Owner comments: Sound-wise, as compared to my other bass (which has Seymour Duncan Bassline soapbar pickups with a Seymour Duncan preamp), the regular finger style sounds better than my other bass, a smoother, well-rounded sound. The slapping tone isn't as thick as I'm used to. That being said, it took me a while to get the sound that I wanted out of my other bass, so the fact that I got my regular style sound better the first time around is very impressive. Also, I am really glad that you put the thumb-rest on my bass, having it there makes it a ton easier going back and forth from regular style to slapping.
