Hi to all
I see this Kawai on ebay

Anyone here knows the sound from Kawai Bass?

After I ordered an Alembic SC (will play it with Tenor Strings), I need a second bass for the normal Strings.

What do you mean about Kawai?

Purchased one back in March from basslife.net, you can see the bass I bought along with specs on this bass, scroll down left side of page to basses sold. The one on ebay is a newer one, early 90's has a different bridge vs the older models. Quality is very good, bass is heavy, electronics are OK , a bit noisey at times, not as good Alembic. For the price a very good bass. Noticed on description replaced truss rod cover, make sure no problems
