The piezo is big and warm and full. With foam under the bridge it gets about as close as you'll get to an upright sound.
The mag pickup is great, really immediate and mid forward. 3 band EQ AND roland 13pin output to connect to a GR55 or similar.

Here's Esperanza Spalding playing one of these. If I was to guess, mostly on the mag pickup:
Great sound samples here:
Recommended Retail here is Aus is $3,499, but some of places selling for between $2900 - 2600
Asking $2000. Comes in a sweet Godin soft case.
Prefered pickup as it's an odd shaped bass that doesn't fit into any hardcase I've found, so might be a bit tricky to ship, but if you're super keen lets chat.
Prefer cash as I've got my eye on another bass, but might consider trades + or - cash for:
-pedal format preamp with a BMT tonestack.
-Micro-tron iii or 3 leaf envelope filter.
-Powered PA speakers (pref 12's, RCF or comparable)
-Maple Board P bass
