this bass looks killer and you can get any tone out it you want you can make growl like any other bass the only one i would compare it to would be warick or you can make the highs just sing. with the on board 3 band paremetic eq that has -15 to +15 db cut or boost you can go from a growling low end monster to high crisp like a tin can(which by the way dosen't sound to good but the point is you can get that sound easily if thats what you want extremely versitle I play in about 3 different bands and jam around with numerous bands and people aronud my area playing jam rock to e-mo to jazz to hard rock it doesn't matter this bass does it all

there is not anything I dislike about this bass the intonation is perfect but i still trying to find that perfect action hieght. but that can be easily adjusted by anyone

it is built like a rock solid alder body and a 3 piece maple/mahogany neck and a rosewood board the neck is straight as an arrow and the dual truss rod is superb

this is the best bass i've ever purchased and will probley never sell it if your looking for an awesome versetile 6 string you should check this out

This bass was made in Japan; mine dated back to 1996.
we have a wide enough shaft end well fret with 24 frets and access to acute is exemplary!
the body is ash, mine was sunburst color.
microphones are double storied windings simple format that changes in relation to all that there is on the market.
for adjustments was, pickup balance, master volume, bass, treble, and a button that serves midrange selector and is three positions.

UTILIZATION

this is a very wide handle and it takes time to get used to it, personally, over the years, here going better and better!

UTILIZATION

this is a very wide handle and it takes time to get used to it, personally, over the years, here going better and better!
there is a chamfer on the lower horn and it is nice when soloing jig in recent acute boxes!
ergonomics was well thought out on this instrument, a chamfer on the stomach, and another on the table at the curved neck pickup underneath for easy play slap.
the sound is good but soon, I'm tired ... see why below ...

SOUNDS

I personally changed the electronics and pickups on this bass, I found that rendering the rope B and C acute severe imbalance was compared to central strings (EADG) and then, once I turned electronics, I wired in passive pickups with original yamaha, what scam! electronics did not change anything! in fact, she just amplify the sound microphones simply!
so I turned the mics that I found unbalanced and electronic brought nothing at all!
I bought 2 G6 bartolini the same format as those installed on this bass and aguilar OBP3 and the result was unparalleled, and finally I was able to have a balanced sound across all strings and I finally had the opportunity to have the same medium as its pastoral besides all the possibilities that you can have to play rock or jazz or funk!

OVERALL OPINION

I sold it in 2011 and I now regret ...
This is an excellent 6 strings very well thought at the time, solid and reliable.
I tried many instruments; look at my other reviews on my profile.
what I loved the price I bought auquelle, chamfers that make a difference with other low three times more expensive color sunburst, shrinking the width of the handle, access to acute the vacuum resonance.
I did not like; electronics that does nothing, changing mics because they are unbalanced weight.
I find that this tariff occasion, worth!
the price / quality ratio is excellent, it is exemplary!
with the experience I want to see other bass a bit more expensive compared to the quality ...

SOUNDS

I am a fan of Patitucci, the sound is clean soft, very crystalline and at the same time you can have a well roots and fat, there is the presence of hot and good groovy, microphones out a sound worthy of a humbucker, there's the potato, the dimension are also very specific this is a kind of Jazz expanded with a rating that takes good rope and DO IF I did not see that on of another bass apart from the beautiful islands ... Sanox after it is double-edged those who want to custom it may be difficult or impossible if I mostly used the registry Jazz / funk fusion groove ... it is perfect in this role after for rock / blues that is not what I would use first ...

OVERALL OPINION

occase in less than € 1,000 is a great deal, but beware sizes are still impressive and must adapt that requires effort especially if you come from the world ... Ibanez According to those who want a groove instrument for the slap on a 6 string, this is the good stuff you can take it without hesitation

The electronic is clean and powerful: volume, balance microphones, bass, treble and slecteur 3 positions to boost mdiums. The only question that keeps running: is it useful to have as many rglages?

At finish, nothing wrong.

One regret, by the impossibility to disable the inter Systm active (you have to make corrections ZrO severe and acute mdiums).

At finish, nothing wrong.

UTILIZATION

For its use, it is now seven years since I played and I must say that we made it trs well if you like 6 strings.

The balance between the handle and the body is good compared to the neck-MODEL. Its weight is his weak point because it is not ngligeable. We must therefore have a good strap and good shoulders ...

The handle is flat enough to leave a comfortable game (dtail important given the width of the handle).

The opening of the body can reach easily the top of the handle which is not a low ngligeable directs soloists (leaving room for the string of Do ...)

The electronic SETTING THE are simple, effective and prcis, which makes it convenient.

on the other hand, like many active basses, I suppose, do not abuse the amount of active amplification, otherwise use regularly, the battery does not last long ...

But use regularly, the battery makes me within 6 months, which is reasonable trs.

SOUNDS

To return to the sound produced by the electronics, when I bought it I thought all rglages offered me a wide range of sounds, but I realize now I am almost all the time on the same rglages giving his simple and effective (near-neutral corrections). Better to have a good rglage on his amp ...

Personally, I know that it adapts well to various musical styles as it gets its time round but also prcis with good momentum for a 6 strings (related to the dynamics phnomne dgressive known for more than 4 bass strings).

I know I like to pair it with a Octaver (EBS) for improvisations, a wha-wha (CryBaby) to make casseroles and possibly a small chorus that is classic for solo (Boss CH-1).

In amp, I use a HH Bass Machine 250W with a good place about 20 years leaving over the roundness of sound that the claret. Otherwise, I direct the branch in which the table rvle not bad and even better with an amp in the style of the day (like last Ampeg / SWR and David Eden, for example).

OVERALL OPINION

So I use it for 7 years now, and I've never had a problem with that: good times and big sound.

The only BMOL CHARACTERISTICS his is the jack is in the lower Intgr which does not contact the top and limits the type of jacks connect it (no sew jacks for example). So I recommend a good cord to go with Jack Jack (with crown on the base to make good contact).

His report qualitprix is ​​reasonable given its global CHARACTERISTICS especially since it comes with its silent flight (which completely push the shape of the body) which is a good addition.

When making my investment, I tried several instruments including bass luti (in the same price range) and trs amazement, I was on the claret MODEL because of its did all its appeal (thanks to single-coil pickups instead of humbuckers on other models which loses some of The definition of sound).

If I had to change low today, I think I would do this choice.
