  5. its a Bass Collection 335
    it plays beautifully...nice tight B... and a loada different sounds, cos its active/passive switchable!

    Looks classic, yet modern. I like it.
  7. yeah, its looking a a little grubby from playing cos i havn't really wiped it down with a nice shimmy (cloth) yet. But as u can see the finish is gourgeous, reflects everything! :)

    i'm not normally into gold hardware, but this is an exception, i think the transparent purple really sets off the hardware!

  8. Nice bass!
  9. AllodoX hasn't heard of 'bass collection' before. ? :confused:

    Bass Collection are cool, Ibanezish styling but a bit classier and nicer than Ibanez. Brass nut and slightly wider neck (I think). Their site used to be but I don't think it exists anymore. Also nicer electronics than Ibanez. Cool bass.

    You see quite a lot of them about in the UK - the Bass Centre in Wapping seems to be the main distributor and has loads of them.

    I've tried quite a few and didn't really like them - the body always felt too small so that the overall balance didn't feel right and none of them could get the sound I was really after.

    But this particular one, does look like a very nice example!
  12. Got a link to a site too, Bruce ?

    I had a 4 string & a friend of mine had 2 4's & the necks were very flimsy. He had one of his necks replaced, the one I had had to be adjusted about every other day. It DID play & sound great when the bass was set up correctly, thou. I hope your neck is better than the one my friend & I had.

    Looks cool!
  16. hey
    with regards to nino's comments, wen i first got it from Bass Centre, i had it strung EADGC, but due to a change in my mood :)...i changed it to BEADG, and i had to give the neck NO adjustment!!!!
    very solid in my opinion, dunno what others are like though, sounds like i was lucky with this one! :)
