Does anybody have any opinions on tune basses....the 6 string specifically.
Do a search on Tune basses and you'll find several threads. You'll probably find what you're looking for about the 6.
I like them except for the cheezy gold hardware.
Here's a few...
I only went halfway through the 500 results I found, so there may be more... Hope you find something that helps you!
i own a twb63 fm mik, sounds great. best 6string for the money.
CEO Mr.Choi is a very nice guy. custom service is very good.
I had heard that the japan high end version is good and expensive, but the Korean version being sell on Musicianfriends(?) which i dont know.. for sure they will cut cost on the pickup part.
as far as i know the parts of the tune bass mij early models and mik are all the same except tuners.
if u got a tune guitar technology mij u will find the preamp r made by wscmusic.
this is email i got from tune mik
''1. We have the right and registered for sailing TUNE BASS to Whole of the world (Europe, America, Korea and China) except for 'Japan'.
'Kanda' has the right for sailing just in Japan only, and they are not able to export their Tune made in Japan to other country.
2. Since the Tune Japan has bankrupted, Mr. Hatsan made over the right and whole of Tune drawing to WSC, we became a new owner of Tune Bass 7 years ago.
3. Tune Bass guitar parts was made by WSC for 15 years except for 'Head Machine', there is no problem to change the origins in country.
4. Now the Tune Bass is made in Samick Korea with WSC parts, inspected by WSC.
First one is our president Mr.Choi with Mr.Hatsun who made over all the rights to WSC, in last Namm show.
OTOH, the Tune Japan site has the following:
So, my question is, if J Tune sold its rights to K Tune, why the disclaimer? As well as the "beware of imitation" warnings at various places on the site?
Fred, do you know something that you're not telling?
Original, Japanese Tune is not the same as the MIK Tune.
I don't know the entire story behind it, but I'm sure of this.
he was also the guy that designed the original TBC preamp, in the TBC MM USA made clones in the 90's early 2000's
warnan, do you have a URL for Tune Korea? I can't seem to find it. I found a link to tunebass.com, but the domain is not active.
I own a couple of the original Tune basses from Japan and a Korean made TWX5. Wow the Japanese models are outstanding boutique quality basses. Ebony fretboard, schaller tuners, inset bridge. The Korean bass is a lower quality instrument that does not sound as good, but still avery good bass for the money - very playable and decent sound.
I spoke to them (Tune Korea) at the NAMM show about being a distributor for them in St. Louis. But right now they are just selling online and through Musician's Friend. Hope this helps some. andy
