I bought this after I saw Mal of Cabaret Voltaire playing one, and I saw this in a used music store locally.
I liked the sound, although I never tried another style of bass, so really can't compare. It was poorly balanced though, as the body was hollow and the neck solid, so when I let it go, the body would swing up and whack me in the face! Cheap, but it got the job done!
I used this for all of the bass in Third Door From The Left and we be echo until it was (presumably) sold around 1989.
