A better bass is the best teacher you're ever gonna get.

 The J4 Numero Uno and J4 Eldorado are my own two MüB, custom-fit to my playing style which spans from finger style to classical guitar arpeggios plus some slap tweaks of my own. Tone-wise, I like a lot of snap and growl with a P-bass kind of bottom thrown into the mix. Action is very low cuz I like to get carried away.

The 90% Rule.

The neck is by far the single most important part of a bass. Probably 90% of a bassist's life is spent playing on and dealing with it one way or another. Pretty amazing when you think of it. Which is why each MüB neck profile is done by hand and feel. What does it matter that a neck is right if it doesn't feel right?
