    I just received my LowEnd Jazz 4 string today and I must tell you all that this brings the HEAT!!!

    It's an ash bodied 4 string with a maple/maple neck, the Benavente slims with the Benavente PreAmp. It has 2 half guards, one black, one tortoise. The bass arrived in Brian's new LowEnd gig bag, a HUGE BONUS.

    You all should try one of these out, they are AWESOME. I can't say enough about these basses.

    Congrats!!! I bet she plays wonderfully. How do you like it so far? Always wanted to get my hands on a Benavente or a LowEnd Jazz... your one lucky man.

    Sweet looking bass! But if I were you I'd remove the pickguard. ;)

    Bridge Volume - pull up for series/parallel
    Treble boost/cut
    Mid boost/cut
    Bass boost/cut - pull up for active/passive

    It looks much better with the half black guard on it.
