    Im on the fence of ordering the Skyline version of the hollow body. But I cant try before buying. So some sound samples would really help.
    Also any comentary comparisons to other basses so I can get a clue of what to expect would be great.

    One of the worries I have is that the Bartolinis might sound to polished/nice. All basses Ive tried with barts have not much "soul" IMO. But these are custom made so they might be great.
    The reason for wanting this bass is my love for the Epi Casady bass.

    BTW How is the weight of these basses? More or less than an avarage P-bass?

    Bump :hyper:
    Can it approximate any other basses sounds?

    Well on the weight question I'm gonna say that is lighter than normal basses.Well hollowbody guitars are lighter than their solid-bodied friends

    I own a Skyline HB and I love it. I also own an Eppi JC and a Gibson Les Paul Signature (the grandaddy!). the Skyline HB is extremely well made and sounds wonderful, but different from the Eppi. I really like the coil tap switch on it. It gives it more tone options than an Eppi. It is a big bass and weighs close to a P-bass. I very highly recommend them.

    Thanks!
    Are the tones polished/hifi or more old school?
    Are there any gigbags that fit these big basses?

    Big time old school! There must be a gigbag to fit it, but I bought the Lakland hard case for it, and that is what i would recommend. It is much easier to keep it hydrated during the winter in this kind of case.
