The second 5-string bass I've owned, & the one that has stuck with me for the longest time, though I will probably sell mine soon enough. Great for beginners, intermediates & pros alike, as it has a fast, unlacquered neck, pretty well-sounding pickups, it doesn't go out of tune very easily & it's pretty much built like a tank. The 34" scale does, however, create a slight tone issue, when downtuning the low B (as it is with any 34" scale bass)
