    Kind of a late nbd since I have had this bass now for 2 weeks
    Was after a Violin bass , went originally looking for a Hofner Ignition but due to the recent rosewood regulations there apparently has been a bit of a supply issue (at least in the uk where I am based). Was about to give up and go home when I spotted this beaut. Plays great, is nice and light, also it has the cavern bass spacing which means it has loads of low end and it came with a hard case smile.png post-576-0-10788300-1494953828.jpg post-576-0-23087700-1494953807.jpg

    Enjoy. How does it play / handle when you're seated?

    Feels fine seated and plays great, some people have said this style of bass is a little uncomfortable to play but I find this bass fine

    Plenty of people will disagree, but I find violin basses one of the most comfortable designs for a number of reasons: scale length, string spacing, bridge position.

    Congrats! An old friend had a Vintage Tony Butler signature pbass, and it was a really nice instrument. I was very impressed with the build quality of that brand.
