    so, i've had this thing for a few days now.

    i was a teeeeeeency concerned about getting used to the 35" scale.

    took me a bit.

    my streching regimine fixed that fairly quickly.

    now, i'm SOLD on 35" scale.

    my 34" bass seems kinda puny now.

    the b, THE B!!!!!!!!!

    can't wait to get my unlined phenolic neck!!!!!

    sorry for the rant...i love spending little, and getting lots.

    plus, Mike T. is really supportive. even with his bottom end product!!!

    535? mmmmmmmmmmmmmm........................

    That 35" is nothing! I can go between it and my 4 34" with no problems.

    and THE B!!!

    I was worried a bit about the neck dive, but that was because I'd never had a bass that did that. Fortunately, the act of playing is enough to hold it up, so it's not a strain in the slightlest.

    And I love that nearly flat radius Mike Tobias has on there. It's buttah!

    Yeah, the K5 fretless RAWKS! :D

    Mike do too!!! ;)

    Nicest dude in the biz, and one of the giants at makin' basses. One day I will own a 535 or 635....one day....

    I've been saying that since I picked one up the first time I was at BC... Heck, even a 435. If Mike made it, I'll own it!
