I love this bass, just wish it were a tad lighter. I like to blend the P and J pickup tones, but it's nice to be able to twerk one over the other when slapping, picking, etc. Stays in tune really well, very rarely to actually have to tune during a set, and that's mostly after a lot of slap.
Mine was converted to a fretless by the previous owner. I didn't like the heavy poly on the fretboard so I am currently refinishing it. Bridge pickup is an upgraded Seymour Duncan pounder but it's pretty noisy.
This is my main 4-string bass. I've used it for everything from jazz to metal to pop-punk and have been able to get any sound I want out of it. Very gig-worthy and sounds fantastic. A little heavy so it's not necessarily the best choice for long gigs but still.
