Sound Quality

Sound is Awesome,. All styles, I play mostly Jazz, Funk. This thing is unlike any other Bass I've ever played. Coming either out of a Roland Db500, or a Yorkeville Bm400, with a Boss stereo chorus and a Blue Tube driver. There is virtually no Hum, practically noiseless. Unlike any sound out there,. The E is solid deep, the mids are warm and rich and the highs are crisp and distinctive. A very vesitile instrument,. Again it's good for all styles! Mostly live stuff done is what it's being played for. The sound is what kept me from selling the bass.

Reliability/Durability

The Bass now after hours and Dollars spent might seem like it can last. Hardware is top notch stuff. Finish might be a problem down the road. Strap buttons are tight. The neck is what possibly concerns me the most. Again just spent some bucks on getting it right so well see a year from now if it will hold up. Would have a back up just in case.

General Comments

Playing for Five years. Have two custom Fender Jazz copy jobs that I pieced together thru various means, one with a precision neck the other a warmoth neck. Both are comparable with Sadowsky basses. A Brian Moore I4. And a P/J Gibson style Spector body copy that I'm now currently putting together. I used Seymour Duncan Lightnin Rods and DiMarzio Ultra Jazz p/u's.

Wish I would have asked if the woods are settle and is the neck straight!! If it where stolen I would go to CA myself and make sure it didn't leave the shop till I was completely satisfied.The SOUND!! I've heard a clip cd sent of various styles from the bass but, when I heard it live it just blew me away!! The neck is comparable to the width of a Pensa bass only slighty wider,. Could easily convert to a five string if need be the case. Smoother knobs, better finish, straighter neck. Is what I've would have liked for this bass to have,.

The bass is a few steps away from being a true original with all the trimmings; I guess for the price I was one of the firsts to get a SPK custom. Hopefully later down the line this could be a most sought after product in the long run.
