Great bass. Very well made. It feels solid in my hands and very familiar. Quality materials and craftsmanship. The arsenal of tones on this bass are very versatile. Its practically a Swiss Army Knife of bass in your hands. The 18v preamp provides tons of headroom. The 3 channel on board EQ is very easy to dial in per your taste in quality bass tone. And the combination of a flamed maple neck with ebony fingerboard is quite tasty. A very sweet and rich, warm tone. And that low B string is tight and punchy. It sits well in the mix and you can dial in to cut through as well. You can get thin tone or thick tone. It’s hard to put down at a gig. So many options. Well worth the investment. It’s my #1. Ernie Ball raised the bar if you’re looking for this kinda axe in my opinion.
