the neck of the bass is super fast. if you have small hands like mine you will definitely appreciate the string space, great for playing chords. playing with a pick is a treat and also very comfortable for fingerstyle and tapping. might prove to be a little challenging to slap and pop at first but with a little practice people with larger hands will eventually get used to it. pickups, hardware, tuning pegs, bridge, body and tones of the guitar are quite impressive.
