Fantastic bass - very poor setup

EasyGoinRoj, 07.07.2014
Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with this bass. Nice neck, easy to play, and from the sound, you would never guess that it is a short-scale.

It's just a pity that when it arrived it was completely unplayable. Even though it arrived detuned, there was so much relief on the neck, that "banana" would have been a better description.

Also, nut was raised very high - at it's lowest setting it just about conforms to the height specified in the manual. I also had to lower the bridge quite a lot.

Okay, at 615 Euros, I don't expect it to be perfectly set up out-of the box, but, you also don't expect to have to spend an hour adjusting things before you can even try it.

Having said that, once it's set up, it's unbelievably good. The range of tones is incredible, deep but very clear bass (no muddiness at all). Loads of top available, although if you turn the treble beyond about three quarters, there is some hiss.

So, the two stars I've given for quality are really for the appalling initial set-up. Otherwise, I have no complaints at all.

Not a bad little bass

05.07.2015
It's a little heavier than i would have liked for a short scale, but it's probably a good thing as it's got quite a chunky neck (but great feeling). Sounds amazing. Set up would be excellent as once you've set that bridge it's not moving. But unfortunately the neck seems to be a bit too mobile and has required frequent adjustment in the two years I've owned it. As it was brand new though, I expect it will settle down. Thomann service excellent, as always.
