I bought this bass at a music shop in my Area call Alexandria Music Co. I usually don't go there because of their lack of selection. Not very good stuff. But i played this, and I fell in love. I payed $420 plus tax and all that new.
I love this bass for many reasons. It's neck is so comfortable and not a bulky 5 string neck like so many other 5 strings. It thumps beautifully, and not to much. It is not neck or head heavy at all. You do not have to constantly adjust your positioning to be comfortable.
The strings are set too low. All i had to do is adjust the action and it was perfect. Other than that, no dislikes here.
It is not Neck/head heavy. The thickness of the neck is comfortable. I like the smoothness of it's bolt-on neck. The input goes loose a little. Easily fixed.
This bass is a metal bass by far. Not a beginner bass. It plays like a dream. Good show bass. Good for almost anything. So comfortable.
