I've been a bass player the better part of my life. I've owned many high-end premium instruments in this time . this bass just feels so good in my hands and it plays beautifully. the action in the neck are second to nothing I've ever owned. in my decision to purchase I looked at several more expensive bases and none of them sounded better or played nicer.
