Closest StoreVancouver, British Columbia
the White Falcon has great tone and build quality (mine was made in Japan) for a set neck hollow body. The gold control knobs with (fake) inset rubies are way over the top, but match the also over the top gold metal flake binding. the thundertron pickups are awesome, but the locking tuners may be superfluous (and you don't want to forget you locked them) . This bass has the best tone of all the basses i've owned (Sadowsky NYC, Kinal, Rickenbacker 4001, Larrivee) or tried (fender, Epiphone JC, Dingwall) with the exception of my Speyer 3/4 upright. It has great playability (although not that comfortable if you practice sitting down) and is easy to set up
