This bass has great playability and is everything I hoped it would be. If you take your time to setup up this bass just the way you like it, you'll never need or want another one. The thinner neck makes playing a breeze, yet is still rugged and solid. Whether playing slap bass, funk or digging in for a rock groove, the numerous tone adjustments let you zero in on the exact sound you desire. I am very happy with my decision to purchase this bass. When I played my first gig with this bass and my bandmates turned to me to acknowledge the amazing sound delivered from this new bass, I knew I made the right choice. Add on the phenomenal service from Sweetwater and this was an instant homerun.
