    If anyone has played this or owns one please submit any comments you have about it. Would anyone recommend it over the Brice v2 6 String Bass Active?
     
  2. Welcome to Talkbass! here is a link to the Essex Bass Guitar MEGATHREAD!

    This covers all bass guitars from the rondomusic website and you might be able to find some answers there. If you end up getting the Brice v2 Active 6er, lemme know how it is ;) ~ Tyler

    I haven't played either but I'm thinking of picking one up. I personally like the look of the colored V2 basses better than the HXB ones.

    I have an HXB I just got it friday and the only problem I have with it is the fret buzz.
     
  5. How bad is the fret buzz? I have been considering one of these for awhile...

    hows the low B? floppy, or tight?
     
  8. Fixed how? Just a simple truss rod or action adjustment? If it's something simple like that then that's no problem at all.

    an I too, would like to know about the tension of the B...

    yes a truss rod adjustment, and a thicker uage of stings, because the nut isn't that great.

    Oh and the B is floppy but maybe a different set of strings would fix that
