I’m still tweaking things,but with the soft old school Optima RB flatwounds,I think it sounds wonderful. It has a little bit of a Hofner Beatle bass hollowness, and a very nice compressed thump. (And I don’t use compression in my signal chain). It also has a lot of note clarity throughout the fretboard, rather like a Rickenbacker. The p90-derived pickups are very hot, and will overdrive most inputs, so I’ve lowered them all the way down,which may have been an overreaction. (They came from the factory practically touching the roundwound strings.) I am going to raise them back 1/4 and see how they sound at tomorrow’s practice. (They are great sounding pickups, I’m just still getting used to them.) My biggest hurdles have been the tight string spacing,very narrow non tapering neck,and flat-edged bound (both sides) body. But i am enjoying the 32” scale and lightish (8 pounds 5 ounces) body.
