- Neck: Bolt-on 3 piece laminate hard maple, Rosewood fingerboard 25frets
- Electronics: PCB: TB-05B, Master volume, pickup balance, treble: +18 dB/-6dB at 5.5kHz
Bass: +16 dB/-6dB at 90Hz

The highlight of this bass is its electronics (very simple to use but difficult to explain):
- Balance P / J and scale magnetic / piezo volume pot on the same concentric
- Magnetic and piezo serious on the same concentric knob
- Piezo and magnetic highs on the same concentric knob
Mine was manufactured beginning year 90.
The neck is very thin, very easy to play. 25 squares. Very precisely controlled by its former owner, this bass is a copy accuracy even after the 15th chord.
Very good ergonomics, very light low.
Access to acute very easy.
It quickly gets very good sound, once we have grasped the way the electronics work.
This low noise level has an almost perfect balance, deep bass, clear highs.
This is the Swiss Army knife par excellence, able to shine in both registers metal, rock, jazz and funk that. Especially with electronics, which allows virtually all possibilities.
I use it with an Orange AD200 MK3 + OBC115 baffle, as well as DI's very defined, very precise.
The particularity of this bass is the electronic parts:
- Knob pickup balance between micro and micro Precision Jazz
- Knob pickup balance between magnetic pickups (above) and piezo.
- Bass and Treble for each microphone
The piezo, pushed very hard, brings more of a natural distortion of replacing a very good overdrive pedal.
I had talked about the incredible quality of the instrument of that mark, rare in our region because of the absence of actual dealers ... Note that the U.S. forums are ecstatic about this model .. after a few months use, I understand better why.
A purchase with your eyes closed ...
