We are excited to announce that
Bass Gear Direct is the exclusive importer/dealer for these
beautifully handcrafted basses from the USA.
Both Brian Barrett from LEJ and Chris Benavente are highly
regarded and exceptional luthiers in the industry. They have
outstanding reputations for building custom bass guitars of
the highest quality and standard. What they say is “if you
can dream it, we can build it”.
These basses have been compared very favourably to more well
known high end USA built boutique basses, but without the
hefty price tag normally associated with this class of
Bass Gear Direct is happy to say that these basses are now
available at prices which compare very favourably to US
prices. We are making sure that Aussie Bass Players no
longer need to look overseas to save themselves money to buy
high end gear.
The LEJ Jazz Basses are very versatile and responsive
instruments suitable to all styles of music, either live or
in the studio. They boast exceptional playability and
performance. The sound is very transparent and pure, perfect
for bass players who want to express themselves through
their feel and touch. If you are looking for more than a
“super J” bass, then LEJ might be for you.
The Benavente Basses are “true” modern basses with
their own unique style and character. The first thing you
will notice when you hold one of these instruments, before
you even hear them, is that the players comfort and feel is
the number one priority. They really are a dream!! Then to
go with this, the electronics allow the bass’s TRUE voice
and CHARACTER to come through without colour from the preamp
or pickups. You get a “true flat” response when the controls
are set flat. These instruments are designed to give the
player full control and a wide range of tones.
