My latest acquisition - MIK Jazz Bass Deluxe V

Postby BigDaveOnBass » Mon Oct 22, 2012 9:27 am

I bought this bass from a friend recently. He is currently between gigs and only had it because his employer required him to get a five string for the low B stuff. I finally had a chance to play it and I must say I really like it. It has all the features of the American Deluxe series, has an active/passive toggle, PLUS it is 24 frets (not that I ever play that high up the neck, but it's there if I feel adventurous enough to!) Anybody else rockin' one of these things? My first impression is it's a great value. It looks JUST like this one.

It sounds pretty much like my American Deluxe V, but I like the ability to use the passive/active switch to boost or soften the signal.
