    Thumbs up Old Smoothie

    Just love this bass, the sound, the feel, one of the best basses I've ever had. There was only one in all Canada, and guess who got it.

    I must say what a nice looking Bass you have there. I was considering ordering a Smoothie but opted for the Classic Sunburst instead which is similar in looks. But what are the tonal differences in both Basses, as I would like to know.

    Custom "Old Smoothie" 2-band active preamp; vol, treble, bass. This is the difference in tone control also the sound is more mellow, but I'm using 35-95 gauge bass string with very low action.

    I should have mentioned in my last post that mine also has a 2 band EQ. So is the Smoothie more mellow than my 2 band EQ Classic. I thought that the preamps were totally different as is the humbucker.
