This bass is just what I needed to get back into playing in a group. I "put myself through high school" playing in our rock band 1966-69. Now I am back playing! One day I may go for something more exotic but between here and exotic this certainly fill the bill. I play in a combo with 2-3 guitars, mandolin and harmonica. Sometimes I plug it in to my Vox portable bass amp to keep up in strength of sound, but I usually don't have to when practicing. Its very unique and high tech, with fine electronics. Go get one!
This is a beautful bass. I got the sunburst. It sounds great pugged or un-pluged. I do recommend replacing the strings. I choose the Fender strings with a black coating. $20's They look and work great. You will need a good strap. Without it the bass wants to slide down when playing. The bass was back-ordered, but it came on schedule as stated. For the price the bass is a great value with the discount special that was available at the time. The Ovation hard case I ordered fit it to-a-t. I recommend the case to keep the bass safe and clean.
