Robert98, 15.05.2013
I had one of these as a teenager back in the early sixties and have always thought about buying or making another. There were very mixed reviews about this model at various places on the internet but being a luthier myself I thought that if it did have any minor issues I could easily sort them out. I must say the finish is stunning, I just don't know how a bass with a solid spruce top and flame maple back and sides can be made for this price.

Well there was a dry joint on the switch assembly which took about five minutes to fix. I have fitted flat wound strings, which is more or less essential if you want that 60's Beatle bass sound and now I have to say that I actually prefer the sound of this bass to that of the one I had all those years ago.

Update; two years on and I'm still totally happy with this bass. I play guitar mainly but take every opportunity I can to play bass just so I can play this one :)

Whether you feel its time to do some Beatles licks of just get into a different feel and vibe, this is a good bass to buy. Given the pickups and construction it does sound as you would expect - 60s beat all the way! I like the fact that as it is a short scale you get strings little more bendy than a longscale so you can add a little bend to those notes if you like the blues.

as a left handed fan of The Beatles, I knew this was the bass I needed. extremely light and versatile, goes from 60's stuff to punk amazingly. Lovely fast neck. The jack input has fallen out once and gets quite loose and i have a few difficulties downtuning. Other than that, AMAZING bass.

Love the spruce top on this one, 'though it's most probably a laminate of some sort. I have owned violin basses from Rogue and Rondo Music and this one feels like a better made instrument for sure.

If you caught the shorty scale bug and like the woody tone of these hollow body instruments, by all means, succumb to the little beast with abandon. :o)
