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.
