Vintage basses

  1. Hey peeps,
    Anyone heard of this company before?

    http://www.jhs.co.uk/vintagebass.html

    It looks pretty well established, even though I've never heard of them. Artist roster and everything. Also, I've heard of Wilkinson (which supplies all the tuners and pickups), but thought they were a company that makes razor blades. So it's pretty interesting.

    I was specifically checking out their 950B model. Kind of a Warwick body clone. Seems like they've got pretty good reviews in some magazines.

    Any inputs?

    Wow, my local music shop actually carries these basses in store. I was looking through last week and thought they were a cheap knock off due to the 'Vintage' headstock logo that kinda looks like they tried to copy the Fender font...Also the neck finish looked really over the top IMO.

    Reading the specs however they seem to be pretty good looking. Maybe i will head back and try them out...
     
  6. My music teacher in high school (went to university for music, specializing in Jazz bass performance I believe) has one, and loves it. I've played it, seems pretty nice.

    I've played them. they're not bad, good value for the money. There are others I'd take over them in that price range

    The UK gets shafted on prices of these kind of things. I've seen the Vintage basses go for closer to $250 (used) here.
