    I've had this for about a week now and I'm loving it. I've had the 5 string version for about a year now and I was waiting to see if they were going to do a 6 in matte black, they didn't so here we are.

    The 5-string version of this is currently in the lead to be my first bass (for hacky recording). Do you find it ergonomic and tonally versatile?

    I've got Musicman's and Dingwalls and I find the EHB is the most comfortable out of them, they're super light and they sound great. And I've been playing Musicman for 10 years

    Which level is your 5 string, 1000 or 1500 (or more to the point, Nordy’s or Bart’s)?

    I wish Ibanez just used normal soapbar pickups personally.
    But that personal gripe aside of mine, this thing looks stunning!

    Thanks. How do the Bartolini’s stack up in your opinion?

    I've been curious about this bass, and have just ordered one. Thanks for sharing your experience and that video,
