    Haven’t even plugged it in yet. What a great feeling bass. The neck is wonderful, no sharp edges. Lightweight so should be easy on a strap.

    lowered the action and finessed the controls, the mid switch is handy and the mid cut on here works well, bass can be boomy but is tamed easily, the treble isn't crispy which I like. I rather like the tone, my injured hands no likey the roundwounds(my fingertips are on fire now) but Chromes are on the way by Saturday. fit and finish absolutely slay the Sire I had, this is "used" and was in stellar shape and plays SUPER well. the neck is easy to navigate and feels wonderful.

    Balances on a a strap perfect, weighs a hair over eight pounds. I'm not missing a fiver at all. My wife calls it the booty shaker, I guess there you have it

    I only got to play a BTB once, and I really liked it.

    It’s very well put together, once I figured out the switch is a mid switch things were easier to navigate

    Now I can play this beast, I’m glad I tried chromes on the Sire. This bass just slays now.
