  5. Ergonomics of that bass look great. Upper horn comes up between the 10th and 11th (?) fret. That makes for a comfy reach for anyone with fretting hand mobility issues. This bass has always been on my list to 'try'.

    Yes, the strap pin and upper horn are both a bit forward so even though it is 34.5” scale, it’s very comfortable to play from first position up...
