    I like it alot, very nice sound from it, the combination of one MM style pickup and one jazz is really good imo.. really heavy bass, soundwise. Playability is great, low stringheight, really playable.

    Just looking for other opinions :) just need to get talked out of buying it.. GAS costs me too much! lol

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I've tried a couple of these and I actually like them, especially for the money. The tone is nice and aggressive (and versatile), the neck feels good to my hands, they look good (to me) and they can be had for a good price.

    Alas, I have G.A.S.

    I've played a few of these at GC's and have been very impressed by both tone and value (as was BassPlayer Magazine). I've got a Lakland 55-02 (also an MM-J), tho, so I'm not GAS'n for one currently. :)

    But still.. im thinking.. its a fretless.. do i really need one? do i need a lined version? Im so unsure.. Cool bass, plays well etc.. This is hard.. I wont buy another fretted one as my warwick is more than good enough for that kind of playing/purpose
