Bit of a strange one in the design due to the deep bottom cutaway and the slanted fretboard giving 27 frets at higher strings and 25 lower down. Being a smaller bass, it's very practical for gigs. In all honesty. it fits in with the slap/tapping vibe it should be played with. Easy access to the 25-27 frets with the deep cutaway and the slap switch definitely helps once you hook it up to an amp.
