A professional quality Precision that won't break the bank, or your back.
Arlo, 07.11.2019
This bass is a work of art. In vintage blonde it reminds me of Werthers Originals sweets. The gold pickguard is very cool.
Out of the box it barely needed any setting up. I put on some medium La Bella flatwounds. The truss rod needed half a turn which is done via a crosshead screw slot at the base of the neck. This was relatively easy. I secured the strings with a capo of the first fret, slackened the strings, loosened the screws of the back of the neck and was able to access the truss rod without taking the neck off fully. I then put the action half a turn higher on all the strings and was ready to go. The bridge has standard flathead screw slots which again makes it easier than searching for the correct size allen key!
For a precision it is relatively light, having an ash body, so I could happy play this on stage for 2 plus hours without backache. The neck is a C shape so quite easy to play.
I plugged in to my Ampeg Portaflex and the sound was classic P-bass: Roger Waters with the tone fully up, Donald Duck Dunn at 2/3, James Jamerson at 1/3.
I cannot tell the difference between this high end Mexican made bass and a more expensive American one. In the past when I have bought Mexican I have upgraded the bridge, tuners and pickups. However the hardware and electronics on this bass are of top quality.
If you want a professional quality bass you can tour with for less than £1000 then this is recommended without hesitation.
