  3. I own a 4-string one, and they are ASTOUNDINGLY good basses, with great tone, great electronics, and great necks.

    Yes, not many people know about the quality of these basses.The thing that impresses me the most about this bass is how even the tone is on the bass. The bridge system is one of the best designs I have seen.IMO
    this bass is as good as the sadowsky's I have played.

    Weight is 8.6 pounds.
    The neck is similar to a fender 5 string neck, but a little bit slimmer
