  • Summary: I received it in a trade, and I couldn't be happier. The passive tone nails what you hear on those old larry graham records. Active mode is a bit noisier, it's true, and the preamp could be a little more versatile (you can really only get about 3 distinct tones if you're just playing with the bass and treble) but it does the job. I can switch between active and passive mode and balance it so that I have 2 distinct tones without a noticeable volume difference.
  • Pros: Great Passive Tone, Great Slap Tone, Light weight, looks, fit and finish
  • Cons: Noisy Stock Electronics

  • Summary: Features: A great looking bass. Love the pearl block position inlays. Has the famous "Leo Quan Badass II" bridge. Preamp with bass and treble tone control and passive switch. Full features available at http://www.fender.com/products//sear...tno=0257802321 Sound: In passive mode: versatile 70's Jazz bass tone. Great general purpose tone. In active mode: nails the Marcus Miller tone (of course), Great slap tone. Finger style tone is a bit on the thin side.
  • Pros: versatile, looks great, great 70's Jazz Bass sound, great "Marcus Miller" sound, killer slap bass
  • Cons: Minor fretwork issues, noisy electronics

  • Summary: I have has this bass for 8 years now and it has been through a lot. It has never broken down and has been quite reliable. When I first got it within in several months the nut cracked and I had to get it replaced, however. After that (had it replaced with bone - it was plastic) it was fine. I then noticed how loud it was, it's the pickups and I replaced them with Bartolinis, mostly for the rounded edges as the stock pickups are also stupid sharp.
  • Pros: Comfortable. Looks good. Solid tone.
  • Cons: Noisy. Some minor issues.
