    As the title implies:

    Hardly a scratch on it and came with the case. I flipped an SRFF806 for it. I feel that it give me most, if not all, of what I was getting from the fanned fret model: 35” scale allows the low B to ring clear and the connected upper horn give lots of sustain and helps with even string tension across the spectrum. Overall I’m very happy with it. Looking forward to getting back to my Bach studies on it.

    I was using my FF but eventually decided that I would rather play it on a parallel fret bass. And I like playing them on 6-string basses.
