bwe's review

By bwe, 17/12/2007
My first bass, which was given to me by a drummer and son of drummer!
She is very old, then it must be respected even more.

I do not really info about the source of this low. I think this is a German manufacturer, it must date from 60 years' (type 1960, 1961 or 1962?) Something like that.
My pickguard is broken at the jack, which makes the game very static scene! ;-)

However it is with this instrument I learned to play bass.

Copra is made of wood, but which one?, Is covered with a plastic vinyl type with black and gold motif insrustations cashmere (a kind of flower).

Very light and small, this is nice despite reduced access right hand because the strings are tightened because of the delicacy of the handle!

Everything is original except for the knobs I think they are too plastic compared to the rest. And then recently I changed the strings that needed to be home too!?!
Almost all the electronics if you will be reviewed because almost nothing works!

Here it's just to give information, it appears that these are very highly rated low in the U.S. for their next vintage ...

Bwe.

UTILIZATION

The neck is very thin in the treble, quite round, 21 boxes with markers worked very pearl.
Very light and small, this is nice despite reduced access right hand because the strings are tightened because of the delicacy of the handle!

SOUNDS

Vintage her round, little given the posibility of setting knobs!

OVERALL OPINION

For 15 years in my possession.
I like its unique and vintage instrument of nearly 50 years anyway!
I did not try other models before because we gave it to me and is the only that I had to start. Then I had a Fender Precision very bone series but this time it was a loan and I returned to the owner.

I would do this if I had to choose, we will not spit in the soup.
