Brice V2 6 String Bass

Expert Review

Brice may not be in the typical lexicon for bassists (let alone 6-string bassists), but that can most likely be attributed to its source. New Hampshire-based instrument distributor Rondo Music is the chief supplier of Brice’s entry-level axe the V2, but just because it’s not available through most budget guitar outlets doesn’t take anything away from its standard of quality and playability. To start, its resonant Agathis body is topped with quilted maple and transparent finishes that give this axe a shade of elegance. Its bolt-on Canadian maple neck offers stability and comfort, which is important on an instrument that can be as physically daunting as a 6-string bass.

Deep cutaways on the body provide easy access to all 24 frets on this 34-inch scale bass guitar while 2 humbucker pickups are responsible for this instruments punchy tone. Players can adjust the tone further through balance control as well as tone knobs conveniently located right on the body. Finally, the V2 gets an extra dab of pizzazz thanks to die cast gold hardware on the bridge, tuners, knobs, strap button, and neck bolts. At only 9.5 pounds, this 6-string bass guitar is easy to handle and gives quite the bang for the buck.Rating: 4.5/5
