This looks real good to me, just saying:
Retrovibe Vantage Bass - White
Played a mates Retrovibe. Nice bass for sure.
Daves basses have quite the following.
Can't arger with that. I want to order a bass from Europe some time. Thomann has some nice looking unique affordable items I like. I was surprised how reasonable shipping to the States would be.
I'd have to add a Ric toaster pickup at the end of the neck to perfect it.
Yes, and a 5th string, and reverse the position of the P coils, and double up on the J pickup, and ....
How is the neck? I like chunky necks, like Ibanez 90's ATK305 and early ATK805 type chunky.
The Retrovibe Vantage is a cool modern take on a Ric, unfortunately Retrovibe had no US distributor, so they are rare here unless somebody brings one home.
The one I played had a more Ric feel to it.
The neck was a little too wide for me, I'm drawn more to Jazz size neck. The one in the pic above has a jazz feel and shape.
Due to trouble with my fretting hand I'm using a short scale at the moment though.
Never played a ric. I don't touch things I can't afford.
How is the thickness of the neck? The shoulders, are they shallow like a c or a full like a U shape?
Pretty sweet looking. Too bad it replaced the super p series, that was the cheapest p/mm Ive ever seen.
I love Dave's Fender/Rick mashups! That, and his Zygotes are a constantly-simmering source of GAS for me. I hope I get to try some out someday. drool
I did make it a point to pick up one of his "Stinger" preamps for a parts-bass project I'm currently working on. I can't wait to put it through it's paces!
