Benavente bass info? Help!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jsonnenblick, Apr 18, 2001.


  1. Hi. I'm trying to trade a Fender 4-string for a nice 5, so I put up ads at harmonycentral.com and bassgear.com

    A guy named Brian Barrett, who runs a site called thelowend.net, offered to sell me a 5-string Benavente bass for my Jazz plus cash.

    So that I can better evaluate this deal, can anyone give any info about Benavente basses? The one on the site looks beautiful, but I don't know anything about the builder. . . .

    Thanks.
     
  2. Cool bass, buy it

    Why is the input jack on the back? Or am I blind?
     
  5. Yeah, I noticed the input jack appeared to be
    oddly-located too, but figured that CAN'T be
    the jack -- it must be some sort of trick of
    the light. . . ???

    Looks like a jack to me.

    Stratocaster style to be precise.
     
  7. I think having it on the back is an interesting idea--you can run it straight through the strap that way, and there's very little risk of the jack being pulled out (goodbye tweeter) if you jump around a lot.

    The downside is not being able to leave it plugged in and on a stand.
