I have had many basses, and this bass flat out kills. It's light, has a very comfortable neck, and the low B is one of the best that I have heard in a 34" scale 5 string. I will add that the neck moves very little, unlike the Stingray that I owned for two years that would move under every little climate change. The string spacing is around 18mm. The tone..oh the tone of the bass is so awesome. Use the neck pickup and you get a warm, full p-bass sound. Add the bridge pickup (only three positions on the switch) and you get a nice sizzle and grind. Even using just the bridge pickup has a nice full sound that I have not ever heard in a PJ bass. I really think Yamaha basses are under-rated, and wouldn't hesitate to use this bass in any scenario - be it live performances or recording.
