     A really wonderful handmade gem from California Builder Michael Dolan. This bass is not just absolutely beautifully made, it also has a very unique, amazing sound! The combination of the 33 inch scale, electronics, woods, and construction creates a incredibly punchy, strong tone with a very unique flavor that I havent heard before - it makes one want to hear more, it's addictive! The bass also playes super easily and is just pure pleasure to spend time with, easily one of the best sounding 5 strings we've seen.
