Purchased this bass because I wanted something different then all the Fender clones. Well it did not disappoint! Finish was flawless. Sound is amazing, has a great low end better then the rest I have tried! Plus it is the signature model of one of the greatist bassists of the grunge era...Krist Novoselic! The only thing I would change is the 3 point bridge, but it does not take anything away from the sound or playability of this beautiful instrument!
