This arguably could be called “the bass that almost isn’t there” because of its unique body styling.

What do you think? Cool or dud?

  1. Although I don’t think it’s especially attractive, it makes sence. A place to anchor your forarm, a point to hook up your strap, and a curve for your leg if you have to sit as I do. Beyond that no exess weight. Id love to try one.

  4. I like the sound, but then again, I prefer studio clarity tone as opposed to a dirtier or even muddier live amp sound. The highs are impeccable on the harmonics and the string buzz becomes part of the sound characteristic. Very nice. Must be great pickups to get all that without the density of a body on that ole girl. I would like to hear more sounds to see if it can get low and warm, so to speak. Sounded like it was going direct into a mixing console without the nuance of an amp.
