I'd love to see more of these basses. I'm thinking of getting one to go with my Ric 4003. How stable is the neck could you tune up to D with out any adjustments? Sound wize how vesitile is it? Is it a good studio bass? I play finger style mainly but I like to spread my self around so I have to be able to do all types of music. I'm not a big fan of 5 strings but this bass looks like it would kick ass. Would I be better off with a Stu Hamm or a Wal or a G&l? I like to be unique or at least a little bit different is this bass going to make me happy.
