My buddy Nick was in NYC for a recording for a few days and very generously offered to let me take his mezzo-forte carbon fiber bass for a spin.
the neck comes off, it's tough as nails, and plays like any other bass. It sounds great and it's actually a little easier to play than my main bass. Has a very soloistic, bright, punchy sound.
I want this to be the next bass I buy, without a doubt.
before the end of the year is a little tight for me, but you never know. I'd absolutely LOVE to have this for my trip to Switzerland in the fall.
