How rare is my Westone super headless fretless LH

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Tom Bernauer, Jul 26, 2018.

  1. When I bought this bass, it had to be ordered at the factory, because there was no production line for it, the salesman said. That is why I wonder if there are people having this model. Righthanded players are free to reply too. The thing is, that I find the sound a bit too light. Comparing to modern basses like I heard on the Don Henley live dvd, it is really disappointing. Can anyone give me some advise to get near that sound?

    It’s a beautiful bass.
    If you don’t like the sound, first try changing the way you EQ your amp.
    Otherwise consider changing the pickups or the preamp.
  4. As I read before, the tone control in active mode is not very usefull, so I mostly use the passive mode. I replaced the pickup switch wth a panpot, it gives more tone control. Changing the electronics for a 3 band eq seems interesting.
  5. I have an old Westone that's nearly identical, but not fretless. If your electronics are anything like mine, you should be able to get a very wide range of sounds. Your knob layout appears to be similar to mine. It has active electronics. Have you checked the batteries? If I recall correctly, one of the switches allows you to bypass the active electronics. I'll have to get mine out when I get home.
