    I would really really dig it if I can get a real idea what this bass sounds like; the FMI demos on YouTube are so processed that they are hard to judge.
    Would love it if an owner could plug it straight into a DAW interface and post a sound clip; a bit of fingers, a bit of pick!
    Thanks in advance to anyone taking the trouble.

    Gassing hard for a Cabronita myself.

    Bump - someone here has got to be able to give us some aural insight.

    The Hammer
    I don't own one but I did take one for a spin at a local music store. Was playing it through a Markbass LM Tube/Markbass 2x10, tube off, everything flat. My impression - it's an old-school fuzzy/muddy sort of axe, good for country & roots. If you want clarity and articulation, forget it. It's the kind of bass that doesn't need a tone control, just dime it and leave it, there isn't enough brightness there to worry about. Not a whole lot of bottom either, though that might be the cab. This particular one was nice and light but slightly neck-heavy. The neck is very round and thick, not like a modern P at all. It was not setup well from the factory, too much relief and the intonation was off.
