I have read a few posts about these basses and people seem to really like them. What is it that you like (or don't) about yours? It seems like a lot of money for a plywood bass. I had an opportunity to briefly play one a few days ago but didn't get long enough with the instrument to form an opinion. I am trying to decide whether to put the money into a solid top bass for around the same price. I was surprised at how large the New Standard was and the neck felt really thick compared to my old bass. Am going to have another look this week but am interested to hear what people like and don't like about these basses. Thanks.
