This is a very interesting and cool bass designed and built in New Zealand by Tomm Stanley.
It has right hand tuning and a floating wooden bridge that is height adjustable. It has a very flexible tone control setup that is powerful yet easy to use.
The neck is wide and flat and on the thick side, ideal for players with large hands.
It is currently strung EADGC, and has nice low action with no buzzing anywhere.
It plays very easy and smooth, and sounds really nice.
