If it's good enough for Hot Chip / LCD Soundsystem, then it's good enough for me!

Gorgeous !
So what do you think of it ?
I have love/hate relationship with mine.
Sometimes I feel that the pickups are much too strong, the low E string is a bit loose due to the short scale neck, perfect tuning cannot be achieved because the bridge location is slightly too close to the bridge pickup...but this thing has a tons of mojo !

So far I'm pretty much loving everything about it, only I wished the neck was a bit less fat. I was surprised as I expected something similar to the guitar's neck but it is a bit of a "round" feeling, baseball bat-ish neck. Will try to get used to it.
And yeah I'll have to try out different strings too...

Yes the neck is definitely fat and round, but I like it a lot.
Regarding the strings, I have put flat wounds on mine and I definitely love it.
Some basses do not go well with flat wounds, this one does !

I just found this for sale for 150€ with an non-original finish, is it a good deal ? I don't know anything about this basses, but I guess a short scale might be cool with flat/tapewounds?

I had to sell mine as I really couldn't play it - my hand would cramp up as the neck was so big. It's weird as the guitar versions have impossibly skinny necks.
