Does anyone own one of these basses, or even tried one?
uh, is there a point to this question? because i cannot see what you are referring to.
Look around TB, there've been a few threads about the company. Word on the street says that they're great basses, they just cost about as much as the average house (I exaggerate).
Do a search. Find some colorful discussion.
£7,000.00 basic starting price; that ehm, 11500 dollars??
Sorry, the point was that I came across one that was 'passing through' a friend of mine who is a respected guitar tech. He was dressing the frets so the strings were off and I couldn't try it out or anything. What struck me was that it was both weird looking and very elegant at the same time; a strange comment but I don't quite know what else to say about the looks. The other thing was that it was incredibly light to pick up. I understand that they are very expensive, so I was curious as to whether anyone on this forum actually owned or played one and, if so, their impressions.
I have done a trawl on the site and it looks like they are known by magazine review only and not through first hand experience. I was thinking about the price and actually that is what people pay when they get something like an Alembic Series 2.
Here you go, starting from post #31, first hand experience:
Thanks for the steer. All I can vouch for is the fact that they are so incredibly light.
Ouch! Don't run with one of those in your hands!
it seems a bit suspicious that the guy(s) defending or more like endorsing these basses in the previous thread made an account, dug up a thread posted on the magic marvels.. then went away.. almost sounds like a commercial plug, or best friends or something...
