    I agree! At that price, it's a fantastic platform to experiment with downtuning. There's no way it's on par with a Dingwall, but you could throw whatever electronics you want in there and probably get it sounding great for a fraction of the cost.

    Seriously tempting even though I have no immediate use for one...

    Not the same thing, but I just ordered a Brice 34-37" fanned 5-string. I'm thinking about using it to tune down to G#, but I'll decide that after I get it and play it for a bit.

    I'm definitely interested in your thoughts on it once you've had some time to play it. I usually use a Bass Whammy to 'tune down' when recording stuff lower than B. It actually sounds pretty good but I'd like to have something in the stable to do it without pitch shifting.

    I might order that model soon, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it once you've played around with it, did you get the one with a bubinga or mahogany body?

    I went for the bubinga. The sale price got me. I'm supposed to have it tomorrow. I'll probably do some test recordings this weekend.

    Been low on money but I really need a bass like that soon, especially cause of those upcoming new rosewood/bubinga laws, I'll be glad to hear those recordings, especially stock ones, there's nothing up except that video with the modded one.

    GAS (or is it BAS?) is getting stronger for this. Dammit, I need to re-evaluate my collection again and make some room.
