I sold mine. When test-running it in the shop, I was overwhelmed with the play-ability, looks and ultra-smooth (duh..) sound. It was not long that the ultra-smooth sound became a bit annoying, especially in a band-mix. The Old-Smoothie in my opinion is lacking character. I had the same with the Reflex - too bland. The bass is not too blame -. It is a beautiful well crafted great sounding bass, just not my cup of Musicman tea.
