Jack V is the custom in real Jack the bass Custom V. (Mine pictured)
This is an active 5-string bass, headless (bridge Steinberg), made from a single block, with 24 frets.
It possde two microphones Hohner Select / EMG with each volume. A small switch can trigger the preamp. A big knob two levels for the determination of the bass and treble
A small LED lights when the preamp is on.
The handle is a bit pais (trs round) which makes it a little harder to play. The jouabilit remains easy enough for big hands (not recommended for small hands).
Its weight is relatively high it must be strong enough to hold more than 2 hours (depending on the concert). Yet it is a very well balanced bass.
The low possde 2 SETTING THE webbing: a top and bottom making it a versatile. It is very comfortable and enjoyable to play.
The double rope Systm balls for headless gnial is simply: you change string in record time but the strings are very hard to find (I have to order them and I make the joy of my shop Music)
Trs is versatile: it is easily obtained a good sound for jazz and round with some of the rglages pramp it can be devilishly hard slapper.
The handle headless does not only have an equilibrated instrument but also to have a handle becoming one pice with the body. This gives a pariculier sustain the instrument. Let a vibrating cot Mex Fender Jazz Bass and you will understand (basically the bass Jack rsons twice as long).
You can feel the handle vibrate with the rest of the bass is pretty Tripp.
I bought the bass on a jack favorite (she's beautiful: red metal and numrote recess!) And because of his point of view, one senses immediately that one can do something. Only in Table hombre ... I wanted to find a second but unfortunately it can not be found and very rare so imagine the price .....
- Chres and the strings are sometimes difficult to find.
- The handle is big enough and round it more difficult to play
- Very rare and CHRE
- Sounds really
- Trs good balance
- Enjoyable to play
- Fun to watch as
Headless Steinberger bass way, with handle driver microphone configuration JazzBass typed with active electronics switchable (significant in case of failure of the stack). Channel
nice, thick enough (good grip). a bit narrow for the slap (but with classic 5-string) ...
Once properly adjusted the handle (must search the Internet for setting style easels Steinberger), it is comfortable, versatile and highly accurate.
Rather mild compared to a JazzBass example, which is a big plus, especially for the long ball ... kind benefits
The agreement does not move.
If the bass is a little soft, but it helps out.
Tone typed JazzBass, especially in passive, with one side more modern assets. Its very good round with a growl in the attack if you hit a little. Slaps crystalline.
The microphones may lack a little fishing and personality and the electronics are a bit noisy (trend buzzer when you release the ropes) .. I am thinking of changing the pickups and electronics cons something more upscale ... it is expected to spend a good midrange an excellent instrument.
Sustain unbeatable (joystick driver).
I use it for years and is still my main bass. I find the look a bit dated 90 ', but it's still pretty darn good. The electronics are a little weak but the violin class is enough to justify an upgrade.
I think of the change, but I can not find better in a reasonable budget (I dream of a Sandberg these days, there obviously is changed class, against everything I've tried Fender Mexico and other pales beside my little Hohner).
In short, a super low and constant companion ... if you find an opportunity, please do.
