Here's the initial impression: That should give you the gist of how i feel about the bass I'll do a more in-depth review after my 1212 gets here and i gig out with the whole new set-up, but man oh man does this bass sound great!! The mwah is definately present big time, but you can tone it easily down if need be with some right hand and EQ fiddlin' It's surprisingly deep and the OPB-3 is phenomenal at giving you dozens of USABLE tones. I can really bump up all the knobs to extremes and i just can't go wrong. And don't even get me started on the coil taps. They evenly boost the output and tone of both pickups (and give you hum unless even), which is good cause the Fatstacks are a tad quieter than what i'm used to. As far as feel goes, SLICK is the only word that describes it. I think as long as i keep the neck nice and clean, i might have to stick with gloss necks on my 5s The neck on this bad boy feels like home for me. The shape is different than i'm used to, but i don't see it making a difference in the long run. Balances great while both standing and sitting. Nice and light. and came with a sweet case. New pics, soundclips, and a more in-depth review to come.
