    I got to play one today. I will see if I can record a video tomorrow. The electronics are nice. It seems like a bass designed to get mid heavy tone for Jazz or Fusion. It felt just like a Carvin (I wonder why?)

    I came back and made a video today. The electronics in this bass are first rate in every way! I was especially impressed with the preamp. The first video was flat, and the sound was thin and midrangy. On the second video, I start out flat, and then I pan to the bridge humbucker. After some knob twisting I boost the bass on the humbucker and it came to life! This is certainly not my best playing, and you need to listen with headphones, but I think I was able to capture at least some of this basses versatility. This is a J/MM set up that works really well without a coil splitter and complicated two band mids like a Peavey Millennium. The neck pickup soloed kicks butt with a bass boost too.

    Here is a really good player on the five string fretted version.

    What was the neck like. Slim J, fat P?
    String spacing?

    Thanks

    If I remember correctly, it is slim like a Jazz, but it has been a while since I played that bass.
