This bass is one of two pilot builds that I had made for me by a Chinese manufacturer. I was going to launch a medium priced version of the Brooks EB-PL. The body and neck are made in China. The hardware and electronics are installed by me in, The Netherlands. This would allow me to offer these bass guitars for a reasonable price.
However, things went a little different. I have decided to abort this project with this Chinese manufacturer. Because I was not 100% satisfied with the communication and the amount of time I had to put in these bass guitars to get them up to my standards.
This bass - which has been meticulously set up and is upgraded with the finest components - has meanwhile been sold.
