Got this from Thomann and must say that this bass shreds. Light and handy, it has a perfect metal sound. Very good bridge and materials. With a little effort got in on drop B tuning and it rocks.

I just purchased this bass from my local Guitar Center, been oogling it for months now and finally decided it was time. AND This bass shreds! it is an absolute metal riff monster, but it's also pretty tight for slapping and tapping. It definitely shines the most when you are just hammering some good old death metal. I recommend this bass to anyone that wants a simple set up with all the tone you could possibly desire in one clean, evile package lol.

I would love to have one of these in BEAD. Any chance this kind of tuning is ever going to be released? Getting a bit tired of customising EADG basses. Who needs a g-string anyways
