    Steve Harris is playing it in the Aces High video. It's a blue P bass with an odd shaped body. I need this bass!

    No, not at all. This one has no pickguard and a body that kinda looks like the Spector REX.

    Mmm Unicorn = eww

    Ive never played a Kubicki , Heath :(

    Im sure id love one though because i dig Steinbergers and basses of the sort. (had a Hohner B2Adb headless for a while, loved the detunable bridge, like that on the headstock of the Kubicki.)
     
  10. they're brilliant...i like the honhers too, especially the jacks....but youre missing out :D ..well the neck is basically a stingray just not as thick and you dont have to change your fingering when you detune....BRILLIANT

    What do they sound like, exactly?
     
  12. well thats the sweet thing....2 active modes...3 passive...i can get it sounding close to a musicman, a jazz bass, and it has its own vibe..you can sound like john taylor...sound like many of the early steve vai, joe satch bass tracks, like for the love of god, answers.....i can even get a 90% match to the jaco sound by switching to a passive and rolling it all the way/90% to the bridge pickup..its one of the most versatile preamps ever
