    I just saw the new Supro Huntington bass and I feel like I need to see a gastroenterologist. I'm in serious, serious trouble.

    They are short-scale Fully passive basses with passive piezos. I've never heard of a passive piezo! They look amazing and sound better than any short scale I've ever heard. I'm so close to just throwing one in the shopping cart and kissing my last paycheck good bye. Someone talk me down.

    According to a few responses, the piezos are probably not passive. I cannot confirm or deny this.

    How about this? I gigged only one bass for over two decades, and over 30 years later, it's still my primary instrument.

    That more gentle?

    They played Led Zeppelin! Cheaters! Hype!

    They got paid, then, went back to their P basses.

    Are you certain the piezo is passive? It clearly states the pickups are passive, but never says "passive piezo" on the site. If it was passive, I would have thought it would say so.

    Assuming a passive piezo is one without a battery.
