    Hi,
    Does anyone have this Magazine as I am looking for the review of the Chris Larkin 5 string Bass from this issue.If someone could give me a brief outline of the review and the final comments and scores.Thank you very much if anyone can help.
     
  2. Talked alot about the electronics.
    Mahogany body contributes warmth to tone, can be blurry.
    Well balanced, comfortable....neck has considerable "heft" not good for small hands.
    Impressed by quality of materials, finish near perfect, needed fretwork.
    5 way switch offered different coil combinations.
    Tone across strings even.

    Construction 4 of 5
    Electronics 5 of 5
    Playability 4 of 5
    Sound 4 of 5
    Value 4 of 5

    Bottom line "A beauteous bass with tones aplenty"

    If you need more info let me know.
