And here it is:
(English is NOT my native language mind you)
The action is really nice over the whole fretboard right out of the box (lower than my other basses because I like it high, but I'll leave it for now).
Heavy guitar, but I like that. No scales here but I'm guessing just a bit heavier than my American P-bass.
The fretwire is smaller than I'm used to. If that results in a more woody tone I cannot tell you yet (no amp here, except a small, rattling 5 watt transistor guitar amp, NOT a reference).
We have a gig tomorrow evening/night so let's see how that goes (Fender 100T amp, Markbass 4x10 FP).
The strings are also thinner than I would choose but I've been wanting to try thinner strings so that works out well.
The bridge has a real solid feel and look to it. Nice.
It has these guiding grooves in the plate so the feet of the brass sadles stay put really well in spite of the strings having a bit lower tension than a long scale bass.
What I don't like is that the controls (the upper volume knob) are so close to the bridge/strings.
When I'm muting and picking, or muting and fingering and I'm going for the D or G-string that knob is in the way and I'm bumping into it.
Also, when I'm playing with my thumb I sometimes grab the lower strings with my fingers but that's difficult on this one.
Not a dealbreaker really. Each guitar has it quirks.
Nice P-bass neck. The neck is lacquered at the back so I might sand it down a bit later on. We'll see.
Finish and quality is really good for the price (only 384 euro!), although the tone pot already has this light crackle in it (again, for the price the build itself is really good).
Because the body is longer at the bridge, the bass -when hanging- hangs more to your left moving the nut at about the same place a long scale nut would be. Handy also.
When switching from long to short scale the change in string-length and your muscle-memory sometimes make you go too far (or short) when sliding.
But this longer body takes care of that.
Also the medium scale strings feel like a nice compromise between longscale firmness (handy live, because they can take more abuse without detuning too much), and that sweet shortscale thump (also nice, but one has to be more delicate live when playing hard/loud parts).
Anyway, looks and feels promising.
Let's see how the gig goes.
