    Benavente SC4 showed up this morning! This is the first single cut bass I have ever played. I cannot believe how comfortable, light, and well balanced this bass is. 35" scale. Cluster Burl full top w/ tequila sunrise finish. Mahogany body. Aero jazz pups w/ Benavente preamp. Fretless Macc Ebony board. What a beauty![​IMG]

  4. Man that is gorgeous! :hyper:

    I love that color. I like most colors in the gold-red-brown family. I guess that's why I like sunburst so much.

    She is a beauty, Zonwon. Good luck with her.

    Are U satisfied of preamp ?
     
  6. I'm not too fond of the top wood, or the colour, but apart from that it's a beauty. Enjoy!

    I have not had the chance to plug it in yet. I received the bass at work. I do have the same preamp in a 219B and I love it. They are fantastic preamps.

    Thanks Steve. I was trying to forget. At the time I was thinking, "please be my dog".

    Well I got home and plugged it in to an Ashdown ABM 300 head, a Thunderfunk head, and an Epifani 3-10 cab. It is a keeper. I truely could not ask for a better bass. I was using a Pedulla Buzz bass which is also a fantastic bass but very limited e.q. This Benavente just sings. I cannot say enough about the feel of the neck. That is what originally sold me on these basses. But the balance is also perfect.

  15. Dude, that's cruel considering he is handling it with dignity. :)

    Now if you want to talk about undignified... I was taking a swig of pop when I saw your post and almost puked it out through my nose. That could've been truly painful. Ow.

    Anyhow, truly beautiful bass Zonwon! Congrats.

    Excellent. Glad you love it. I just checked your band's schedule. Too bad y'all aren't playing Christmas week. I am going to be in Dearborn visiting the parents. It woulda been cool to see (and hear)the new axe live.

    What do you call that grain pattern between the pickups?
