Le Fay Basses anyone?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by TheMartianBassist, Mar 11, 2016.

  1. Does anyone own or have any experience with these basses? Anton Davidyants plays one and it sounds great.
    Also does anyone know what the wait time is?

    I always hankered after the Pangton, after seeing and hearing one up close in the early '90s. Thanks for the reminder.

    I have a Herr Schwarz 4. Extremely well build. Electronics are superb. What I like most is the feel. The bass felt very "alive". I had to wait 3 months for that one in 2013.

    Dan at Luthiers Access Group carries that brand and usually has a few in stock. Le Fay is one of the reasons I could never truly be gas-free. :)

    Le Fay is definitely on my wish list. A five string Herr Schwarz in....well...schwarz would do nicely. The Remington Steele fretless is also right up there.

    I had a Carlsson fretless with steel fretboard for many years, sold it last year because I hardly played it and couldn't justify keeping it as a piece of furniture. Used it in the studio a few years ago and it sounded fantastic!
    Le Fay quality is, IMO, probably as good as it gets - close to insanely good.
    Have tested several Herr Schwarz 5-string basses (WOW!) and although I consider myself almost GAS-free in terms of basses, there will-will-will-will be a Herr Schwarz in my life sooner or later. Not cheap, but worth every penny in my book.

    Edit: verb - noun - grammar - damn
