    I traded for this beauty and have it coming my way. It is one of the best looking and sounding basses I've ever seen. This will be my first Benavente bass and hopefully not my last.

    Benavente Basses seem to be work of arts. I'm excited to get it.

    Stunning! Nicely done! One of the best basses I've owned(and one of my biggest regrets moving it) was a Benavente single cut with a Mac Ebony top. These basses balance so nicely and have such great feeling necks. Enjoy it!

    How did you like the the tone and how they would set in a live mix? This one has been upgraded with the newest preamp Chris has for his basses. Was supposed to really smoothed the tone out. The previous owner sent me some sound clips and they sounded amazing. Just wondering what other that have owned thought about the tone.

    Well its not going to be a good comparison as the one I had featured Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups and a Nordstrand pre. Also the wood combo was different. Mine was a growly monster with a sweet singing top end. Sat in the mix just great. But again, totally different specs other than body shape.
