1988 active low
produced in japan
2 single-type microphones "jazz bass" washburn
2 volume, 1 Tone.
The tonality is a push / pull which allows a low run in "active" mode or "passive". (Passive mode is convenient, it works even without batteries)
the black point when the knob is enfonc one is active mode. during storage in the case and / or transport, bass begins in active mode and the battery is empty for nothing ...
Very thin neck, long scale, very pleasant to play.
the access to acute is facilitated by the junction sleeve body back
the weight is not too consquent has allows you to play without nab lumbago.
the sound is okay, but in passive mode, it's a little too flat for me.
I play mostly rock with.
I have 2 ashdown amps:
to work at home without making my crazy neighbors, one after eight, which is good sound without
RPTES for a 300 Mag much interesting.
the sound is quite good, especially with the hot boost.
On the bridge pickup you can venture to do the slap.
I have for about 2 years.
For a bass that age, she super aged well, the sound is very nice and is very pleasant to play.
less is the pearly white body originally was vir to piss yellow vaguely paillet.
Pays a hundred euros on ebay, this is a great report quality / price.
I would do can be a choice, or I achterais a vantage avenger X77

DoWn's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Made in Japan (mine is 1988)
- Fixed bridge
- Handle end, pitch long enough with 22 frets reinforcement "Force ABT"
- 2 microphones "p-style washburn (active)
- Grover: Mechanical
- 2 Volume 1 Tone push-pull activating the electronics, a microphone slecteur 3 positions
Note: the electronic functions when the button is pushed tone. In Transit cover, so she starts her own way and wears down the battery. Damage
The neck is very thin and very pleasant but a bit long. CASC is very good for acute, facilitated by the joint body / neck Force ABT.
This bass is trslgre which is very pleasing to play RPET.
The sound is good, especially in active mode. passive mode is pretty flat.
I rock the main days (fingers and mdiator) has be pretty good. into the mic selectable acute, we can tackle the slap.
I play on a ashdown mag300 the combination is nice.
Me I have a weakness for the neck pickup in active mode, the microphone is a sharp little too aggressive for my taste. but does well in slap.
I do not like the sound in passive mode.
I've had it .. hmm 2 years, I test a few models before you buy.
I love its lightness handle very end, active pickups.
I like the color that has less fan of pearly white mat we pass a yellow ugly.
pay a hundred bucks on ebay, APRS a passage from the luthier, it is top top top
I would do without hesitating choice!
