Sound Quality
The sound of this bass is rich, clear, and growling. I run it through a SWR head and cabinet(6 x 10's), with new strings the top end is a bit bright for me so I roll off the horn of the cabinet until the strings settle in. The low end is clear and punchy and the B-string is tight and articulate. You can get alot of good tones with the Bart preamp, but I generally don't mess with it, I just change the EQ on my amp if I want to adjust something.
Other than replacing the battery twice now, and the strings I have not had to anything to the bass. The Hipshot bridge and tunning machines will probably last forever. This is the bass I always play out, I don't bring a back up, just an extra battery.
General Comments
The overall rating? I just ordered a single-cut 5-string fretless, That should say how I feel about CB Basses. All the 10's are well deserved!
