I received this bass last week andhave been playing it extensively. Wow! I'm pretty much a Fender guy but I have to say this is pretty nice. Mahogany body, 5 piece neck, custom Bartolini's, the mono rail bridge with detuner is verynice. Been using it at band rehearsal and the sound man likes it through the board better than the MIA Jazz. I am very impressed with the EQ, powerful and an incredible wide range. HAs anyone else owned or tried one of these? What is your opinion? Made in Japan.
