I've owned this bass for a few years, taken it on tour, recorded with it, and subjected it to many, many hours of playing. Its comfortable, easy to get around, well built, and comes with pro-grade active electronics to get a very powerful (if also a very LOUD sound out of the bass). It easily fits into each situation I've used it in, and I wouldn't trade it for the world... Certainly a workhorse for any musician.
