    (Something to read for more info )

    tone wise it’s a reverse PJ and to me really has a wall esq Spector kinda tone imo

    There are alder and ash versions of this bass. I’d imagine the trans finish ones were ash for the grain to show

    And these pickups seem to be ceramic rather then the trb alnico ones

    I find these ones have a very different voicing as compared to them
