Owner's comments:
"Yo ho ho! I did get my new bass, about 2 months ago. I'm still getting used to it. It feels great, I love the new neck shape. The cherry top is real resonant. I get a great slap tone out of it. I know, I don't slap. But between teaching and having a bass that slapping actually sounds good on, I might start. I stayed with Bartolini but went humbucker this time."
