    Hey guys, theres a pavel bass for sale locally and i fell in love with it the instant i saw it. Problem is ive never heard of them and its not exactly cheap. I cant afford it right now but i imagine it will be on the wall for a LONG time so i may pick it up later.

    That being said, does anyone have any info? A google search didnt turn up much and my talkbass search was iffy at best.
     
  2. I found out about Paval basses the other day and talked to a woman on Facebook who has one and loves it.

    I saw a picture of the back of the headstock of one of their guitars, though, and it looked a lot like the tuners were mounted crookedly.:meh:

    I'm not sure what to say about that.

    Nice guy, good builder. Tried out a few basses at his shop and they were all well built but there were certain aspects I didn't like. Really really pricey. He did some work for me on bass that had a cracked finish on the clearcoat and it came out perfect.

    I think the one here must be one of his older basses. It doesnt look much like the ones he has on his pages.

    I heard he was leaving the bass building buisness. Going back to his native country.

    What are his basses worth on average?

    Ok, well maybe ill see if i can get the price even lower. lol

    I wonder if i can get ahold of the guy.
     
  12. I have a Pavel JazzPro Deluxe "Petite" (32"). It's gorgeous, plays like a dream, and got kick-ass tone (Reed James pickups).

    When I first got it I took it to jam sessions and let other bassists play it. I got comments like "smoothest neck I've ever held" "whoa, great tone" "it practically plays itself" "feels so good in my hands"

    I treasure it.
     
  13. I believe you're the one I was talking to on Facebook, right?
    Post a picture of that gorgeous bass!

    Easy "Line6man", I'm an emotional guy and might not get over it. :D

    That photo was just for showing the customer NOT a "gallery" shot. Afterwards the tuners was re-straightened and tightened. :) Good eye!

    None the less, the prices in my previous site (new one in the works, that's why the temporary page) was only the RETAIL price. Knock off around 20% depending if you live in the US or abroad (custom + shipping charges). People are posting so to make it fair, I want to let it be known.

    My stuff (100% handmade here in my shop) STARTS at around 2,600.00K, 3-6 mo. For a custom handmade instrument with premium select woods and components? That's definitely reasonably priced!

    Just replying...

  16. Somehow I was under the impression that your basses regularly approached Fodera pricing. Glad to hear that isn't the case :)

    I have never seen one in person (only recently heard of them), but they look super nice. Turns out I may be in the market for a new bass in a couple months, and Pavel may just be on the list of possible builders...

  19. Here it is. Isn't she pretty? :)

    (And by the way, the tuners are perfectly straight, whoever it was who thought they weren't.)
