  1. 1880hz peak frecquency on the MusicMan o.O? so… no highs, just high mids? Guess some people might like it… Don’t think I’m one of them :P

  2. Since they’re called man-of-war does that mean I would have to quit being a real bass player and start using a pick?

  3. The name Man of War and passive should not go together. I hate em already.
