    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Wow, this is a nice bass! I wanted to dabble in a five-string last week but my son had my only fiver in another town some distance away, so I started looking around for something in the $500-$750 range and I kept coming back to this 435. 9.8 lbs. Thin neck front to rear, less than 1.7" width at nut.

    The Mesa cab is beautiful in voicing and has a good solid thump. I'm not sure I'll need another but my OCD will probably force me to get a second cab fairly soon. I came across this one with cover in truly mint condition for $500 so I couldn't help myself.
    BassFace13 and cmcbass like this.

    Very nice choices on both. Congrats.
    FWIW, one plug & play gig we did as a Country band had a Walkabout that I used. An impressive little box indeed!

    How do you like this bass so far? I am debating myself between this Fender Player P bass (MIM 2018) but this seems to be be more value for less money.

    Sorry for the late response, Imenator, I overlooked it... I love this bass! Front to rear, top to bottom. Mine has great build quality and I just love the feel. Can't speak to the Fender Player but I did have a Fender Am Dimension that I didn't care for in comparison. YMMV of course
