Re: Maton MGB4

The MGB4 is active the JB4 is passive. The MGB4 is active but also has a switch to run it in passive mode. The pickups are also different in that the MGB4 uses active "Magnetics" pickups. When in active mode there is one tone control that boosts bass and treble. I find I like recording in passive m...

This thread is making me miss one of the only basses I regret letting go:

Re: Maton MGB4

Hey Craig, the serial number on mine is stamped into the wood on the top back of the headstock. I just pulled mine out of storage, took the photo and had a play. It sounds better than ever to be honest. The pickups always seemed a little too hot for me but I know how to tame them now. Just did a qui...

Re: Maton MGB4

Nice bass :yep I have the fretted twin of this bass. Always thought it would make a terrific fretless. Price us right up there though, even if it is serial #007.

Re: NBD - My first build - The Galleon

Looks absolutely amazing Davin. I love the headstock, reminds me a bit of Ritter but with a twist. The whole design is terrific :thumbup:

Any chance of a demo clip?
