Well, this beautiful bass raked in £315. I'm not sure on the value of these instruments but if I had the money I would have seriously thought about it, is it worth it?

i got the one before it and fixed it up, it is a quality bass with a great range of sounds, plays very well too
the best bass I've play by a long shot £315 is out of my price range but worth it IMHO

More space when you move around. The stage becomes suddenly larger.

You don't end up running into the Hi Hat or some other drum parts.
Or you always wipe parts of the setup of your keyboarder down to the ground.

there is advantages on 3 counts that i have found
1. better balance, the bass sits better on the strap with no dip of the headstock, the super headless is a heavy beast though
2. the strings are not wound around a post but are just pulled to tension meaning that you have better tuning stability imho
3. very 80's look which is all the rage now Smile

i have didn't like the idea of a headless until about 17 years ago i played a status grafite bass and had my opinion changed some what. the super headless turned my head and reminded me of the time with the status

Makes sense, get a headless so you can avoid the other guys equipment?
