    Hey guys!

    Has anyone tried out Moon basses(The Japanese brand that makes Jazz Basses) THey look awefully yummy! I saw those 5 strings and they made me have serous GAS... Since I don't know their website and stuff, has anyone tried it or own one? If so, if you could give me some details on the bass! Thanks!

    Happy Memorial Day!

    Yea the moons are really sweet basses. Well the Jazz moon's. Not to fond of the other models.

    But the moons have a great feel and everyone I've owned played like butter. I've been very impressed with them.

    On the used market there not to expensive.

    And no big wheel I don't have one forsale.

    The ACACIA's are wonderfull instruments, BUT they are NOT built in MIJ.

    They are built in PA, USA.

    Matt Friedman is the builder and a super nice guy!!
     
  6. Those Seymour Duncan basses look great, are they only available in Japan?

    I guess they are really popular over there. But they are built here and there are a few Acacia dealers here in the US including myself.

    I'm not sure how plentifull they are over there.

    If you go to my website and can find alot of pictures of different ones in the picture gallery.

    thanks
