I recently purchased one of these and decided to bring it back. For some players i'm sure they will love it. For me it sounded like a tin can. I played it through my Ampeg SVT 6x10 classic with a solid state B2R Head. Don't get me wrong, the bass has a really clean sound, but no matter how much I tried to configure the settings the tone just hit my ear wrong. If you slap on it, the truss rod opening is a nightmare. But for the pick and straight finger style player the overall feel is very nice. I would call this bass very average. If you play metal this bass is for you for sure! But if you got the funk and want to seriously slap and pop, this is not the bass for you.
