purchases and this one is really special. The neck is fantastic - rock solid and it feels amazing. It's got a great thickness & profile, and the finish makes it really enjoyable to play. I've been playing it through an old Promethean head with Bag End cabinets at home, and an SVT at the rehearsal space I go to. The clarity & tightness in the low register is great and the top-end from the pickups gives a really nice shine to everything. Even with the tone dialled all the way back, with new strings there's a subtle zing that sits on top of this great foundation. The weight is perfect and it's got a great balance in the lap or on a strap. This bass feels like coming home. Thanks again Dave for your insights & help! Show Less
Bass arrived today after only a short time enroute... Show More
to me from Toronto. Dave actually took the time himself to keep me updated on its whereabouts 🙂
The fit and finish is excellent.
Neck is a thing of beauty. It’s quick hey.
I had to tweak the truss slightly for string height but overall it’s great. Smooth to play, fretwork is excellent.
There’s some rattle on the E string when doing two finger pull offs but can get that sorted easily enough.
The tone knob has quite a range of use and the pickups are punchy as F@#$. Just saying.
Through my GK/410 NEO I actually like the sound of the bass more without a compressor. So dynamic.
Thanks again Dave. Show Less
Finally! A replacement for my first Precision Bass... Show More
. Modern Vintage have exceeded their goal of building a great bass. I now own the bass pictured above, and I am more than pleased with it. Warm mellow tones or bright snap and pop, the versatility is amazing. The neck is a dream. Effortless playability and the Hipshot Ultralight tuners are precise and stable. Great bass! Show Less
