HEY ITS MAH BIRFDAY!
And in celebration of the blessed event, dear wife presented me with this



Let me tell you why you want this bass.
Humbucker in the neck is LOUD and BEEFY. and VERY DARK! It's almost like having flats on the bass. I've got the stock roundwounds on, though i usually use flats.

Bridge pickup is bright and spanky. Just like some wierdos like on their Jazz bass for clanky spanky toanz.

The scale is 32" easier to work than a 34" but more snap and definition than a short scale. A lot better low frequency response than my mustang bass. The neck is almost "P-bass" wide, but I found it usable. It might be due to the shorter scale that I fit with this, and not a ful scale P.

With Fuzz: The humbucker kind of overpowers some of my fuzz pedals. BUT switching to middle or bridge makes it plenty snarly again. I played it through an 8x10, with my Surrender Dorothy and Baby Thundaa pedals.

SUMMATION: Its got a lot of sounds, an easy scale, and it's cheap, as far as nice basses go. It's kind of ugly, I'll admit. But I'd rather have the electronic options than the better looking single pickup model.

haha, well we sold some on the Kickstarter, but we've been so busy with the Pitchgrinder and building our other pedals, we haven't relaly launched the thing. It doesn't even have a proper enclosure design yet. It's like a more predictable great destroyer. It has a lot of synthy overtones.
