That is cool. Please comment on its sound and how it plays.

Nice warm sound, loud enough to play as an acoustic - but when plugged in the pickups are excellent - its got these TV Jones pickups that are only normally found on the more expensive basses. Great action out of the box. The "thumbnail" fret markers took a bit of time to get used to - but they look cool!

Overall, I'm delighted!
