The bass is heavier than it looks. The mahogany body and badass bridge add some mass to the design. The neck is very similar to a Jazz bass and has the same feel. You can reach all of the 24 frets easily due to the cutaways on the body. The D-tuner lets you switch from standard tunings to drop tunings on the fly which is a really cool feature. The ebony fretboard has a super smooth feel to it. With the neck through design there is no heel in the way so you get ultimate playability and ultimate sustain.
This bass has great resonance. Playing it unplugged you can really hear it. With the mahogany body and the Badass bridge you get a nice loud tone even unplugged. The mahogany body gives you nice thick low end while the maple top keeps everything clear. The neck through design gives you ultimate sustain and clarity. You can really feel all the notes resonate through the entire body. The EMG pickups had super clarity and response through all the settings. With these active electronics you can really dial in your ideal bass tone. Selecting the bridge pickup and rolling off some high end you can get the traditional Jazz bass tone. Even when you have the high end wide open the bass still has a full sound which lots of low end. The EMG bass pickups are not as over the top as their guitar counterparts. They seem to have a very neutral sound that depends mostly on your settings.
John Paul Jones is a bass playing legend. He could get anything he wanted in a bass design and this is what he wanted. If this bass is good enough for John Paul Jones it is good enough for anyone else. The design, fit and finish are all top of the line and have a custom shop level feel to it. The electronics and hardware are all top shelf as well. These are just about the best parts you can put on a bass. If you are looking for a great production bass with custom shop level quality this is a good option.
