As a profi-bass player I was a little concerned about the "Custom" tag with a price <1500€ as i normally associate "custom" with expensive. I didn't need to worry - this bass IS every bit a custom-build! I chose the P/J pickup setting combined with a maple fretboard. The sound is excellent. From a "biting, nasal" sound when employing the rear J-PU to the almost horn-like sound coming from the P-PU at the front, this bass gives me all the sounds I need in one very well-balanced, light and excellently built and finished instrument. Finally, I'd like to say a big thank you to BITE for their excellent customer-service AND for delivering what they promised - a superb instrument built by musicians for musicians. I'll be buying again (if the girlfriend allows). Marc, Stuttgart, GER
