I was looking at these basses and wondered how they sound. I was particularly looking at the 5 string ones and wondered how they compare to a Stingray or Fender Jazz 5 stringer. The electronics look almost the same as a MM (a big humbucker with selectable single coil mode or series or parallel humbucker mode, and a 3 band EQ). The body is also made of ash which is what a lot of Fenders and EB/MM's use I think. It says it's supposed to have a good sort of funk sound, I guess with a pretty fat bottom end but still clear and punchy. I'm going to try and find a music store with one if I can and play around with it since I've never heard one, but I was just wondering what people here had to say about them.
