I've checked, there hasn't been a thread in a while.
So, what's the opinion on these basses? Like the look/idea?
Anyone played one or even own one?
What's the tone like from a metal bass? (Get your best bass for metal jokes in here)
I think they are stunning looking bass'. I'd love to own one, but for 5-6k I'd definitely be in trouble!
Maybe one day:p
I have a Loïc Le Pape, which is incidentally for sale
The tone is solid with singing non-harsh overtones - I should make samples some day. No noise at all from single coils since the whole body is shielding. Not the lightest nor the heaviest bass around at ~4.4kg.
Weight will be an issue. Metal can produce decent tone just ask regal and dobro- but those are hollow and still weigh a ton!
But I bet we aren't in the same country eloan.
Also I'm not allowed to buy a new bass this month :p
She's nice though.
I'm glad I didn't start a new thread on this particular bass. I found one whilst browsing this store's used inventory:
3 large and it's yours!
I tried out a few of these basses at the recent NAMM show. Very impressive feel overall ( on the heavy side of course!)and great sounding as well (what I could hear in the mayhem that is NAMM, that is). The shop is located about 1/2 mile from my house so I've got to get over there and give 'em a real audition...
