Manufacturing England, that I have is a model of manufacturing série.Année indeterminate.
Ash body, maple neck 24cases 3 parts and rosewood fingerboard (see its beauty I wonder if it's not Indian Rosewood), zero fret and truss rod reinforced carbon Bolt 4points.
String spacing wide enough, more than a Musicman or Warwick.
Channel 5ie quite round to the box, which flattens out from there to become a true freeway access to acute.
Hyperactive two microphones, a potentiometer for balance between the two pickups, one volume, a knob of boost / cut bass and one for Status aigus.Préampli S1.
Bridge Status, with bridges to the yarn Taperwound (soul of the rope "naked" based directly on each bridge, exeptée the G string).

UTILIZATION

Touche very flat, pleasant and hyper rapide.Le processing key makes it very pleasant, and the frets between ca ca slips effortlessly, even on strings rinsed.
Very well balanced, stays perfectly stable, two belt clips can easily find its home.
Low vacuum, the sensations are enormous, due to the ash that enhances the treble.
I'll just ask me a rest for the thumb between the two microphones.

SOUNDS

It is capable of anything, the sound of the neck pickup is very powerful and "retained" definition impeccable.Le bridge pickup is the same, but its position improves high médiums.La balance between the two is ca ... growl, rich everywhere, always staying one seeks contrôlable.Pourvu settings on a good amp, it can do everything.
I played on a Bass POD XT Live + sound LEM, and its not easy to find once tamed son.Une on these frequencies, it is intuitive to find the setting on a adéquat.Testée Ampeg combo, it was magical ...
The slap, its made in the treble is enormous.
We play in slapper on the frets (great harmonics), the finger at the junction of handle / body in the middle or at the bridge, the sound is very, very different, I have rarely seen that a range is basse.Chaque accessible.

OVERALL OPINION

I have only been 4 days, I have not tried other basses before this one but I remember quite well a Warwick Streamer 5, which rapporche of Status.
The more, the perfect finish and polish the body beautiful, almost no scratches despite his age, and does not stick!
The bad thing is the quality potentiometers mounted with a plastic rod, I think it made a low limit for main.Je will change all that.

€ 580 Used, unbeatable price for what it is, as long as you want to stand the great standards.Après must find one ...:)
I do it again this choice without hésiter.Je meaning it will stay with me long, long time.

If you see a jump on it!
