    Anybody have one of these things? Their Consat custom 5-string is something I'm going to have to get someday. Just wondering how you would "rate" these basses against a GB or Fodera or Ritter or Hanewinckel or ....

    I don't own one, but played a signature model over the weekend. It was one of the nicest basses I've seen, very playable, excellent attention to detail, virtually perfect in every way!

    The low B was good, but not as good as a Roscoe or my Jerzy Drozd Mastery VI, but still it was good enough I'd buy one if I had $5K layin' around!

    I'd put it in the same class as an MTD, Fodera, Jerzy Drozd, Kenneth Lawrence, or Elrick.

    I played a Constat at a Guitar Show here in TX a couple years back. WOW! One of the smoothest, well-crafted, easy-to-play instruments I've picked up. One of those memorable instruments that makes a definite impression. Bass Player mag loved the M Bass too (I know I know, they love EVERY bass)

    I could not figure out That programmable EQ but it is very deep. It'll do a lot.

    If you can afford it, I bet you would not regret the purchase.:D

    Cool - thanks for the info. I definitely can't afford it! The awesome looks, build quality and that programmable eq make me want to though :)
