So, I actually got this last week, but I know better than to trust myself about keeping stuff, so I waited until I was sure I was keeping it before posting here.
Honestly, I'm surprised at the build quality. It's a solid feeling instrument, great fret work, no flaws.
It's also absolutely the most fun I've had playing in ages. It truly is this odd but fun middle ground between bass and guitar, and for people like me that aren't big fans of playing regular bass, this is a cool alternative.
With the actual bass pickups, it does sound 90% bass-like to my admittedly amateur ears. The EQ is definitely very flexible too, making it really useful to get a variety of tones. I was able to dial in a Justin Chancellor style tone using the added treble, bridge pickup, and believe it or not the EZMix 2 plugin.
Great looking fiddle. I give it two weeks.
