Just got this bass this week. I love it!! It has Europa style electronics and THG bocate knobs. Plays great!!

Bocate '99 Essence

It seems to have a pretty crazy grain compared to other Bocate basses I see here. I love the way the grain looks like waves coming out of the pickups!

Yes, like symbolizing the magnetic fields, very cool. :-)

VERY nice, gorgeous Essence! Awesome figuring, the knobs look great, and the Europa electronics make it an extremely versatile instrument!

Thanks! It plays great. I really love it.

It has Rotosound Nickel Rounds on it now. I am thinking about putting TI Flats or D'Addario Chromes on it instead. The rounds are pretty well worn though and do have a nice sound.

I am still getting a feel for the controls. I think it's a great control setup though and I'm glad to have it set up this way.
