UTILIZATION

I’ve used this bass in a studio only.
I play mainly guitar, and I needed a bass that can cover many genres.
With standard tuning and dropped ones, I’ve never had a problem.
From Pop Rock, to Heavy Downtuned Metal, this bass can cover a lot of ground.
The manual is really well written

SOUNDS

As stated above, I used it in the studio for a lot of projects and genres.
No buzz at all and the neck is quite good.
My favourite models are the ones based on the Warwick Thump (for harder genres) and the Fender Jazz (for pop-rock).
It has bass, mids, highs, volume and pickup controls on it. And with the turn of a knob you can choose a great variety of models. This is done thanks to a piezo electric pickup in the bridge. It can be more or less similar to the models, I think that it goes from a 60% to a 90% of the original sound, but the case here is to have choices without having to do a bank robbery!

OVERALL OPINION

The bass was discontinued in 2007, so if you are able to find an used one in good conditions and for a good price, my advice is to take it!
You will have a lot of great choices, and if you are using it in a studio the possibilities are endless.
