So I just got this Agile Argus 630. Previous owner upgraded the pickups to a Dimarzio Chopper in the bridge, and GFS dual blade pickups in the middle and neck positions. I like the fact that they are hum-cancelling. Now, I'm trying to remember why I wanted a Bass VI. It's... OK, everything works as it should, and it makes a decent short-scale bass. It has the D'Addario EXL156 .024-.084, on it, and they seem alright. I know I was thinking I could do some chordal things with it in addition to playing bass lines, but so far it's got me flummoxed. I'm going to try some sounds on my Pod X3 and see what happens.
