hey fellas, yesterday, a few buds and i went to the NY Guitar show on 34th st. it was a bit lack luster, and more for my guitar side, but lo and behold in the middle of the show floor was Matt and his basses. i got to talk with him, and found out he's cool dood, not to mention, a fellow philadelphian, my home town. :thumbs up: anywho, he had his whole collection from the "in stock" page on his website on hand, as well as a sweet candy apple red with matching headstock jbass style in alder with an ebony board. and i gotta say, it ROCKED! wish i had a pic to post, cause the finish was flawless. neck was very fast, and easy in my hands. fretwork was topnotch too. literally played like butter. had a set of Aero pickups. always heard about 'em, but never heard them. these were loud, punchy and very articulate. more on the revved modern jbass side. i asked what preamp he was using, but the bass was passive! made me think twice about my Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pu's. was a bit punchier, and markedly throatier. my friend said it sounded a bit compressed, but for slap, it killed. not as mid attenuated as the UJ's, so thumpin' had a mean gutsy to it. i was a little bummed that i didnt get to try one of his "semi" fretless basses. they have frets up to the 5th or 7th position, then go fretless the rest of the way up. can you say cool? i've been surfing the website, and his Level6 looks impressive. i'm not a 6 stringer guy, but this one looks very promising. it also has a 3 band demeter. very it also didnt hurt that he allowed you to demo the basses thru his Walter Woods Ultra & Bag End 1x12. my first time playing one, and admittedly, i wanted to try that more than his basses. but, overall, i was really impressed with his work. and best of all, they're incredibly inexpensive. for a wee bit less i could do a parts bass, but why when i could get a kicker of a Pulcinella. btw, you say his name, "Pull - Sin - Ella"
