Godin BG 4 String Bass

Godin BG-4 BassPublished on 11/23/03 at 15:00
I got the bass a two years ago but the price has most definatly changed by now... $700-1000 dollars Canadian I would guess. (EMG pick-ups)

OOOOH the feel of the bass is soooo nice. Very sexy look to it. Outstanding EMG pickups on the bass. Volume control, Pickup Selector and Bass/Treble knobs. The Bass/Treble is a two part knob, the larger is the bass and the smaller is the treble. Nice wood finish on the body and neck. No Pickgaurd. I personally dislike picguards in a bass.

The only problem is the whole pickguard issue. I dislike the pickguard but some may find it useful.

Beatiful maple finish that honestly sparcles. The sound is absolutely perfect with the EMG pickups.

This is the perfect bass. The only reason I would get a new one (instead of this one) is if I was looking for more than the 4 strings. So I am going for the BG-5.

IF YOU GET THIS BASS PUT GOOD STRINGS ON IT. Don't disgrace the godin by putting some crappy ones on it.

Containing a flat handle, which allows you to play with the thumb placed in a very stable or so with the palm. 10/10, I have never played a round as pleasant.

EMG electronics, "gas factory". It saturated when I played the low E on my Ampeg BA 115 (enclosure 15 ")., So I screwed micro max for the greatest possible distance strings. Done Once this detail, but happiness.

Versatile. the bridge pickup is perfect for slap against the neck pickup with a little soft, lack of attack. However, the knobs are responsive and pleasant to handle, I use all the time to change the selection of micro style.

Versatile. the bridge pickup is perfect for slap against the neck pickup with a little soft, lack of attack. However, the knobs are responsive and pleasant to handle, I use all the time to change the selection of micro style.

The lack of a mid EQ, but there (Bass / Treble) is well taff, I never touch my amp which is very useful on stage.

Distance adjustable ropes. Awesome 10/10

5th screw connection handle / body. The V that until the 19th box comfort is perfect. More acute, complex 8/10

Low light and well balanced. Design crazy missing my taste 7/10.

The strings are stretched, the bass is a bit physical. Beginners refrain, in this case opt for a more low CORT kind upscale (700-750 euros) easier to "draw" in the first place and very good. I bought 5 years of practice.

I do not give it in drop D, but since I do not I have very bad optimize my game on another more informed opinion on this item? it would be cool, I might say the m .... about it. I therefore vote WHITE

OVERALL OPINION

Low bought 900 euros + new flycase 6 years ago. The seller told me that the market value was 1800 euros but broke GODIN prices for defects promotion. Very hard to believe.


Still, for a low <1000 euros, according to me "can not test". I played onstage jazz, ska, hard rock, funk and reggae. Bluffing

Weighting because it is my second bass (first being the Cort Action beginner).
I saw that the pass fender for more on personality styles precise (JB for the middle-bottom kind Pasto, PB rock but nothing else).

Versatile, durable, value for money that borders on insolence.

I put 9/10 for the general cause of neck pickup, Big up to the neck with the flat made me ADDICT (admittedly it is also a whole).

I removed the preamp and effects that I had with my ibanez. I play on my ampeg Brut to really emphasize the more accurately the sound of the instrument. Notice therefore weight for lovers of all kinds of modulations.

If I have to change low, it would be to buy a fretless. I intend to keep it for life, a beautiful object, p .... sound. Long-term investment for an amateur doing the scene and playing several styles.

Voil well logtemps vouais I have great respect Godin, known for its quality instruments (and often expensive trs). Until, ho miracle, I found a new BG4 an affordable price trs (rolling stock ...).

To ensure optimum transmission of frquences throughout the bass, the neck and the central part of the bass are on Saddle Drive. It gives a great sustain particulirement.
It is in team 2 EMG active pickups (the new models are in Semour-Duncan), of a volume knob, with a balance and a rglage bass and treble. Book with a rigid fly.

UTILIZATION

THE FIRST ds grip, this low trust. Although balance, with a handle (my taste) perfect and strong, and easy one button and a form prcise particulirement tudie well, I fell in love after than 10 seconds. One thing, it is up with ropes a little too hard my taste (but that's my problem, I have that change).
Ca, c'tait before connecting ...

SOUNDS

The sound? How to tell? ENOOOOORME!
As I said, dj, excellent sustain. The electronic particulirement effective and rigidity of all let out long, pure harmonics, a large grain by attacking the bridge, and from jazz to heavy rock, to reggae and funk I do not russian take default. Couple my HK BassForce XXL (and effects), it is all the rage.
It sometimes lacks a rglage mdiums on, but I'm picky.

OVERALL OPINION

As mentioned in the introduction, I bought this bass enjoying a nice promo. I do not think I will have bought its current price, if only for a budget problem. That said, for the price of a JazzBass well made (about 1800), finishing dubious and inflated prices, you have the guitar polivalente trs, enjoyable play and watch.
We just give me a Schack (German luthier, round carbon look beautiful and noble species), my dilemma would be to know that I prfre ...
In conclusion, I think this bass is an excellent choice for demanding bass players who want a versatile and robust, even if it remains somewhat CHRE.

OVERALL OPINION

For 3 years.The most is the cleanliness of the signal and its polyvalence.Le least that it is not appropriate to a beginning bass player because it is very neutral, and must carve his sound ... it must know what you want, but it's the same problem for Godin guitars, unlike other brands, but more typically less versatile (fender, gibson). very good value for q / p. the choice I would do without hesitation because it is a perfect tool. For a pro bass player to be scrubbing at different styles of music.
