First of all, this bass is criminally underrated! Not only is it bright, but it's got major booty on the lowend. This is a sick bass for slapping as well. I've not played it in the studio or on a gig yet, but I'll do that soon. I just got it about 2 hours ago. My only knock so far is, if you make a mistake or have sloppy technique, she will rat you out! Which, IMO, isn't really a bad thing. Enjoy the picture. Sorry guys, no shoes this time!
