It's amazing. The perfect example of how Japanese instruments blow the American ones out of the water. This bass only costs about $2,500 but feels like a one-of-a-kind, handmade masterpiece. The JMJ pickups configuration is brilliant and allows so many tones. The 3 way selector switch toggles between Jazz only, Humbucker only, and all-together. Super fast Japanese neck, luminlay dots for low light situations, 24 frets, super curvy body, and open-gear tuners. It makes me a better player when I pick it up.
