      I’ve known Dave at Club Bass & Guitar for 7 years now. He has never steered me wrong and this time was no exception. From the moment he handed this Modern Vintage bass to me, I knew that it was a winner. The neck is solid and super comfortable. Controls are smooth and responsive. Full range of tones from punchy to mellow – You will be able to cut through the mix! This is without a doubt a quality instrument. Do yourself a favour and give these instruments serious consideration.
