This bass is very convenient. I wanted to do a recording with an acoustic bass, but the bass player didn't want to drag his multi-thousand dollar acoustic around, so he brought this in for the practices. I thought it would sound like a bass guitar, until he actually plugged in and started pizzing and bowing. It sounded just like the real thing! It sounded so real that I ended up using this electric bass in the final recording. Another great thing about this is that you can feed it through an effects processor and play around with that. You can get some pretty cool sounds from it! Once I actually simulated a space ship taking off with this bass through an effects processor on my computer. I don't own this, so I haven't encountered any problems. However, I did ask the bass player if she has had any problems. She only mentioned about the nuissance of changing the strings, but that's about it. It looks like a great electric bass.
