excellent tone range for a hollow body with a great upright bass sound if you use the right strings
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
light touch, imminently playable
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Not as bright and snappy as a jazz bass but if thats what you want you don't need a hollow body

beautiful

I don't think you can possibly match it for the price
