    I've been flirting with the idea of getting a semi-hollow, somebody suggested the D'Angelico EX SD Bass. There's very little round here about the EX bass (only 1 review) so I had a look on their website. It looks and sounds like a great bass, but while I was on the D'Angelico website I spotted the EX SD bass. Hot Damn! Just look at it!

    Anybody played one of these? Wondering if I could get away with playing rock with it, my latest band is part-halestorm and part-carrie underwood.

    I had serious GAS for one, until I tried to play one at GC. It’s medium scale and that threw me (34” is my usual size). Neck dive too, but probably could have been dealt with by a wide strap. The one I tried needed a setup; the action was too high for my liking.

    I probably could have dealt with all these things, but it just didn’t speak to me.

    Bottom line, I wanted to like it, but didn’t, so I passed.
