BLOG Entry - 2017 November

I’ve been talking about buying a new bass for a long time (almost all year)….and finally I took the plunge and today (November  10th it arrived)

 

I am now the proud owner of a Status Eclipse Artist Series Limited Edition #50/100 (although I believe only 66) were ever made - 4 string bass. Wow ! this thing is amazing - full graphite neck and a beautiful body. Those of you who know me well are familiar that I’ve always turned to my trusty Kubicki bass whenever its been time to ‘take it up a notch’…but this Status bass (circa 1996) is truly amazing. It is soooooo easy to play - I never thought I would find a full scale bass that is this effortless to play.  And the tone - well it is very versatile and can cover just about anything, but I love the HiFi 80’s sound I can get out of it, This is just an amazing instrument.
