In recent years, a
gap in the market has widened between two categories of electric
basses. On one hand, you have the familiar standards of the large,
corporate manufacturers. On the other are the costly high-end basses
produced by smaller emerging companies. The void between the two
has limited the options of players looking for a quality bass, not
of the garden variety.
like Fender, Gibson, and Music Man have built strong reputations
over many years, their niche in the market leaves little room for
innovation. Also, a "bottom-line" mentality along with
mass production has allowed the quality of their instruments to
suffer. If you're looking for a bass in this price range, you may
have to live with a few defects.
If you're looking
for a bass of higher caliber however, be prepared to pay top dollar.
The smaller U.S. manufacturers who are delivering consistent quality
start their prices in the thousands. For many, this is far too expensive
for a glorified Fender knock-off. We believe the market is greatly
under served in this regard.
