    I have this bass(5 string). It's been a solid one for me. It has a deep tone and although I've made a few changes (like adding an abalone pick guard/changed the knobs, etc), I have left the pickups/bridge, etc alone. My one complaint is that it's very top-heavy, but I just added another strap button on the neck to better adjust for this.
    I use mine pretty regularly and it's been a good bass--plus I've always liked the SG style guitars.

    good luck with it.
