Essex SJB-62 5 string

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bassman1185, Nov 15, 2004.

  1. Anybody know anything about these? I've heard mostly great stuff about Essex basses in general, but very little about this bass. I know it has very narrow string spacing (1/2 inch) which probably won't be a problem for me, since I would mostly be playing it with a pick. Otherwise, how is the B string? I mean, it's a $150 fiver, so I wouldn't expect it to be Warwick-caliber, but is it playable?
