    Well, I played one a long time ago, really liked the sound, but it was before I was really capable of judging quality. At the time my only real complaint is that you really can't play it sitting down, but it felt good and sounded good too.

    i played one about a year ago, and as far as i remember, it was not very versatile at all. it had a good rockish sound when played with a pick, but for finger style, slapping, tapping, and pretty much everything else, it was fairly poor. but thats just my opinion

    but do you both feel that it has a good rock tone? that's what i'm looking for in this bass. my fender MIA Jazz bass is very versitile, so i have that covered.
     
  5. the tone wasn't bad but i did not like the 30" scale has anyone ever seen one that is 34"?
