My favourite bass!

By: Fin on 11 August 2020
I got this bass a few years ago as a Christmas present, and I can say after all that time this has become my favourite bass. I've played thunderbirds, jazz basses, fretlesses, you name it, but this bass, the AVHYB5 is by far my favourite! It really does earn the 5 stars I'm giving it!

This beauty arrived on the first day of lockdown, what perfect timing! It's even better than I had hoped, beautifully built, amazingly playable, fantastic vsrsatile tones. It's honestly the best bass I have ever played.. The Warwick is going into mothballs.

P-J style 5 string bass

A high quality bass that is a joy to play. Out of the box minimal set up was needed. The nut height and action was perfect for me, just a tweak of the intonation and it was ready to play. Didn't find a flaw anywhere, extremely well finished. It has a great variety of tones and easily handles several genres I play. I really like the round wound strings it shipped with, which are also made by Artist, I'll be ordering these. Fantastic bass, highly recommend it.

5 String Bass

I thought I’d try a 5 string bass. What I didn’t expect was this beautiful instrument. Beautiful understated gloss finish over a natural wood colour. Amazing.
