I have to agree there. My 73 screams BASS big bold and in your face...like right now Fat and warm is a good way to discribe it. If you are a player who is used to having allot of high end tone you will hate it. I have changed my whole bass style and gone for low fat tone with P basses and flats so this bass is great. I will work with the original as is no matter what to get my tone. I think Chefs mod is awsome thou.It was done well and i am sure sounds great.
