I just received my new Kot CH-3 6-string. I just can't say enough good things about it. I've known Jake for a few years now and he has always been striving for "the bass". I think he has done it! This thing has 3 custom barts on it coupled with a custom Bartolini preamp. It has an active/passive switch & 18 volts of headroom. The controls are volume for each pickup high-end boost/cut treble, mid, bass, a thre position mid selector, and a mute switch for when you have the sound dialed in and it's break time. Visually this bass is a knockout. It has a burl walnut top, a layer of maple veneer, a black walnut body, you put that with a nice wide maple fretboard, a 5-piece maple-pink ivory neck I just don't what else you could ask for. I have owned and played a number of high-end basses and this thing will absolutely bury anything I've ever played. The only thing that would make it better is if it could make me play like Jake.
