My baby blue is soon to arrive: LeFay Pangton 5

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by nightshifter, Jul 8, 2003.

  1. German luthier Reiner Dobbratz of LeFay has just finished my new babie's twin brother, mine will look quite the same... two more weeks of anticipation, can't wait to get it!

    What do you think of it ? :D

    I wish I could afford one, but maybe Reiner will give me one for free, with all the promotion work I do here. :D

    Treat it well, or I'll take it away from you ;)

    BTW, I noticed you have a Reussenzehn preamp. How do you like it?
    I'm thinking of checking one out.

    Looks like a basslab.
  7. JMX, I HAD one, it was a MKII, about 1988; I liked the sound, but the noise was a little too excessive, so I sold it 2 years later. But I think the actual model will have improved a lot, so go and try ! My working gear at the moment is an Aguilar DB659 which I'm deeply in love with! :rolleyes:

    BTW: Herzliche Grüsse aus Österreich! ;-)
  8. You're right, Shon, she's definitely female! Just look at her waist: :eek:

    How much did that cost you, if you don't mind me asking?
  10. No I don't: it's one of the last instruments Reiner sold directly; the fivestring was € 3000.- which is currently about $ 3500.-. He is although going to sell them via selected retailers (one in Germany, probably even NYC and LA) from now on, so consider an increase of about 25% + shipping

    Ah, one of those eurobasses.. They rock, me thinks. Perhaps I should get one of those Mr. Schwarz's, ponder..

    [​IMG] I don't normally care for headless basses, but your girl is SWEET (terrible metaphor here. ;) )!

    Looks like she has wide spacing (just the way I like 'em)... true?
  13. How could you guess that from the distance ? :D
    She even has an unbelievable nice back, really worth to touch her over and over...:oops:

  14. I've got to admit that I don't usually like headless, but I also have to admit that this one makes me shiver.
    That's a beauty!:eek:

    Simply wonderfull, congrats Nightshifter!!
    I hope you'll post soundclips!

    I love the color & the carved top......

    Only thing I can see wrong with it is that it has 1 (one) too many strings :D

    I'm still kinda undecided whether I like the old one better or not:
