Fantastic Instrument!

I paid extra for the spalted maple top and I get my musician friend's eye's bugging out when they see it. They gasp and say, "It's beautiful!" "Wow!" etc, and that's the reaction I had too. But that's not even the best part of this instrument. I bought a headphone amp and headphones, and the bass is TOO POWERFUL for the headphones with the EQ turned up. So I have to pull the EQ back to almost zero in order to use the headphone amp with it, but it sounds fantastic anyway. I also played it through a Brian May AC30 and it sounded great. It's got a great ring to it. With the EQ there's a tremendous range of tone available with this bass, so there is no shortage. Great instrument. One of my all time favorites.

Nice Bass

Bought this bass to record backing tracks to play acoustic guitar over.For the money, the fit and finish of this instrument is excellent. The burst and the overall color is excellent. It has a very comfortable neck profile and nice variation of tone is provided with the pickup configuration.Of course, it is not a high end instrument, but for the cost, I am well pleased with the quality and playability.
