Revelation bass brand - any experience?

Recommended Posts

Tried a few of the revelation basses when I was last in Denmark street, they all had electrical issues of some sort, I am sure this is just a result of them being used and abused and not maintained by the shops and I am sure that in the hands of the average musician they would hold up fine, is a shame as they were otherwise very nice basses

I have a Revelation fretless PJ which is a lot nicer than it deserves to be for the money. Looks great, nice tone with the Entwhistles, plays very nicely and lightweight too.

Just came across this brand, cheaper than Squier VM or CV, similarly cheap as Harley Benton, stocked by the London's Bass Gallery, I am intrigued: http://www.revelationguitars.co.uk/bass

Anyone has one, tried one, opinions?

Gibson EB3 copy. Purchased one about 3 months ago, I'm over the moon with it. Build quality is probably as good as anything leaving the Gibson factory of late so I hear? To say they are value for money is an understatement seriously.

FYI - bought the 4-string RBN Neo.  AWESOME volume from those passive PUPS, best customer service & support from any importer ever (Sutherland).  Action was slinky when I got it with roundwounds on it; now restrung with flats and this is now the lowest, fastest bass I own, as well as the prettiest.  N.B. - the PUPS were so loud & clear (no electrical noise / problems here) I had to lower them into the body a wee bit.  The pole pieces are the most magnetic I've seen and they easily bend the string if too close.  £299 very well spent - never been tempted by any Fender / Squier "original"....all I've tried have been...erm....somewhat unpleasant.

P.S. - the tirelessly helpful product manager, Kev Lee, did confirm that their website is somewhat out-of-date; the RBN 4-string now ships exactly as the image of the RBN 5, namely painted-as-per-body headstock, block fingerboard inlays & the gorgeous paint job on the body.  BTW, the neck joint is 4-bolted on.
