Man, those things look great! How does it sound? Volume?

Can you tell I want one?

Jimmi, that is a cool bass. I've never played one, but I know MK has a great rep. Congrats brother [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Paul, they sound as good as they look. the volume was more than loud enough to play acoustically with a '65 martin (rosewood back and sides), an "Orpheum" mando for a 1-4-5 bluegrass jam at work.

Plugged in this thing is a fuggin beast! I am even considering playing it for a few select songs at gigs...

thanks Pete. I need to let you check this beauty out bro!

I only have one complaint: the bridge pins are too hard to pull out to change strings. I had to pry them out with rubber protected tip plyers.

Jimmi grab an pin puller for $1 and round out the slot a tiny bit.
Also if you have the pins out may as well put wax on 'em....works for me anyway.

And they DO sound like a piano with RW's when they're amped.
