  1. Black for me, looks great with the burst edges and the neck colour. To be fair all three look very decent though!
  2. The body shape reminds me quite a bit of the Michael Manring Zon Hyperbass. Looks nice!
  3. I have a 'B4 Plus AS RM', in fact the 4 string model of the screenshot from that video. I love it. It's easily the most comfortable bass I've played, is nice and light, and the bartolini pickup/markbass preamp combo does what I need. Admittedly I dont have much preamp experience so I'd defer to others there. Good quality hardware - hipshot machine heads and a solid usable bridge, so the bass sits well on a strap. I find the satin (I think) neck finish very smooth and easy to get around, but I'm sure some people prefer glossy necks. I don't know if the roasted maple board makes any discernible difference sound wise but it looks nice! One very minor annoyance is the small headstock means there is some wiggle room in both standard sized gig bags I own. All in all I'm a big fan!
  4. I have the 5 string version of this, with the double jazz pickups. I'm not in the market, sorry, but for anyone interested I'd say this is a cracking price for a really good bass!
  5. Always loved the look of Rippers. And RDs!
  6. Fair enough, no point keeping something in there you don't enjoy the sound of. Interesting how close to the bridge that pickup is.
  7. Cor, is that an Original series on the right? Bloody cool looking basses I think.
  8. Oooh nice! I have always been quite interested in these lines as one who couldn't afford/personally justify a full fat Overwater. That and I am a massive Rick Kemp - of Steeleye Stan fame - fan and he seems to have played Overwaters for many years.
  9. Beautiful. All the stuff about Chapman the bloke had totally passed me by, but I had seen a similar model in a natural finish online a while back and was intrigued as I'd never heard of the brand until then. The finish on yours is nicer!
  10. Nice! I remember really liking the look of the Blonde Modern Player Telecaster, but that sunburst isn't too bad either!
  11. Thanks for the thorough review, I really like the transparent black with that lovely maple board. In fact that's exactly the colour combo I have on my B4. Good to hear you rate the GB75JH so highly. In terms of my budget and sale prices that seem to around at the minute (hopefully still there when I come to buy), I'm potentially more likely to go for the JJ. Nice transparent amber and blue finishes available, and I believe the same hardware and probably electronics. That's really interesting to hear on the omega bridge string spacing options. Sounds ideal in fact, giving the option to find the most comfortable fit.
  12. After a failed foray into 5 strings a while ago, I'd like another go. I think one of the main issues I found was tight string spacing which I struggled with. I went straight into gigging with the 5 without properly adapting and in the end I traded it on for a 4. I currently own a Cort B4 which I love, and I rate Cort basses. The GB75 JJ has caught my eye. There seem to be some good sale prices out there at the moment, and from what I can tell they have a wide string spacing at both the bridge and nut. I also used to own a MIM Jazz and really liked the sound of the neck jazz pickup soloed. (I get this is a different bass and I'm not trying to replicate the Fender sound I had, but I'm hankering for a jazz style pickup sound again) The reviews I've found of the GB75 range have been very positive, but I'd really appreciate the views of any Basschatters who've tried/own these. I'm not really looking for lots of alternative suggestions though thanks, though if anyone has really strong contenders then do share. I probably won't be looking to buy for a few months, so chances are any good deals on the classifieds might move on by then. Cheers, Edd
  13. Just sold my Squier Fretless Jazz to Simon. Good communication, quick payment, collected exactly when he said he would and we had a good chat about budget basses. I'd happily deal with Simon again. Edd
