    The past few weeks I have been trying a lot of basses looking for some new sounds for the studio. Not at all looking for a 4 string Jazz but when I came across this bass today I was blown away. The tone is absolutely insane. So huge and 3D. Brought it back to the studio and tracked it and I was crushed. What an incredible axe, so happy. Plays flawlessly too.

    That's a professional quality working man's bass, nice!

    You're at the right place to ask about meatier strings for drop tuning too! :)

    So how is it? I've been wanting one of these for a while now.

    Edit: I'm too stupid to read the OP apparently.

    :D

    I love mine but may be trading/selling it to get another F-bass or Nordy. Congrats though these instruments are top notch quality for sure. Nice Bass you got there!
