The violin is quite correct ... In this price range (around 500euros).
The varnish a bit fragile, the correct finish.
Nevertheless, the seymour duncan active ingredient is a pledge of quality, the controls are large and contribute to the versatile instrument. However, 20 boxes is a bit short ...
Small flat on the mechanics as well. Despite the fact that it is oil baths. I have a machine that moves, it reacts slowly enough so it makes it easier to finesse, but do not agree very well. Likely to change in the near future.
The neck is quite thin, soft, curved blade, very nice in a vintage spirit. Thanks to the system bridge "at the Gibson" you can adjust the height of each string easily and readily obtained a low action. Truss rod is accessed by the head of the instrument is more convenient than Fender!
The instrument was designed as "neo-vintage" and one feels, only 20 then, but access to acute perfect, thank you the single cut.
The instrument is relatively light (compared to my Fender Jaguar bass for example). A bit bulky (1 / 4 of body forces), the shape is ergonomic enough despite the absence of chamfers and cut the heel is good. It is comfortable.
The pavement type Musicman, slice it, the vintage character of the violin. In good humbucker active he has a good potato and a rather modern. But the EQ controls are doing their job and can play both rock / metal / trip-hop, boosting, and compressing with the amp / preamp ad hoc jazz or pop by cutting a few acute and more serious and enjoying the acoustic character (quite present in the sound) of the violin, and this, as with nets nets dishes that round.
I mainly play with pop. Mixing vintage / modern and versatility it offers suits me completely. We find both a side to McCartney Hofner bass, just as those with a more modern like the musicman.
Trip hop in the humbucker is impeccable.
The only area which is closed I think it's anything that requires a modern sound Funk / Slap and whatnot.
"I've had a few weeks, I had to buy emergency and I could find a model expo in 400euros. I immediately fell.
The side-archtop I really like the look is really hell, the handle is a delight, and the active pickups can still have a snoring sound, now with real serious and violin with the central beam system offers a true and sustain an attack near a solid body.
"I have tried some other models, despite tight supply in this product line. level quality-price is the best I think.
-As I said, it was very impulsive. I bought it in an emergency, but I feel for not having made a mistake at all. I thought by getting the resell my other bass part for repair but I think it will be very hard.
I do not particularly regret having "given a chance" on a box misunderstood, that does not enjoy a reputation for flashy (Samick), but which has brought together a proper violin to a good finish with electronics to create a quality product atypical, between two worlds, but endearing, beautiful, functional and above all reliable.
