For sale this Music Man Reflex 4 made in 2010. This is really a nice bass that sounds great (and huge) but I have just bought a Mike Lull and I have to make choices ...
This is a rather rare bass that is no longer produced. For the story, MusicMan had released the 25th Anniversary series with this particular shape and with substantial prices. These basses had a mahogany tone block and a flamed maple top with a transparent red finish. After that, they made the Reflex, which is the same bass except that the maple top is not figured and the bass is painted. I checked in the neck pocket and there is the mahogany tone block and the maple top.
- Ash body with mahogany tone block and maple top
- Quartersawn maple neck, quite unusual for MusicMan
- 4-band preamp : bass, low mid, high mid, treble, 18V (derived from the Bongo 5)
- Single humbucker (like a Stingray)
- Serial / parallel switch
- Active / passive switch with passive tone
The neck is similar to a Stingray and is straight with a low action. The truss rod operates as it should. Thanks to the ultralight tuners, the bass is very well balanced (weight: 4.2 Kgs / 9,25 lbs). Apart from a ding on the edge, the bass is in excellent condition.
The bass is located in France and comes in its original Musicman hardcase.
