Comments: The greatest sustain and absolutely no dead spots. Have had this bass for 35 years and it is exactly as I bought it. Neck straight as an arrow, extremely responsive to touch and producing tones with same. Indestructible, a bit heavy, but solid as a rock and pure of tone.

Comments: the bass was my uncle's. He purchased it new , and still has it . Yes i have been trying to buy it from him. The only draw back that i have noticed was that when the metal neck warmed up after playing, the notes would sharp the solution was a heat pad to heat up the neck before tuning it. i have a Yamaha 5 string and would gladly trade for a dmz 4001 even with scratches on the body.

Comments: Bought this bass new in 1979 at Guitar Center in San Francisco. Was negotiating to buy a factory second EB-3, but the manager of the store wouldn't accept my price. He did say I could buy a new Kramer DMZ 4001. 32 years later, I still have it in it's completely original form. That should tell you all you need to know. These basses sell used for the same price as a new MIM P Bass. For god's sake, if you are looking for a bass for under $500, buy one of these!

Comments: I just bought a DMZ4001. The Dimarzio Pickup has been replaced by the previous owner with a Seymour Duncan Baselines "Quarter Pounder". This bass is heavy! But it plays great and sounds fantastic. It has a distinct mid range growl that gives it a more aggressive tone than most other basses. I believe this comes from the maple body along with the aluminum neck. This is a quality instrument and I'm amazed that they sell as cheap as they sometimes do. I would easily expect to pay far more for a bass this well made.

Comments: I traded a beloved Ibanez Soundgear for this beastly thing, it was love at first sight. Haven't played another bass since. The tone can only be described as monstrous, and other players actually complain about the sustain, which is never-ending. The metal neck is temp-sensitive, of course, but once you get used to it the pitch shifts are predictable and controllable. Only problem I have had is with the tuners self-destructing - replacements have to be shipped from Germany and cost a fortune. The bridge is a piece of crap but I haven't bothered to replace it yet. Why fix if it ain't...I love my War Bass!
