I don't know what it is about this bass but I'm in love with it. I just wanted to share with the world it's glory. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001R2O9SE I bought one at guitar center but I didn't know about amazon at the time. It's beauty is and understatement to its tone and thunder as I would describe it. I actually allowed my friend to record with it when they ran their first full length and they ended up getting signed and distibuted through victory. ( i know it wasn't the bass but still it's just cool to say ) But any how if you are looking for some heavy heavy and a FAT sound your best bet is this. plus it's gorgeous.
