  1. good, the T-Bucket sucked.

  2. I’ve been playing the Kingman bass for over a year and have no complaints. What niche is this suppose to fill?

  3. And I also agree the Tbucket sucks.

  4. Yes I have also played my Kingman without any problems. Sounds and plays wonderfully.

  5. 54mm at the nut? that sounds kinda wide to me!

  6. Just bought myself one of these to replace an 18 month old Freshman FA1-BK which is falling to bits after a year of gigging. Surprisingly well made, good finish and great sound when plugged into my Ampeg. Slightly neck heavy and I’m not so sure about the claims of it being a Jazz neck. As for how hard wearing it is; only time will tell…
