    anyone own one of these? I just saw one for the first time, on the internet, and it's kind of sparked my interest. Looks like you could get that P-bass sound yet have the offset body style and slim neck of the jazz.
     
  2. I have a MIM RH that I made modifications to - including new rosewood neck w/ blocks, schaller tuners, and pup and bridge covers. They are quite versatile and have the Jazz growl and the Precision tubby tone. The electronics are very nice, as are the pups.

    Very impressive bass for the price but I found the EQ section to of little use. Feels wonderful and sounds great as it is but it would be a phenomenal bass, in my limited opinion, if it had a better active pre-amp. Maybe you could change the values.
     
  4. I actually don't mind the pre-amp, but I think the bass sounds great in passive mode.
     
  5. FlawLaw, where did you get your rosewood neck with block inlays?

    The bass does sound great in passive mode. Better than most of the basses I've played lately regardless of where they're made. I just mean that I think it could be a phenomenal buy were the active mode a little more flexible. That's all.
     
  7. Yes, I agree.
