I wanted to have a bass that I could set up and keep in 1 whole step dropped tuning (DGCF), and I found a good deal on this bass so I bought it. It's a Dean Rhapsody BB4. Bubinga top on a Mahagony body, with Grover tuners, EMG-HZ pickups and so on and so forth. After I set it up and got it all intonated correctly, I plugged it in and gave it a once over. This thing has some sweet tone. Something really cool is going on with the pickups, when you back off one of the pickups it creates this nasily midrangey type tone. Almost as if the pickups are wired out of phase or something. Once both pickups are full on, it has a real deep bass tone. So far I'm stoked!
