Definitely worth the money. The transition from 34" to 35" might be tough at first, but it's a step in the right direction.

I struggled a bit with the extra long scale at first, but in the end the superiour articulation makes it worth the effort. Overall there's nothing I can find wrong with this one.
I play this bass through a Marshall MB30 combo amp, mainly for metal and jazz. The construction of this bass guarantees a full and deep sound, with absolutely no noise at all. The 3-band EQ also provides a full range of tones that would match just about any style.
I haven't had it that long, but it gives a rather durable impression. So far it hasn't gone out of tune once.
