UTILIZATION

no need to brag again the handle of the JB: This is a pure delight.
The maple fingerboard gives a hand "snapping" sound, but frankly it's all in the attack and one can easily get a dark sound like a rosewood handle. The maple neck is harder, it gives a bright against a terrible slap (the bass is a bit made for ...)

SOUNDS

I play on rock, jazz, funk ... so versatile in adapting his game right hand obviously. on the other hand, potentiometers are old (basically everything thoroughly in one direction or the other). So basically two sounds: pasto way by cutting the neck pickup and treble, and more round and warm by putting everything thoroughly.
I play a Mesa Boogie Walkabout and 2 bowls in parallel (2x10 and 1x15). Mesa brings a terrible course grain (tube preamp), which serves much bass. But I also played on a MarkBass amp, it works well also:)

OVERALL OPINION

I've had several years she did all my rpeter, studios and Live. When it's a little road, I take the Ibanez (less but less fragile). The beautiful varnish of this guitar and the attraction it has on other bassists makes me suspicious when beufs that end ... a little late.
2000 euros is a sum (I have a feeling she has dropped a little), but this bass is really a killer. There is little that low period which more skotché me, but hey, here it's a little crazy amounts and even the means, do not forget that the most important is when even the game, not the wallet!
