Good strings
Friday, 2 July 2021  |  Robert

I use these on my Betsy, and they stay in tune well and have stayed bright for a long while as well as being very responsive.

Great service and the instrument plays even better
Thursday, 17 June 2021  |  P.J.

Some time ago - some decades, actually - I had one of the original styles of Ashbory Bass and even had Ashley Jones re-build it with upgraded electronics. I was made an offer I could not refuse for the instrument, so have had to do without since. But then I saw a review of the new version and decided that I just had to have one for the sake of completeness, if nothing else. Good decision, the dinky little fellow is better than it ever was, The Bass Centre gave great service and the instrument plays even better.

Buy one!

I don't know how they do it!
Friday, 21 May 2021  |  Mark

I can't really add any more that hasn't already been said. Betsy is an absolute steal. The EMGs work a treat in delivering a punchy tone that can be diluted to taste. She was set up beautifully and ready to rock (jazz?) right out of the box (gig bag and Guy's signed book included, too). The only downside was a personal one in that I learned I've been using the wrong gauge strings for years!!!

Thank you Bass Centre. Service was great and delivery was rapid, expect an order for some more (light gauge) strings in the not too distant future...

Exceeded my expectations in every way
Sunday, 9 May 2021  |  Andrew

The Profile has exceeded my expectations in every way and is as good a P as I've ever played....and thats a lot of P's.

The macassar ebony fingerboard is a big plus for me. What a colour... my Mrs reckons its orange! I've recently bought Korean-built basses from Ashdown & Anaconda (yes, still batting for British companies) and whilst they are very good indeed, they are around twice the price of the Profile.

Seriously impressive bass
Saturday, 1 May 2021  |  Katharine

Had my Betsy for about a month now, and I've barely played my other basses. This is a quality instrument, and the set up is great. Slim neck, fast action, wide range of tones, and the EMG pickups sound fantastic.

Like the strings too - normally I use flats but these are great. Service from the Bass Centre was excellent, the gig bag is quality, and the signed copy of Guy Pratt's book is a nice touch.

One of the best bass guitars I've ever owned!
Wednesday, 21 April 2021  |  Adam

Absolutely amazed by the build quality, the playability, and the sounds you can get out of this bass. This walks all over modern Fender instruments that you'd pay over a grand for. I love the EMGs, so powerful and punchy. There's lots of clarity with the tone control all the way up, and the bass warms up lovely when you turn that tone control down.

I've owned many bass guitars in the past and this is certainly something special. It just shows that a quality instrument doesn't have to be expensive! 😊

Fast & zingy

Really fast and a great slap sound, excellent for bending too.
