This product changed my life

14.06.2016
The pickups are great. I'm happy with the electronics, though it may could be a little bit more comfortable, but when you get used to it - It's seems okay.

Also, the batteries could be placed more in a more comfortable way, because It may require some tools to take them out carefully ( not doing damage to the cables which connect the batteries).

Another minus - if one of the two batteries die - the whole active mode won't work, but the great Passive tone, the sound quality may save you in the middle of a gig.

I love that you can set your sound anytime and quick with the active mode. Be carefull, though, because of switching passive to active may be loud, because two batteries make a very strong and sensitive signal.

This bass will really give you ability to improve your technique. The distance between the strings will give you best quality for slapping patterns. I really like the pickup system, because you can get any sound you like, from heavy metal to jazz and fusion. The strings are Ok, but after 4 months of playing I'm going to change these to a DR Pure Blues for a brighter tone, because i play solo a lot. Of course, that 5th string is a beast, love to hit that one for sure, because It gets the tone and the sound.

For youth or children the bass may be heavy and not comfortable. I recommend this bass for advanced - almost professional bass players.

In my opinion - for a bass like this, the price is really small. Really glad that I have this bass and have the ability to improve to a professional level.

If you want to spend less than 1000 euro...or pounds then buy this bass. This is my third one so I think I got a 3 for one offer as the quality of the instrument is certainly as good as the basses I have costing 1000 and over.

The maple fret board versions are bright and crisp, this one has a darker more mellow tone, more like a vintage jazz, especially in passive mode. I love the look of the maple however much prefer the tone of the rosewood. I guess it is down to taste.
Only small gripe is the stacked control knobs are a bit weird looking (IMHO) so I changed them to lower profile dual concentric chrome knobs. Didn't do it on this one as the white body with black knobs looks cool
The factory set up was a bit off my taste and I cut the depth of the nut to a lower level however I usually do this on all my basses.
Tone is killer and very versatile, mid sweep works great and the bass boost / cut is a real room shaker!
I have already placed a back order for the new M7 as I think it will give the w*wick double buck a run for its money and again considerably less than a third of the price
