Made in England by the makers of Burns, is a passive bass with 2 big humbuckers. Its main feature is that the sound adjustment module is interchangeable: there are 8 different, very hard to find. I have the modules n1, 3 and 5 each with spcificits particulires (see site for dtails Shergold). Detail surprising: the bridge is plexiglass!

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, but beware: long scale! it's not for little hands. The bass is not too heavy but I find it stings a little nose, which the makers have corrected the Marathon model. The sound is fabulous: very warm and round, without losing the attack. As it is made by luthiers in love with their craft, they are instruments that age very well, if they have been maintained. Only the varnish, polyurethane, is craqule with age, gives a small ct vintage pretty cool.

SOUNDS

I play on my ampeg portabass with 1x12 "and 4x8" and it sounds perfect if you like the warm sound very 70's. Forget the slap or the neo-metal, this bass is not for ca. FYI Shergold was the official Mike Rutherford of Genesis 70-80 period '... With a fuzz or distortion it sounds standard. The modules allow a large variety of the trs, fat funky to jazzy mdium through the rock with a good attack, the possibilities are endless.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had four months and I gradually used in all parts of my two groups as it is warm and versatile. Warning: diificile instrument available today.
