I had a Squier Bronco bass for home recording. It was one of Hello Kitty Batz Maru basses. I also have the Kitty guitar - trying to pass that one along as well. I went to play an Ibanez full scale bass that was $199 at GC and I knew it wouldn’t work for an old guitar player (me). The full scale felt so heavy and the big reaches were difficult. I picked up a Mikro and I loved it. The pickups are very loud compared to the Bronco. When I play the jazz pickup only with tone rolled back I get that old school jazz sound that feels like the bass is saying “furr - furr furr furr”. The scale is 28.6” scale and the bass fits in a Fender guitar bag very well. Scale - here it is next to an 83 Roadstar. It’s comfy for a guitar player. I read that there are a couple of other Mikro fans here. That’s cool. I’m going to have a lot of fun with this. Sounds so big and punchy!
