    Hey guys, wanted to show you guys my new bass. It is a Rira. I know you guys haven't heard of it. But, my review of it is good. I compared it with a Yamaha BB604 and it won hands down, in terms of tone. Action is super duper low.

    It is a 4 string(duh). Body is a Walnut top and back sandwich with mahogany in the middle. Neck is a 5 piece laminated made from mahogany with walnut strips. Heavy? Well, not so. The 2-band preamp sounds good. Set flat, it gives nice low and highs. Enough to slap. Enough for walking basslines. But, who said enough is good enough. Tweak a little bit and you get the perfect tone for whatever style you are playing. Pickups are two jazz pups together ala Roscoe Back Fender. Bridge gives a very good sustain. Very unique. Go take a look. It is similar to the Innovator Bass Bridge from custombassparts.com.

    I bought it for only $800. Wish i could upload the pics. Never mind, i would them tomorrow.
