Believe me: it is
Unlike Cort or more expensive Lakland, as I used to own a Clover Apeiròn HJ5
The two sounds were not only discriminatin': they were two completely different souls inside the same (quality) body
I strangely did the opposite than normal: I recorded with the active mode and full neck + humbucker pickups on (they were powerful and dead quiet at the very same time) and played live in passive mode with just the external bridge coil to pair the neck pickup, with the attack and roar of a 5er Jazz bass!
I sold that bass (a beautifully crafted instrument with zero fret
and superflat neck) because of its bridge
Lookin' solid and stable like my favorite G&L one, it featured poor screw filings and quickly lost the precision it pretended to show in taylorizin' setups and intonation
Not your problem, given that you just aim to adopt electronics
and pickups for a project bass.
