Buy it and be surprised !!!
With the help of AJ Berarra I purchased this bass and have been extremely amazed by the the playability and tones I've been able to get. The active preamp is very adjustable and I'm still learning the versatility of all the sounds. It's NOT a light bass so beware but being old school about weight, I think the heft adds to the tonal quality you get. The neck is very smooth and transitions from lower to upper registers is very quick and effortless. This is the most expensive instrument I've ever bought and I don't regret it one bit!! AJ can be reached at EXT.1325 so give him a call, you won't be disappointed at all!!
