    Can the bass sound like a standard electric bass like a Jaco tone or does it only sound like upright?

    If you favor the Bartolini magnetic pickup it sounds like a traditional fretless electric bass. If you go the other way and favor the Ghost piezo in the bridge, it takes on the sound of an upright. I tend to play it with the blend set at about 35% magnetic and 65% piezo. The bass is quite flexible tone-wise but what really sets it apart is it's ability to sound organic and upright-like!
