- Manufactured in a country where the quality control did not exist at the time.
I suspected a bit Asian.
-A pack of frets I transferred from ... would stay again.
- Two microphones inevitably think of doing this horrible American brand: a Pibasse and Vasebasse. All liability of course!
- Bridge steel imitation gold vintage Fender
- 2 volumes and a tone
- Wood handle real tree rather long and rather narrow, flat on top unlike the pickaxe handle.
Exemplary finish: Tappe to oeuil, black veined white pickguard Gold hardware and perloid way. The lifts are Rudy Manter open to the winds.
I put 2 / 10 BECAUSE IT has had at least the merit to introduce me to the bass. It's a feat it has not disgusted me.
YES! incredible but true the handle is nice.
Since I turned the frets is even better.
Access to typical acute fenderien: bof
Vintage ergonomics: solid, big, heavy and uncomfortable.
Uh, on the other hand get a good sound, no. This gives a sound when it is connected, obviously. But to say that it is good ... Not be fooled, it sounds not and is not due to the quality of chipboard which it is made. These are the microphones that are plastic could not be more wrong. It's been Bzzzzzzzz, poc, brrrrrrrr ... but never one's drinking.
2 / 10: 1 point for quality and a point because I'm sentimental.
It is not suitable at all for my style of music. I have no need of a cake server like that.
I played a long time on Park GB15 was going perfectly for cheap.
There, I no longer get because its electronics are in tatters. But défrettée and dry, it sounds pretty good, which is unexpected!
The lens, fat and all that you miss, it did not sound at all at first.
2 / 10 parcequ'elle me is the basis for fun at the fretless.
I have over 10 years.
It's a nice bass. Yes, she is quite pretty. But it is a dung over. It's beautiful, it sounds not, it costs nothing. Brief a copy of Fender's all the opposite.
I have not tried too many things at the time. I began and there was it in this price range. And it seems that it's better than Jim Harley ... arf.
I remember the bass amp + addtion was about 2000 bales of the time.
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Um, bah non. Now I have a little bottle, I was offered a Tobias. And the bass luthier is in progress. James then it became my martyr Spirit: I défrette I customization and if I find the pink wig, I'm a first-rate Jacky Tunning, LED with color and everything!
Overall Rating: 2 and is very generous.

This date low of 80-90 years and I believe was manufactured in Korea, 21 round boxes and key mapple precision micro hand side handle JB bridge (a note that it has a position near the bridge 75 jb cf promoting the definition and the attack of the sheet metal bent notes.Chevalet Style Fender very good, like all the gold hardware. A micro volume and overall tone.
Only moot point that the body displays a table and seat in Swamp ash by a lovely purple sunburst and superimposed layers of wood (yes plywood). What makes me revise my opinion on the adequacy of a wood precious and selected for its qualities sonores.Car this bass has the sound.
Mapple very easy to handle satin polish that has the use and allows a very low action after an appropriate adjustment. access to acute Accuracy is a well known since the 50.L ergonomics pareil.Le weight average, 4kg such a rule of thumb, it does not itch of the nose, is comfortable sitting at stake and Mechanical gold are accurate, reliable and take very good agreement. The sound is amazing mics that do not pay mine deliver a sound very close to the sound of my jazz Nordstand SE with microphones for those who know (microphones has more than 200 euros a pair) with a vintage sound of the growl and bite . The micro precision only a powerful bass and a touch reminiscent of P57 reissue.
I'm posting this notice because I'm really amazed at the opportunities we can find this bass has a very good price with a sound for those who like passive basses worthy (very worthy) of the copied model. Also the config Hot Rod flirts closely with the Jazz Bass which gives it a versatility ahurissante.Une Sadowsky DI sandwiched between low and amp colors the sound and makes it worthy of an active mind-blowing and makes sounds like Marcus Miller.Pas bad for a product in this range.
We must of course spend some time setting and timing of the handle, take the time to set the intonation, as with any self-respecting bass.
So, blues, jazz, rock (anything using JB and Precision) reggae (bass hummmm). I play several types of amp (Ampeg, SWR, Roland, Hartke). I think the tone knob does not be opened fully, I did not look, I think that eventually I 'put a 250k it is already happening and I would see the value of the capacitor. That said it is very well manageable like that and just find the right setting. (which depends on the micro and must be corrected in case of serious rocking aigu.Micro bridge over a little split core was jaco sound good singing (limit his fretless). Finally I have all I need for a standard use.
This is my third coffee of the brand. I have two now, and I am very impressed with the grain of the instrument, the icing on the cake on the youngest, the handle is made of flamed maple and is a treat to watch her run mimine dessus.J 'had a a priori about the plywood and I actually my first model equipped with an ash body massif.J 'have the opportunity to compare both my faith and the difference is imperceptible. (A meditation). J' I tried on many other models before those below. I have a bunch of basses with high end models. And frankly, as they say, it does. On the other hand it is very nice to "refocus" on the possibilities of instruments standard.Attention low cost is not necessarily synonymous with low-end and that is why I take the time to talk because I the impression that someone who starts is not able to judge objectively the intrinsic qualities of the low and tends to be dazzled by hooks of marketing brands. I played on bass with less brand character that dernière.Avec 2 I think it is enough for now, but at the price or they trove, if I see another move that does not mean I will not let me try.
