I have not been able to play this beautiful looking bass yet and was spellbound at the price for the bass being a neck through. I was wondering is the bass a well made bass and a good buy? And is the bass good for a rock/blues/jazz/reggae type sound? I play mostly finger style and some slap if that helps also. p.s. If you could would you please leave out your comments on the whole Jerzy Drozd issue.
