Fantastic bass
Sunday, 13 October 2019  |  Kevin

A belated note to say a HUGE thank you for this fantastic bass.

Have gigged it twice now, and it's tremendous fun to play - the nut width, and most importantly, neck profile and finish make it much easier to play long sets on hot summer nights.

The pickup is a monster too, a perfect match with the Stainless Steel Elites! What more can I say? A brilliant package with the gig bag and Bruce's book... even the box the bass came in looks cool!

Congratulations on a real winner

More companies should make a set like this. The G is now beefy enough to sound great, strings tune quick and stay in tune. Feel great too!

Great bass!
Thursday, 29 August 2019  |  Mohamed

I bought this bass because I'm a huge fan of Bruce Thomas and his bass playing. After playing it at length a few times now, I just want to say that I am really very happy with this purchase. The neck is very smooth and easy to play - it arrived set up and ready to go with nice low action. The pickups cut through nicely and sound good to me.

It seems to hold a tuning very well as I tuned it up once and it has barely budged since. The color is definitely a conversation starter, especially since I'm not a flashy guy, but it looks great in person. It's definitely more of an orange than a pink to my eyes - I love it now.

On top of all that the bass is actually pretty light so it's a pleasure to play! This was a total impulse buy and I have to say that I am really happy to have it now.

Stunning Looks, Great Value
Friday, 23 August 2019  |  Tim

This is the first bass I have bought and I spent a considerable time researching it before buying it. The Lizzy bass is a fantastic looking guitar with its black body and neck and mirror finished pick guard. It was professionally set up before being couriered to me. It was manufactured in Korea and finished to a very high standard. It has a slim fast neck and is supplied with Elites nickel plated strings which are softer on the fingers than some I have tried. The bass weighs in at a thankfully light-ish 4.1 kilos. At this price I cannot fault it. It compares well with instruments costing twice the price. Oh, and did I mention its looks...?!

Worth waiting for!
Friday, 23 August 2019  |  Stephen

It took a long time to arrive because it was a rather special instrument, but in the end it was worth waiting for. Very good service and follow-up from The Bass Centre, and excellent value for this instrument compared to others offering the same.

New Favourites!

As a long time Elites Nickel user I thought I'd give these a go on my graphite necked 5-string Status as I was after something smooth feeling, (I find most normal steels too rough), but with more 'zing' than flats and these hit it on the head!
Perfect tension, great feel and loads of tone... think I'll be coming back for some 4-string sets for some of my other basses!

Just the best

I've been using Elites since I discovered them at the Bass Centre in Wapping. I have tried virtually every single brand over the years and have concluded that elites are just the best for me.
