All my basses are made by me or changed by me. this is the first one i was happy with straight out of the box ! The only things I didn't like where : 1. the switch ( I like simple things and there are 5 options witch is to much for me ) 2. the 2 tone switches ( there are to much options that I do not need ) maybe I will remove these in the future The neck is nice the body is nice the paint is nice and the bridge is nice. The sound is over the top !!! it is loud and has a build in boost so it can be even louder. The neck is strong witch is a must have for me .
