There's a 1 missing from the beginning of the price tag

I must admit I was still slightly cynical after reading the independent reviews of the Betsy bass but, after listening to a few examples on YouTube, I decided that £595 was a safe bet. I've had a custom Status Series II for the last 17 years and fancied something fresh so for me, playing in a couple of Pink Floyd tributes, having a replica of Guy's famous Jazz bass seemed like a no-brainer.

I haven't put this bass down since taking delivery last month and I haven't stopped grinning yet - there's nothing I don't like about it. The bass is setup with 40-100 strings and a lovely low action against a fast neck that feels so light and easy to play. The EMG pickups are fantastic and offer a wide range of tones; I pretty much stick with the bridge on full and the neck rolled off slightly and the bass does all the talking from there, it just loves to groove and party. And the overall balance (when I finally remembered to belatedly order a strap from The Bass Centre!) is perfect for me.

So, yes, if I had picked up and tried one of these basses without knowing the price beforehand I would have guessed it was it was priced at £1,595. Oh, and you get a soft case, AND a signed copy of Guy's book. It's an absolute joy to play and an amazing bargain, I'm so pleased (my wife let me) buy it!

Now Covid, please **** off and let us all go out and play again

At noon, I received the NS CR5 and I am thrilled. The bass pizz sound is great (fantastic with the extra F-string) and even the arco sound is good. Now Iíll start experimenting with other sounds! Awesome!

This bass is a gem

I had this bass in the nineties. What I got now is probably even better. Excellent sound, playability, setup, strings. I am very satisfied with this instrument and the seller.

Lovely bass, nice and light. Came really well set up. Looks and sounds great.

Best strings I have ever tried!
Friday, 31 July 2020  |  Dylan

These strings are the best strings I have had. They have the feel And durability of flat wounds but they still keep some brightness like round wounds. They are the perfect combination of the two!

The bass Iíve been looking for!
Saturday, 18 July 2020  |  Juan

Iíd spent a year searching for a new P-Bass. I looked at the Mexican and American Fenders. There was always something I didnít like about the ones I tried (yes, including colour!). I wanted a faster neck without the sticky lacquer, I needed a lightweight one due to shoulder and back issues. Iíd always expected to have to upgrade the pickups and probably add a pickguard in a better colour. Then I spoke to a couple of Profile bass owners and read some reviews. I wouldnít usually buy a bass without trying it first but everyone was saying the same things about the Bruce Thomas Profile; consistently lightweight, good pickups, fast, thin neck profile. And the price! I felt it was worth the risk. I wasnít disappointed. Itís a beauty too. Is it perfect? No, Iíll probably change the tuners for ultralights as it is the teeniest bit neck heavy. If you practice sitting down you probably wouldnít even notice it but, with my back, ergonomics are important.

In summary, itís a joy to play, I love the weight, sound and look of it. Once Iíve added new tuners , Itíll be my P-Bass for life.
