Frank Bello, a member of Anthrax for over 30 years, was recently fitted with a JP-style active bass. The electronics with active EMG signature pickups generate pressure and assertiveness and are hardly susceptible to ambient noise, indispensable at the volumes that bands of the heavy genre drive on stage.
The workmanship is meticulous and the individual components are coherently put together.
As is typical for Charvel, the user is dealing with an instrument that is very comfortable to play. The slim neck, the fingerboard with a compound radius, the ergonomic design and the optimal ballance are a joy to play.
Charvel currently produces mostly in Mexico and it should be clear that the instruments are not behind the Fender instruments from the same location in terms of standard. There is nothing to criticise about the quality. Thanks to its traditional shape, the bass fits well in the hand and can be played effortlessly in all registers.
