    I follow Davie504 on YouTube, and was wondering what bass he is playing this video.

    I don't really understand the basis of the video, but it's a pretty cool looking bass. I believe the headstock says "Benson" or "Bensons." Can anyone identify?

    Definitely says "Bensons" on the headstock, I can't read the smaller print. Google on "Bensons" doesn't show anything likely. Good luck.

    Edit: My Google-fu is weak today. See above.

    Did you end up buying one and is it any good?

    Sorry, no. That’s way out of my price range unfortunately.

    Hi there! This Jazz Bass sounds different than an ordinary Fender. Not sure if it's because of it's finish of wood itself.

    But it's so beautiful...!

    I chat with the music store on FB. They do ship to US. The Bensons bass is made in China.
    Note the price listed is in Taiwan dollar. USD is about $412 excluding shipping

    Now I want a Benson.
    Just when I thought it was safe to go back into the waters.
