  1. I don’t see too much extra to warrant the jump in price from a Fender. I mean its a really sharp looking bass, but then again so are the Fender counterparts. I’d still love to give this baby a test drive though!

  2. The difference is better quality parts, wood and workmanship!

  3. I play Pavel (Gibor neck-thru 6) and I own two Fender Jazz basses…there’s a big (positive) difference between the two. You’ll absolutely love the feel of a Pavel!
