I have not had the curiosity to watch the original but I think it's somewhere in Asia.

A pleasant round the grip, the indentation at the bottom of left sleeve good access to acute frets, it is a bit heavy and the body a little too "thick" but we forgive him quickly.
I tried it on an Ashdown amp and I soon found sounds interesting.
The pickups are very typed differently, so it is quite versatile.
I almost tried everything: the finger on the bridge pickup as the neck pickup (I prefer the bridge pickup for that use), we get a good report including "dead" notes. So its quite a crystalline bridge pickup and neck pickup round and many dynampique! In slap, no problem either. I have not tried to pick (I do not like too ...).
I just tried it in stores but I was blown away (hence my comment ...).
I love the look: much more sober than the Phoenix models of the same brand with a personality that still going well.
I did not buy it because I am equipped with low level (I play on Vigier Passion).
I try regular bass for fun (in the store where you can!) And I planned a much higher price (only 399 euros without negotiating!), So excellent value for money.
A choice for those who want to have fun without putting 1,000 euros!
