Vox Custom BassPublished on 01/04/08 at 12:33
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
4 string electric bass
This bass was produced for the brand by the Japanese plant VOX MATSUMOKU between 1982 and 1985.
It would be known as "Model 3002"
Matsumoku realized also low enough likeness on behalf of other brands like Ibanez and Vantage. They also have a "family resemblance" (in neck, brass fittings, excessive weight and Di Marzio pickups)
More details:

24 frets
String through body, brass easel, brass nut, sleeve type conducting liner jazz bass
A micro PB, a JB, a flight, a tone, a toggle, and split a very original (phase out of phase, and a particular mode: The E and the PB, Re and So, the JB!)...…

24 frets
String through body, brass easel, brass nut, sleeve type conducting liner jazz bass
A micro PB, a JB, a flight, a tone, a toggle, and split a very original (phase out of phase, and a particular mode: The E and the PB, Re and So, the JB!)
Apparently, the pickups are Di Marzio series HOT

UTILIZATION

Channel: a treat, JB style, but a little thicker.
A small flaw: He seems a little "flexible", and if I get angry too, accuracy suffers a bit.
Acute attacks: as is a neck-through, no heel stick
Enormous weight, it is 5kg .. Me that bother me, but when someone tries, it makes me in 30 seconds ...
A huge body, it is very difficult to find a flight case to its size ...
I had to build a custom.
For sound, I wanted a low approaching that of Duff Mc Kagan, Well that's what I was looking for.

SOUNDS

I play:
- In the fingers with the microphone PB
- In the pick with the PB + JB
I never use the flight or the tone, I never touch the dial phases. But otherwise, she can do a lot of things.
A small resonance in the high-mids impossible to erase that might offend some

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, it's the bass I was looking for: Vintage, original, professional quality without a jewel that we dare not go out and microphone config I wanted. I bought it (with a little advance) for my 30th birthday in October 2004 and it will be fine at least until I was 40 (and maybe more)
Falling more in love with this instrument, I have a second copy since February 2007.

On my website, I created two pages together everything I know about this mysterious bass. I get occasional pictures and opinions, and I compile. Visit:

Argus August 2009:
Obviously much I love this instrument.

<div> However, given his lack of notoriety, even if it is an instrument of good quality, the rating is not very high. The latest transactions on eBay are around € 350 for instruments in fair condition. Whether he has been changes. </div>

<div>
It is possible to rate a little more for an instrument in new condition and accompanied by the original package. But even so, a rigorous new Vox with case has long been on Ebay Switzerland € 650 without finding a buyer. </div>

<div>
It is possible that it changes over time, or all at once a famous bass player starts to play the instrument, but for now the odds are in those waters. </div>
