Picked up the bass pictured in December. Took months of playing through basses at the local store to finally decide it was the one. I'm getting a rockin slap sound out of it; lot's of crisp high end and boomin lows.
Also ended up frying my last bass amp (Ampeg B3158), so I just bought an Ampeg SVT3 Pro head. Working on getting a cabinet for it; I'll either get the Ampeg SVT-410HLF (4x10) or a Carvin v412T (4x12), but for now, I'm working with my friends 4x10 Behringer.
Same day I picked up the SVT, I stopped by Guitar Center and walked out with a badass pedal, the Sansamp Tech 21. Finally getting a tone through my setup that has eluded me for a very long time.
