Gorgeous bass that can sound any way you want it to.

John Ramsey, 22.01.2018
Let me start by saying that I love this bass. There it is said, now let's see why.
Aesthetically it is a beautiful instrument with a very pleasant finish. Looks are subjective, it is true, but it is hard to not see the beauty in the minimalist, "natural" feel of the open pore finish. The feeling to the touch is very woody. You can feel every fiber of the wood under your fingers which I really like. Besides looks and feel, the bass even smells good, kinda oily/woody, very appealing.

The choice of woods is excellent. The naturally dark neck gives it some personality, especially when compared to a very large majority of the basses that come with plain maple necks. The instrument is very well balanced and will not tilt when not held with both hands.
The 5 pieces neck is of average thickness and very pleasant to the hand. It is well machined and it is very hard to tell, by feel, where the pieces are glued together, only the difference in grain between wenge and rosewood gives a little clue. The closer it gets to the body of the bass, the flatter the back of the neck gets which makes thumb position for accessing the high notes a breeze.
The unlined fingerboard is beautiful, polished and has discreet but easily noticeable dots on its side. The relief of the neck was a bit too lose for my taste. Once I straightened it and lowered the action at the the bridge, the increase in "MWAH" was noticeable and welcomed. Setting the intonation using the dots as markers was fast and easy.

Hardware is overall great. Tuners and bridge are solid and well finished. The nut is quite good and the grooves for the strings are very low, very close to the fingerboard as they should be on a fretless which makes for excellent intonation. The combo Bartollini pick ups with Mark Bass pre-amp is wonderful and gives the bass a very wide palette of sounds, not at all gimmicky, really impressive and very woody tones come out of this beauty. The sustain is excellent, even with flatwounds.

With that said, the instrument is not perfect. I was very disappointed to find a few small dots of dried up glue on the back of the neck which indicates a final check up that might have been done too fast. The electronics cavity is not a mess but it could be tidier as the pre-amp chip is just floating in there. Also the wood top of the cavity seems dangerously thin, I'd hate to drop my bass on this part of it's body and I would expect it to crack quite easily under shock. The controls are not leveled and the switch is not well oriented out of the box. Last thing, more subjective this time, the bass comes with roundwounds mounted on. I don't much like the feel and sound of roundwounds on a fretless but, moreover, I don't like that they scuffed the fingerboard of my beauty with just 2 weeks of very light use. I since then switched to GHS flatwounds and am now ecstatic with the sound, feel and preservation of my fingerboard.

In conclusion, if you want a bass that is not a JJ or P/JP with classic looks/finish, that sounds great and comes with very good hardware out of the box for a very fair price, don't look much further. She is a keeper!

Pros:
Gorgeous bass
unique looks
very wide palette of sounds
light enough to be comfortable for long sessions
very pleasant feel to the touch
excellent choice of woods
lots of sustain
very nice hardware
very fair price

Cons:
final inspection doesn't seem bullet proof
thin wood roof on the electronics cavity
maple headstock doesn't match the swamp ash body
open pore finish means dirt can become a problem in time
open pore finish means you should be careful with sudden climatic changes
action too high out of the box

Molto buoni bassi

JesusAguilar, 19.09.2017
E 'un incredibile basso, se si vuole un fretless, questo è sicuramente una buona scelta, il finale è bellissimo. Per quanto riguarda il suono ha una versatilità come pochi altri, la posizione passiva è molto personale e lato attivo ha il potere serio brutale, è da notare che è venuto qualcosa di perdere la presa, da che altro un lusso.
