This is IT!
This bass is simply amazing. Fit and Finish is top shelf, many compliments on looks already. Sound is so versatile and you can dial in any tone you want. Set the pan control, bass and treble control and tailor the midrange from there. Passive option is good, but the active pickups is where this bass really shines. Neck is fast and fretboard is accessible throughout. First thing I did was change the strings and its ready to go. I own both Fender MIM P and J basses, 2 Gibsons and a custom Carvin. This bass edges them all. I could have bought this bass elsewhere however, if you want excellent customer service, get it from Sweetwater. Matt Alexander and his team has been great throughout the years and all my purchases at Sweetwater have been A+.
