specs: 30" scale Body: Alder Bridge/Tremolo: TonePros System Controls: Vol / push pull Tone for coil splitting / 5-Way Fingerboard: Rosewood Frets: 22 Medium Hardware: Chrome Inlays: Dots Machine Heads: Grover Neck Joint: Bolt-On Neck Material: Maple Pickups: Duncan Designed MH-102 I've thought about buying another bass VI for years. I was perusing ebay and found this one for a pretty reasonable price, so of course I bought it. Aesthetics: I really like the look of the hellcat and I like the headstock they use with it (same as on their e-1 models iirc). The black paint and chrome hardware look really good in person. The previous owner must have babied this thing or barely used it because there's barely any buckle rash on the back/no dings on it. Feel/Sound: The frets are seated properly, the guitar is set up well so there's no fret buzz or too high of action. The guitar holds its tuning relatively well given that it's tuned to an octave below Drop D ( it can go lower but I find myself having a harder time hearing that unless I run it through a darkglass b7 profile on my kemper). The pickups are nice and mellow, but with the right amount of drive/boosting and the coil split they can get a really punchy bass sound. I'll throw up some darkglass clips later, but for now here's a video of how it sounds through my boogie f30, with the precision drive in front. Final verdict: The build quality is really great on this guitar and it's a fun thing to have on hand, since I can pretend to play bass every now and again without having to buy a "real bass"
