The results are incredible instruments that compete with rivals in higher price ranges.
I personally prefer some of the craft series to the DX series for example this one in my opinion is almost as good as the DX5AC, it's just the pre-amp is not a bartolini xtct and it is also not as light.
1 piece Maple neck 34" scale.
Fret Board: Rosewood / Maple with perloid block inlays, twenty one frets
Body: 3 piece Ash
Bridge: Gotoh GB203
Machine Heads:Gotoh GB1
Pre amp: Aguilar OBP2
Pick Ups- Bacchus Original
Controls, volume, balance treble, mid notch boost, bass notch boost passive / active switch.
This is a superb bass, the neck feels almost the same as the higher priced Woodlline DX's and is just as rugged, holding action and tuning impressively well. I had the action down to around 1.5mm and it played beautifully. I love the sound of the Aguilar, not so sure if I like the bartolini or this better, it's hard to tell....they both have unique characteristics that I like....best to have one of each probably, but anyway I digress...
I simply love the way this bass looks too, it reminds me of the old Bacchus Strong, which was by and large one of the best basses they ever made (which also fetched a fairly high price in it's day), with it's stylized Jazz body and the 5 dials placement not to mention the beautiful lacquer finish and smart black hardware. It just is so stylish, and the pick guard shape to is way cool! I love it, but I prefer the TF ASH over all so this one I gotta give 9/10
