Hello, after asking for some advice here i bought a Chowny SWB-1. The bass came 3 months late, Chowny had delays and Gears4Music has been a terrible communicator. They announced 1-2 weeks for shipping (without asking to Chowny) and it was clearly not realistic. When the bass arrived, at first i was impressed, the thing is very confortable to play, sounds great. The EMG Pre-amp is very impressive, and gives a great variety of sounds. But i think the quality control maybe a bit off. Two screw to set the saddles for intonation on the E and A strings are stuck. The allen key (1.5) doesn't grip the screw, it just spins. I've tried a bigger one but doesn't work to. And of course like it wasn't enough trouble i got an high fret on the 15th. It rattles like crazy just on this spot of the G string. To make sure i wasn't making up things in my head, i made an homemade fret rocker. The thing is clearly higher than the others. I tried to correct it by rising the action, now it's twice as high as all other strings and it keeps rattling if i dig in... I really enjoy this bass when it works fine. I'm in France and it seems really a bad idea to send it back to UK, i may end up waiting another 3 months without any instrument to play.
