Really pleased with the service. I enquired a few months ago about the Profile - it was out of stock but put my name down to be notified, ordered one when they became available and it arrived a few days later.
I play mainly in a covers band doing a lot of new wave stuff including Attractions numbers. I have an 80's Japanese Precision (owned since '93) which I love but it does have a thick neck and I tend to favour a Jazz ( Mexican) for live as it's more playable. The reviews and history of the Profile looked encouraging, particularly the time invested by Bruce himself to produce a specific instrument that isn't just a signature on a stock guitar, so I took the plunge.
I've hardly put it down since. It feels fantastic to play. I like the satin finish on the neck (was thinking of sanding the gloss neck on my Precision!) and the build quality is that of an instrument that should cost double. The pickups are fantastic - SO LOUD with loads of sustain and generally awesome tone. Also I was pleased to see that although the Profile looks red in a lot of internet pictures, it is definitely salmon pink like the original. Great job !!!!
Everything about this bass is perfect. It sounds amazing and the set up is great. It really is flawless. It's the best £500 I've ever spent on an instrument. Now, if only I could play it like Bruce or Bedders!
Very comfortable strings to play and quick to stabilise. I'm using these strings for the first time... sure, groundwound strings are a bit of a trade off - less string squeak but less 'zing' too. If you want the classic roundwound brilliance, look elsewhere... but if you want the comfort of tapewound strings with a bit more 'open-ness' and articulation at a sensible price then look no further. These strings fit the bill perfectly. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
I'm very happy with the strings I bought. I've used them for years and I know & trust them. However I bought 3 sets of strings, 2x4 string sets & 1x6 string set, but didn't receive the t-shirt that was said to be on offer when I bought two sets of strings. Ho hum.
