After a lot of research using the net, bass forums, you tube etc, I finally got an opportunity to try a new 2013, sunburst right out of the box,
the action and neck feel were incredible, ( I want all my basses to feel this way ). The tone quality, and versatility from the pickups, fantastic.
The Hip shot Drop D Tuner works great also adding to versatility. The 3-way split switch for the pickup selection is exactly what I needed, simplicity. I really wanted the black on black and was able to find one, after trying it out, it was a 2012 and been hanging around awhile - same silky feel, great tone as the sunburst I tried, a testament to the build quality.
