    ...lol...if I can stop 'droolin' all over it !! :)

    Initial impressions: very 'powerful' .....strong mids, deep,very distinctive lows....can get super growly if you dig in just a little.

    I haven't even touched on the tone filters/p/up pan yet. The 'Pick-attack' pullup is crazy man....Talk about face-shred !!!!

    It balances very well.....and is not nearly as heavy as you would expect of a mohogany/walnut bass.
    (I have it a bit lighter than my MM5'er.....but heavier than my Lakland 55-94....maybe around 11-ish...)

    I like !!

    Thanks Guys !!! :D

    This bass has me gushing !! (..and that's not an easy task )

    Very 'Foward' Tone.....I can't believe the 'Growl' I'm able to easily conjure up !

    This truly is a custom pc.

    From what I'm told ...it's a Mach II body style, with a Mach III neck joint ( easier access to upper frets, rather than the 'block' neck joint of the typical mach II )

    Also......the Walnut facings seem a bit special .

    It plays like a dream ..... :)

    ...can't wait to take it to this weekends gigs !!! :D
