    I like the body. The neck looks kind Blah to me though. Needs a better headstock.

    The two strap pins have me confused.


    The body and neck look great but the headstock does look a little funny.

    A Gibson-like 2+2 headstock would have been better I think.

    I think it looks kind of cool. It'll probably be neck heavy, because of the body shape. Usually, where the low end basses suffer most is the electronics *(IMO). The fretwork might leave a bit to be desired. Without ever playing one, everything is a guess. For the price, it might be worth trying.
     
  8. Why are there 2 strap buttons on the base of the body ? And the placement of the pots looks a little odd to me. Just my opinion, as you asked.

    Which new reflex models?
     
  10. that double j pickup looks intriguing
    I cant see how it can be any better/worse than an SX
    Its not too expensive so its not the greatest loss if its bunk

  13. I think it's a nice design. Not a fan of that type of figured wood top, but that's just a personal preference. And it could use a pickguard and switchplate.

    This is sounding better and better! A good review and now that I've seen it compared to that Music Man bass I feel a lot better about the Fender style headstock. I'm even okay with the knob placement (though the two rear strap buttons is weird). If the sound isn't what I'm looking for I could always replace the pickups and do electronics work. Looks like this will be my next bass!!

  17. If you buy one, we'd appreciate a thorough review when you've had some time to set it up to taste and hunker down over it for a few days.
