I have an ASAT Bass, I just finished up my first recording with it. I was really happy with it throughout the whole experience. I played with the bass boost on with both pick ups on passive. I think I got a pretty good tone. I'd love some feedback if anyone has the time to listen www.purevolume.com/incamera some of the pros of the bass were it's easy to setup with low action with no frett buzz. Has tone that can cut through the mix easily. EQ options on the bass make it able to get the sound you want without touching any EQ plugins.
