I've been reading the rave reviews on this bass from various stores & Talk Bass for sometime now. I happened to see a post that my local GC had just received in a new Alpine White Jack Casady bass ... I had to go check it out. Never had the chance to actually pick one up & plug in to see what all the hype was about. I was thinking this could be a nice replacement to my electric accoustic that is always temperamental to feedback, give me a nice upright sound and also compliment my main 2002 Gibson Les Paul bass. Having a full length 34 neck was important to me as well. When I entered the bass section of the store, it was displayed on a stand in the front ... I have to say it is one sexy looking bass ... catches your eye right off the bat. Picked it up ... nice light weight compared to my Les Paul. Proceeded to plug into an amp to check out the tone & playability. 3-position impedance selector switch 50, 250 & 500 ... one volume control & one tone control knob. Good solid & smooth feel to both the impedence selector switch & control adjustment knobs. It had roundwound strings which were a little too bright for my liking. Lots of tone variation with the control adjustment. The impedence selector on 50 provided a clean "accoustic" voice, with a lower amplified volume. I preferred the 500 setting with the tone control rolled back for a fuller, punchy bass tone ... Sounded great !!! I was already thinking of putting on some flatwounds when I get it home. The appearance & fit were flawless. Even the ends of the frets along the neck were smooth ... sometimes overlooked with less expensive guitars. The set-up needed to be tweaked, which I did at home. As mentioned above, I replaced the strings with flatwound mediums and reset the action & intonation. I do have to say that I'm not a fan of the 3 point bridge, but once set up ... no fret buzz & set on intonation. Absolutely love the flatwound sound!! IMO you can't go wrong with this bass for the money.
