I happened to be visiting my college today, and visited the corner music store nearby. While I was killing some time, I tried this bass, having seen it and not having played an acoustic bass guitar before. I must say, I was quite impressed. It had very tense roundwounds on, and sounded great. It reminded me of the acoustic solo Steve Harris played in "Blood on the World's Hands." I searched, and the last post about the bass itself was two years ago, so I figured I'd mention my experience. I didn't buy the bass, as I'm content with my Precision (for now), and it was too expensive anyhow, especially for an impulse buy like that ($800). Anyway, yeah. Nice bass.
