    they are "Nifty" more than anything. cool to play, if you the money to have a "neato" bass, go for it.
  3. Does anybody have an opinion on their sound.

    I personally think they sound like crap, but that's me. Like a lo-fi P bass or something... hard to explain. They're definitely priced too high to have any kind of real value, but like it was said before - it sure would be cool to have one just to have one. :D
  5. Yup, what those guys said. They lack any kind of balls and the tone is wimpy, very lo-fi, but hey, I'd get one just for that occasional punk-ish session.

    I haven't played any of the new ones, but I never liked the sound of the vintage mustang. I can't imagine the new one's being any better.
