Like the rest of the BTB series, this thing is heavy. At 7 Kg, this bass is a back breaker, which begs to be played sitting down. If you're stubborn like me and want to play standing, you'll need a thick strap.

As with the rest of the BTB series, this has more in common than in difference. Besides the rosewood face and the attached horn, this more or less spec for spec like the current models. Whether the extra money is worth it is hard to say - I personally like the freakish asymmetry, but if you're looking for a more conventional looking bass, the BTB676 is probably your bass (and maybe a few oz lighter)

As for the sound, I can compare it against the ever popular Ibanez SR505. Going from a 34" bolt on to a 35" through neck gives a noticeably stronger fundamental. The SR505 has a bit more bite and snap, but the BTB has much more low end power, especially on the B string. Since both Basses have bartolini pickups, I think we can safely conclude that it's the rest of the bass affecting the sound.

I was a little bit worried since I visited a store that had to send their only one back due to neck twist issues, but I don't seem to have any issue. There is a tiny bit more relief in the low b side of the neck than in the high C side, but that seems to work in my favor.

There are small things that do set this a class below something truly boutique. For example, there are some small blemishes on the wood where apparently someone marked it with a marker, but didn't sand deep enough to take it off. Also, someone forgot to polish the wood on the 12 and 16th fret, as they still have some sort of residue which I'll just have to take off with steel wool next time i change the strings. As for the strings, the don't actually seem to be elixers as advertised, but I don't mind, since I usually avoid those anyway.

In conclusion, I like this bass. It's a back breaker, but otherwise sits or hangs comfortably.

Just a word of warning - this bass screams "I'm one of those douchey bass players." So do yourself a favor and don't become the stereotype. For example, you should avoid the following with this bass:
Playing with a pick
Wearing a turtleneck
Youtubing yourself playing Bach
sweeping arpeggios.

Just remember that with great power comes great responsibility and stay in the pocket.
