Over all happy with product
Bassaþór, 17.01.2020
Great sound and playability, only thing I can complain about was that the B string was totally dead, and the setup of the G string was slightly offset (to much space between D and G string), so that when playing it tended to roll of the fingerboard. It was an easy fix and i let Thomann know about the B string, let's see if they will make up for that :-)

Printed tortoise pickguard :(
Ata Tuna, 15.05.2020
Such a great bass. Exquisite neck finish and playability yet the moment you realize that the pickguard is printed and not genuine tortoise is truly disappointing for a bass around 1400 pounds. I'm not happy with the pickguard at all.

One for a lifetime!
Miss SandyBerg, 31.12.2020
Ein Traumbass.
Der California spielt sich wie von selbst, Hals und Bünde sind makellos verarbeitet, ausgewogen ohne dead-spots in allen Lagen.
Von klassischen F*****-Sounds zu fett-modernen und rund-weichen Basslinien ist alles drin, ohne Eigenständigkeit einzubüßen.
Auch bei mehrstimmigem Spiel (oder geslappt) transparent, durchsetzungsfähig, dynamisch und ohne lästige Pegelschwankungen.
Einziger Makel war die nicht ganz optimale Saitenlage der G-Saite bei Lieferung, was sich aber auch mit Hilfe des mitgelieferten Werkzeugs in wenigen Augenblicken justieren liess.
Mit dem Bass kann ich alles spielen, was ich jemals gespielt habe, Funk, Rock, härterer Rock, Pop, Blues, Soul, Jazz...
Den gebe ich nie wieder her :-)
