Latest addition to the family.

well, one of my very unnecessary purchase in 2013, but it's hard to resist when you see a great used instrument in great shape that plays and sounds good. 

This is one of the most responsive instrument I've every played.  the combination between the magnetic and piezo pickup gives variety of sounds and they all sounded good.  Fbass preamp is very musical as usual, and the Hipshot-A style bridge gives that more solid, more aggressive overall tone compare to the wood bridge.  and this bass has fretlines that make things slightly easier to start with.

I'll need to spend some more time to play in tune before any further comments.
