Just wondered if anyone on here owns one or has played one?
I'm contemplating getting one as I love the way they look, but what do they actually play/sound like?... bearing in mind they only have 1 pick-up and no contoured body (and also smaller frets, I think I read somewhere?!)

There's also a Sting signature version (which is a '53 reissue) but that's more expensive and looks exactly the same!!

I currently play a jazz bass, but do have an old precision and a Yamaha too. I use "Hartke" cabs and amp.

Any tips?
