GC had a few Ocean basses in stock this past Friday. Indonesian-made, don't know where the company HQ and R&D are. I played a couple of four and five-stringers, and was impressed. Neck-through with a well-sculpted heel made it very easy to play. The finish was practically bare wood; I like that feel, but many here may not. Looked good in a black stain, a little plain in full natural. Two Bart Mk1 soapbars with a 3-band EQ; I liked the sound of the pickups, but the EQ was a bit fiddly; turning up the mid made it honky very quickly, but just a smidge over flat gave me a great slap. It has an active-passive switch, which is a plus. The string spacing is a little narrow at the nut for my tastes but I prefer a wider spacing than most (The spacing between any two strings on my TRB is equivalent to a four-string Jazz; pretty wide for a five IME). Anyone else seen these? It was tempting, but I think I'll keep my TRB for the time being.
