Everything is perfect regarding to this bass. The sound, oh my... it GROWLS, it has deeeeep bass tone, it punches you in the guts... it has strong punchy CRISPY mids, and treble its PERFECTLY balanced with all frequencies, treble is there, but doesn't kill the bass tone, it mixes pretty well with the mids--- The Ripper shows you how a REAL BASS should SOUND. Long scale bass, comfortable neck, great comfortable body... looks GORGEOUS. GET ONE. Varitone switch, you will get 4 different sounds in 1 bass.
