as I'm concerned I experienced not feelin' at home with 32"

    Apart from that, I too would put flats on it, but not usin' picks.

    I almost don't use picks anymore but, if I'd do it would be with

    Is that bass in particular "great with flats"? I think so... thus no picks on it, IMHO

  4. I believe it is 34" scale.

    That rumbling in my guts tells me my G.A.S. is about to get worse. I've got a thing for 32" scale basses. This might have to be my next one.

    Strange... Warwick lists the German-made Star bass as 34" scale, but the Rockbass Star as 32" scale. Wonder why the difference?
