When I first started playing bass, I didn't know exactly what I wanted. I was playing a lot of punk rock, hardcore, and some metal. When I became interested in R&B, Funk, and dance music, I needed to find something that wasn't so humbuckery and more versatile. I came across this when a friend of mine showed me one at a local music shop. I picked it up and fell in love. It's been through the ringer, and I've personally made some hardware adjustments to mine but I pick up other j-basses and nothing feels quite as right as this one.
