a band was giggin today at my uni (latrobe), and the bass player had a bass that i had never seen before. i was standing on a balcony behind the band, and i saw that the neck was carbon fibre, very rare in oz. this got me interested, and i decided to speak to the bass player after they finished. it turned out to be a Status Stealth 5 string, which i had never heard of. the bass player claimed it was worth $5000AUS and that there were only 3 in the country, then he offered to let me test it (unplugged, all the amps were packed up by then, so i can't comment on tone). 1. This thing was SUPER light,it turned out to be completely carbon fibre!!!! it felt like half the weight of my stingray copy. 2. The action was the lowest i had ever seen, i have only played bass for 8 months but the neck was so fast on this thing that it practically played itself. 3. The strings were very floppy, but the slap sound i got - even unplugged - was pretty damn amazing. i was belting out seinfeld in not time. 4. Did i mention it was SUPER light? 5. the strings were spaced apart quite well, so it was no problem getting my thick weightlifting fingers inbetween the strings. Anyway guys, has anyone heard of this bass? i hope i made your day with this story.
