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! 😊

Just a quick message to say a big thank you for the recent (bespoke) Black and Gold Power bass received today - looks amazing!! I've already had it through the amp and it sounds superb.

Thanks for all the help and customer service - couldn't be happier!

An outstandingly good P-bass
Thursday, 1 April 2021  |  Eddie

I have been playing 5-strings for a few years live, but wanted a really good P-bass for home use and recording. The Bruce Thomas really hits the spot. I said outstanding build quality as it seems that a great deal of care has gone into designing this. Then there is the sound! Plenty of tone and thump here, so no need to play with everything turned up to max like many P-basses.. I never expected to find my perfect P-bass in this price bracket. Search over!

Great strings allow for a vintage tone with a modern feel. A quality item and the included cloth was welcome too. Thank you.

Wow!
Tuesday, 16 March 2021  |  Simon

I’d actually been looking around for a Precision but couldn’t find one that felt right, so, after cruising through the Bass Centre website, I came across this, the Frankenstein Bass. I read the spec and, as we were in the middle of a Covid lockdown, decided to take a chance on it. Customer service was excellent!

The big unboxing day arrived. Straight out of the box it was great. With a little tweak to lower the action it was amazing. It's incredibly light (great for those of us who are getting a little long in the tooth!) and well balanced. It sits on the strap perfectly. The neck is smooth and silky.

Now, the important bit – The sound. I plugged it into my live rig (Ashdown Evo III) and rolled the volume up. Smooth, no cracks or pops. It is loud, full bodied, and hot to trot. The pickup is incredibly responsive. Digging in with a pick gets that John Entwhistle 'Boris the Spider' sound. Lots of grind but without losing any of the bottom end. Beautiful! Backing off the treble pot a bit and losing the pick it gets real mellow. Nice. For recording I DI through an Ashdown MiBass. Absolutely no loss of tone or power whatsoever.

I have played a lot of basses over the years from my first Kay’s catalogue precision copy to some heavyweight names with heavyweight price tags.

This bass is one of the best I have ever played.

£499? An absolute bargain.

Are you sure you didn’t miss a digit out of the price tag?
