Hi all.
One year I was looking for this low opportunity. Having briefly had 5 strings and amazed by its beauty and quality, I searched endlessly until the site to see in a small Irish ads via Google ... and fortunately, the seller m 'trusted ...
In a very acceptable cosmetic condition, pretty close to the new ... I immediately entrusted to my luthier after all disassembled for inspection.
A wire was désoudé .. making virtually ineffective tone, and with a shy volume.

However, back .... and for 20 euros .. lol satisfaction is total.

To start, cutting this bass is exceptional.
Is curved on the table.
It is not very heavy in relation to its size as it is quite impressive.
The woods are all quality.
The bridge in two parts is very effective.
Head hints wood grain under the varnish, and the slight sparkle of the table is beautiful under the lights ...
The tuners are very reliable. These are not the oil baths, since I have also removed the .. I was surprised, but they do the job very well, since the bass is never out of tune!
The pickups are very well made, solid enough, and very heavy.
The knobs are formidable quality in my luthier.
So there is no a priori reason to distrust the value ...
I find the build quality further appointment with my Fender US ... (JB, PB and Jaguar)
It is for Chapter manufacturing.

Now connected, one might be disappointed, certainly not ben.
PB, Push mode, the sound is round at will despite the small noticeable shine new ropes.
The notes are very precise.
In JB mode, pull mode, the sound is brighter ... and highlights the lapping which is rather easy on this bass, which surprised me ...
So we are not at all in the Fender sound is more guts ... more goes into it ...
C'set an alternative to endless Fender, who wants the Rock with a look and sound to it ...


I had read that the push pull PBass / JBass was ineffective ...
Again, this is bullshit ... It is effective, but the guys before posting opinions on the stuff, you care about your amplification, because when you do not have a good amp .. . we do not perceive the actual sound of his bass ...


In summary, this bass is REAL-MENT a very good bass, but it requires sending .. that's the Rock ... Besides Duesenberg very well defined its range since I've rotes:
The Violin bass for sweet melodies.
The Starplayer Bass, goes everywhere, very soft to play .. really versatile, and can send the wood above a pick with the neck pickup ...
And so the D-Bass, scheduled for rock consigning, finger and a pick .. two, no problem ....
I use it for cover of Pop and Rock, frankly it happens everywhere, with preference for well-paced songs ...

Anyway, I have a clear preference for Duesenberg stuff ... (I'm Six) ... whatever the instrument is necessarily quality. The value price is QUITE the appointment since playing in the big leagues in terms of manufacturing quality. For sound is necessarily a matter of taste, but one thing is for sure, nothing is approximate with Duesenberg! I am conquered? and even to the guitar pedals ...

These are the kitties, if you could enlighten you in your quest for the Holy Grail Bassistique (or guitar)
