I've recently purchased a Factory second CB 16 with a view to doing some modifications - changing to a F#,B,E,A,D,G tuning. The bass was made in Indonesia so I was not expecting a lot. HOW WRONG I WAS. The build is excellent. The neck fits the pocket like a glove with no gaps anywhere. The reason it is a second is a small ding the diameter of a pea in the carved spalted maple top unnoticed by six friend inspecting the bass. The body is mahogany with spalted carved maple top and feels indestrucable. Tha controls consist of an active two band eq(treble cut/boost, bass cut/boost) a master volume and a pup blend. The pups are a jazz ergnater in the neck and soapbar ergnater in bridge - Ergnater are a respectable amp maker and now it seems do damn fine pups. The bass has great variations in sounds to offer from tight puncy , sparkling slap through to earth moving reggae. All this for 360 bucks, I am a happy camper and have shelved my plans to dismember this bass.
