This is my new set up SWR 900, 4x10 Goliath III and a 1x18 Big Ben at the Bottom.

To the left is my Europa with a bubinga top that I've owned since 97, and the one in the left is my newest addition to my bass guitar family, a 32 scale Mark King with gold hardware, coco bolo top, abalone inlays, and a continuous wood backplate.

One of the things that stood out to me was the size of the bass, there is barely enough room in my Ford Escape to fit it in sideways, the next was the weight of the instrument, it is noticeably heavier than my Europa. It plays really nice and feels really solid and tight and you really feel the tone with the heavier coco bolo wood and bigger body. I really liked the stinger body style so the wood along with the stinger tail makes for a really sexy bass ( my opinion)

I'm very happy with it and worth every penny I spent on it.

Four 10s? Nice guitar rig. Four 10s + one 18? Oh yeah! Four 10s + one 18 + two Alembics? Now that's bass! Looking good (and no doubt sounding better).
