Zombie thread ;) .

The guy I made it for is actually a drummer I play with in an originals band who started dabbling in bass a little. He is super-happy with how it looks, and more importantly how it feels, plays and sounds.

According to him his playing (technique, speed and effort) has improved dramatically because it's very easy to play (low action, narrow and thin neck, and nice finish), and he got a good deal as well.

I really should record some sound samples at some stage of my prototypes but I'm not a showroom player - any suggestions as to which riffs/grooves would work?

Regards,
Michael
