This is basically just for people who are using some type of midi bass system and actually like it. What are you using? What's your setup? Currently I'm using a Roland GR-55 with the external pickup. I'll be upgrading and getting the internal pickup put into my 80's Peavey Foundation hopefully sometime this year. I'm running it through my Peavey Mark IV amp. I love it... I get an amazing amount of tonal control and I really enjoy being able to throw in the synth capabilities. For a while I was also running a Line6 BassPod XT Live with it through the guitar in/out... which meant 3 separate cables coming off my bass, it was weird and a little hectic, but I was able to do some crazy stuff with it.
