I'd like to get some feedback from bass players about the Kona bass. I've read good comments from uke players, but I'd like to know how flexible bass players feel it is compared to an electric upright/double bass like the Stagg. Or an EUB like the Dean Pace. Or even a regular electric or electric/acoustic bass.
Can it be strung differently (say EAD)? How's the sound - deep, punchy? Sound at all like an upright bass?

I would concur with Retro. The Walkingbass is really easy to learn if you are not already used to "standard" tuning. It's strengths are its warm tone, light weight, and eye catching design. If you already are entrenched in standard bass tuning, get yourself something standard.
