Comments: I have EGC #163, an HT Custom bass. Without a doubt, this is one of the best basses I have played. The craftmanship that Kevin puts into his instruments has been discussed in other places, but this a very well built bass, with none of the irregularities mentioned in the other review. This bass was 9-4-07 carved nexted to the serial number.

Sound wise, this bass has amazing sustain, and is much louder than any other bass I've played. Through my V4-B going into two 1x15s, I can get a great growly tone much like other well known players who use TB2000s or 4000s. With the volume lower, it produces a really beautiful, full sound, almost piano like.

I don't have any problem with the weight as I've previously been playing a heavy MIJ Fender P-Bass and a Kramer 450b. I haven't had any neck dive problems, as I use a wide leather strap. I threw some heavier strings than were on there when I got it (heavy gauge GHS boomers), and the action is perfect.

I'm holding onto my P-Bass and letting go of the Kramer, as I can't imagine a situation were I'm going to need a different bass anytime soon.

Comments: I have a black, custom HT with a humbucker in the neck position and a single-coil, standard "TB2000" replica pickup in the bridge pickup.

A very nice bass indeed. Great tone, excellent sustain, comfortable neck. Took a while to set up as the bridge height was tough to get right (I had to send the bridge riser plate back to Kevin at Electrical to get machined) but once this was complete, with a set of fresh Rotosounds, the bass is wonderful.

The craftsmanship is pretty good and it seems to be improving with each new guitar Kevin makes. Mine is a little rough around the pickups with a bit of silicone ooze and holes cut larger than they need to be for the poles, but it is undetectable unless you are looking up close, and it doesn't affect the sound at all. The neck is impeccably machined and polished to a tee. Stable tuning, great bridge, superb electronics.

The humbucker neck pickup is interesting. It taps to two single coils via the volume pot. It has a very early Fugazi, crispy top, deep dubby low, almost active sounding tone when the humbucker is engaged.

I love the single coil pickup on the bridge. It sounds very close to the TB2000 Single coils, but with a tiny bit more bite and volume due to the volume pots being a higher value (I think).

This bass tube Ampeg SVT, V4-B, Traynor YBA-3 or GK 800RB= Growling heaven!
