I was at Guitar Center today just picking up some misc nonsense (string holder, some patch cables, etc) and saw this guy hanging on the wall. I've been jonesing for a new bass since I was never really happy with my Ergodyne. Eventually I'd like to grab an EBMM, but in the meantime this will definitely hold me over.
Sounds awesome, plays awesome, intonation was perfect right off the sales floor and it even has brand new strings on it. Sounds MUCH better than my old bass to my ear through the Sansamp, though I know fuck all about bass tone anyway.
I think it's an older model Custom 5. Has the Loomis-style satin finish (Vampire red), mahogany body/figured maple top with a maple/walnut laminate neck. No maple board, but hey - looks pretty good to me. I dig it.
I would use that bass to play some notes
