    Has anyone out there played or heard a Devon bass perhaps in a store or even own one. They appear to be fine instruments, but I've heard no input about them. I play gospel, R&B, funk, jazz and reggae.

    I've played a 4 string fretless Jazz and a 5 string MM/J and they were both suberb instruments. I really don't think you can go wrong with one. I'm with Todd 2 tumbs up!

    Devon is a friend of mine and he builds really really fine instruments. I play in church exclusively and have owned a Devon and will own another one soon. The basses have plenty of flexability and balance well. They are very playable and you can pick from several different pickup preamp combos. They sit well in just about any mix. He is very knowledgeable and always is willing to service his instruments.

    Thanks guys. I'm glad to hear positive comments about Devon. Would you compare them to Roscoe, Elrick and/or MTD in build quality and sound?
  6. I own a Devon PJ bass. First, he was awesome to deal with. The bass is posted in the gear reviews section if you are interested in seeing a picture and reading the review . It is the nicest playing bass I have owned. He put Aero pickups in it and I am totally impressed with the fit, finish, and sound of it. I would highly recommend a Devon bass...
