    Anybody know much about these basses? How would they compare to a Lakland or Sadowsky. Just wondering?

    How do they compare?
  5. Meshell NdegeOcello plays one. She sounds pretty damned good on it.

    I dig 'em as well. There are alot of high end Jazz types I REALLY want. Moon, Lull, Lakie USA JO, Celinder, Atelier Z, and Sadowsky. Ah, so many choices and so little money!

    In my opinion the Celinders are no doubt the best of the Jazz copies. They also make other models that are excellent. The 22fret chambered bass that they make is one of the nicest basses that I've ever played. I tried the one at Rudy's in New York and it impressed the hell out of me.

    I've played a couple. They are nice but IMO way too expensive for what you get. Decent basses but not mind blowing IMO.

    Way too expensive for what you get.. Sorry, I don't think so... I've owned Sadowskys, Laklands, etc. etc. I love my Celinders... They sound great and play awesome... I still have a Lakland Joe Osborne 5 which is a great bass and I'd keep it, but I'm not gigging enough and just decided to keep the Celinders... The Sadowskys and Laklands are excellent basses too and as far as customer service they cannot be beat, it just depends on what you are looking for... I'd still have mine, but I'm starting to think of retirement and finally growing up, so I have to cut down on my toys..
    If anybody has any specific questions on the Celinders e-mail me (SCT1422@MSN.COM)..

    Chill man.

    I gave my opinion based on playing about 5 different Celinder's of different types. I am not a dummy so my opinion is valid, if you disagree fine, but I would never pay that much for what you get in those basses and that is just my stance on it. Don't say things like "Sorry, I don't think so" because that insinuates I am wrong which I am not since it's my opinion. Give me a break.

    Jared... What you stated is fine as well as what I stated... We all have opinions and experiences that we should respect...
    I learn from all of it and isn't that what these talk sites are all about... I didn't mean to come off as defensive and I apologize if you took that way.... What I meant basically was in comparison to maybe Laklands or Sadowskys, which are higher end basses that command a high price....

    Expensive?! Aren't you the guy going on 3 Fodera's?
    I admit that they are really nice basses but I wouldn't pay the price that they want for one bass. I am anal about my basses and they have to be a certain way but I can't afford to be a collector. I play professionally and I like to play my instruments. Just my opinion.

    I have to agree that the Celinders, for the market that they are going for, are fantastic instruments and worth every penny. Jazz copies aren't for me either but for the person wanting the best of what it is, I think they are just that. I would highly recommend them.
