You can slap and pop fairly on your bass? And the action is low?

I think that will be my next bass purchase. I've never played a six string before, but I do like a challenge.

I played that bass for a few months. It's high quality, but it's a heavy fucker.

I currently play a ESP LTD D-6 and have a friend that has the ESP LTD B-206 after playing mine. After playing the 6 strings at local stores, it was the best feel for me besides the Schecter Studio 6. The weight can be a little much to some, but I carry a tuba to college so this is light to me. I played the low-mid end Ibanez 6 strings and found the ones available locally to be a but buzzy (more than likely just a quick setup that needed adjustment) and not quite fitting my body size and shape (i.e. tall and round). I really like the neck thickness and shape, it is comfortable no matter where I am on it and the body is cut high enough to have easy access to upper frets. For the price that these basses can be had in the used market, I recommend them to many people who I talk to that are looking for a new one. Even though I am rather terrible at bass, many people comment on the sound it has, especially compared to my mid 90s Fender Jazz that I used before December.

TLDR: Good bass, find one and try it!

i've only recently began slapping and popping properly but the bass is doing me well for this. the action can be put low enough but the lower frets would be rattling a bit.

I have a 104. Eactly as the one you have pictured. Nice loud active bass. It came poorly set up but I fixed that. I really like the radius of the neck and it's well balanced IMO. She's a keeper.

Poorly set up I know my first bass came without ANY setup. LOL

What did she need to be fixed?

Mmmmm every bass has a rattling sound, is it too loud? I mean is it too annoying? I prefer low actions...

Finding it its really difficult here... Sad Schecter I like the Stillettos but too pricey for me! I would definatelly go for a new one... Just need opinions cause trying it its too difficult I dont think that in Athens there is ANYONE who plays a 104. LOL
