I approve. 100% Sounded great on our most recent recordings, sounded great at rehearsal. It sounds better then all of my other basses, hands down. Love the playability too, it just feels comfortable in my hands, and the string spacing seems just right.....no issues with missing strings on it while string skip picking. It's "my anti-tone" dream bass. raw, and extremely punchy. Paired with mah M2000 head it's very similar to my recorded tones. Now I just need to find another. It would be awesome if I could downtune the low B to A# and still retain some string tension. I'll probably have to go up to a .135 to do that, eh?
