I probably should've mentioned right off that this is a very versatile bass as far as tone, by rolling off treble on the neck pickup, I can get nice fat P-Bass sound, only with a lot more sustain. That's what these beasts are known for, sustain,....sustain for days.
This my first Rickenbacker, and my first bass, but it's the second neck-through I've owed, I used have a 64 Gibson Firebird I when I was in my 20's.
