    Has anyone here had any experience with this bass? I currently own a Yamaha bb1600 that I absolutely love, but I was thinking about picking up another bass and this one just looked too nice and got decent reviews from a couple of sites and this one:

    I'd love to hear a first hand review from an unbiased bass player of this guitar.

    The one totally stupid feature is the stereo outputs. There is no mono output with signal from both pickups in it! :confused:

    Personal opinion: discusting!
    Terrible balance. Heavy. The plastic surface makes the sweat come out as from a fountain. And the plastic sqeeks!
    On top of that, the sound is very limited. If I was to draw a diagram of output vs. frequency, it would be similar to a track profile of Tour de France - all ups and downs.

    But it is cheap and looks different.

    Your choice.
