Yesterday I played that bass (cant remember the excact model) at a music store and I was suprised to see how good it was. It was excellent, so easy to play, even it is a pretty big bass. The neck was excellent and the tone was also great. But I didn´t quite understand the meaning of those carvings on the highest frets on the D and G strings, what are those for? And secondly I ask opinions from people who have that bass. What do you think of it?
