I actually bought one of the prototypes off Neil. Very nice sounding and playing bass. I know he is now onto the second round of prototypes. These are going to be incredible basses.

If you pop on some headphones and skip to the 3:50 mark you can hear the bass in action.

This is a prototype so there will be differences between it and the final product.

That's a good looking bass and knowing the standard of Neil's work this is very exciting. Interested to see what the final price for a production model will be.

A very interesting development.

Love to try one. Even if it's not my taste, it's great to see new Aussie product on the market.

Given the interest in these in the Melbourne Guitar Show thread, I'm kicking this one back up the list.

First up - The Bass Centre has a pic of the five string from the show on its Facebook page.

But otherwise it's exactly the same in shape as the pics just above here, other than the pickups and other electronics. They are still running Aguilar pickups, but a slim humbucker type with exposed poles. It has more knobs as well, volume which doubles as an active/passive switch, a pickup blend, then a tone control for passive. Lower level is three tone controls for active mode (18v Aguilar), I think from memory the mid is sweepable, but check that.

Wood...he did tell me...7 piece neckthrough, carbon fibre reinforced. Body was mostly Bunyah Pine with a range of facings available (can't remember what the one we played was...), and amazingly light.

My daughter had a play while I chatted with Neil, and he seems like a bloke who is really happy with his products and he communicates that with enthusiasm. All made in Melbourne too.

I had a go and I was really impressed. So comfortable to hold, so nice to play, such a great tonal range. The daughter's eyes were like saucers afterward, so I suspect she'll be looking to start saving.
