Good grip, like any Precision with a Jazz Bass neck :o).
A big body, not too heavy, the bass is well balanced (certainly thanks to the massive headstock).
High frets access is alright,; not outstanding (it's still a Precision). But it's better than a Fender, thanks to the highly sculpted heel. Still, for the very scarce moment I need to reach the 20th fret, it suits me perfectly.
The neck, typical Jazz Bass is fine. Far more pleasant than usual PB log.
In short, it's still a super Precision with a great Jazz Bass neck, and a hybrid between the PB and a Warwick (pickups and woods).
Plugged in a Ampeg SVP-Pro preamp, a cab simulator (Torpedo PI, awesome), a Firepod and Cubase. Now plugged in my Fractal Axe-FX Ultra with a few great sims!.
This Meanie is a happy compromise between a Precision that would have more guts and ... a Warwick! Yep, it’s more punchy, than my Corvette $ $! Perfect, I love these sounds!
It has way punch enough for big rock and metal! And it’s still rather versatile for more styles, from bluesy to jazzy stuff, and slap, etc. Still with a good character (I hate bland basses like Ibanez, they can handle any style, but desperately bland in all styles).
It is still quite versatile, with a beautiful personality, a look that I love, a real in your face sound.
It’s just a very simple parts mutt, still, it goes beyond what was expected of her!
Very enjoyable to play, a real character and punch, and a look that I like The finish is excellent, flawless assembly (well, it's still a Mighty Mite neck, not ultra high end stuff).
Slight criticism only for the looks, the tuners that are ridiculously small compared to the size of the headstock. But I wanted modern tuners, not those awful dust friendly tuners you still find on any Fender.
Apart from that, now I want a 100% PMC made bass! I can't wait to see his Blast bass that should be unleashed within a few months!
