    I've never played/owned a bass with it.

    However, here's what I have on it as a tonewood - "It has good extension in the highs and sounds quite "solid" because of a slight emphasis in the lower midrange/upper bass. It also has a slight emphasis in the mid treble."

    To me, that sounds like a description of alder that took Viagra.
