A bass almost high-end for 148!

28.02.2017
I put 4 stars, but it deserves almost 5! I only wanted to mark the difference with some basses (very) high-end, which still carry a hair! ...
Playing usually on JB 1973, JB fretless and Ibanez SR 500, I needed a 5 strings.
The opinions on this instrument being good, I thought not to run a big risk at this price.
Delivered well packed and without deterioration, this bass surprising by its flattering aspect: varnish of the handle less light than it seems, lacquer body very beautiful, mechanical (protected by plastic film), knobs, easels beautiful bill, -corps very correct.
The icing on the cake: it comes with two Allen keys, one for the truss-rod, one for the easels (it's not very expensive, but it's always fun).
The handle is in any case well adjusted, correctness and action, and quite straight: I did not have to touch the truss-rod.
Only small flat: the frets whose ends hang a little. But it is the case of a few lime shots (be careful not to damage the key!).
Connected directly to my console and judged by the headphones, the bass sounds very good, both passive and active. Same on my "small" Hartke 100 W amp. As another customer said, the original strings are not bad at all: clear and good sustain (maybe there are different mounts and am I Fallen on a good?), To the point that I did not, for the moment, considered useful to climb the d 'Addario I had planned.
In short, a very good purchase, which I highly recommend!
