    They look nice but I'm sure you'll have to bring a lot of scratch if you want to get one.

    Not really. I think I was quoted $1600 plus case for a 5. It played well, was lightweight and had some useful tones... and some not so useful ones. Worth checking out if you like the design. It "is" different.

    Even if it had "wide" string spacing (looks like it doesn't) and killer tone, I don't think I could get past the looks. There's plenty of other basses that sound and look pretty.

    It's all a big YMMV, of course... keep in mind that this opinion is coming from someone who likes the look of the Spalt Matrix. :eek: :)

    Fuzzbass, kinda reminds me of the Dano Longhorn.
