Got this one back in November. Finally stopped playing it long enough to show off Arnold and Wil's handiwork - I still cannot get over how nice this bass is.

Hi Drake,

The bass really sounds excellent. It's very smooth and sweet in the middle and upper ranges of the bass with the Belcantos on the G/D. I've since changed the Belcantos on the E/A strings to Spirocores and it can really roar down in the lower register, too. Playability is simply fantastic; Arnold's setup work is without a doubt top notch.

All in all I couldn't be happier with this purchase,

Dan Tice
