Here is a deceptively simple sounding, yet tricky to play little riff that I have never been able to play cleanly on any other bass other than this Mattisson:
This bass is incredibly comfortable and easy to play.
The electronics are awesome, and the ability to play any chord or any note on any string and always have every note be 100% perfectly in tune is absolutely mind blowing.
