In the Guitar Room at Sweetwater I was able to dial in a honking bridge pickup Jaco tone, a sweet neck pickup Motown tone, and a thumping... read more [+] dual pickup Jazz/ Precision tone with just a turn of a dial!
And this was through a small amp!
The greasebucket tone knob made all the difference by keeping the bottom pure while rolling off the highs.
it keeps the low there when you want to honk it without bloat or breakup.
The maple neck is slimmer then the American Standard and much more Playable, it just feels great in your hands.
And the color? Candy apple sparkle like a customshop color.
This Bass Blows the MIM's Blacktops, Modern Players, and Geddys away, hands down
Its $300 less than a American standard and Plays better.
I recorded with it tonight and it sits in the mix beautifully.
Own it and start owning today! close [-]
