MJ5 EWC AC "FIRE TIGER" PREMIUM TOP
Momose is the top brand within the Japan company Deviser Guitars which also carry Bacchus.
Momose is named after the master builder Momose Yasuo who has been building basses since the ’70s.
Momose Yasuo builds these basses without CNC machine tools, so it’s all handmade in Japan.
The details in these basses are quite different than the regular Jazz basses just take a look at the beautiful pickguard on this MJ5!
The Momose MJ5 EWC AC “Fire Tiger” features an ash body with a very classy chestnut burl top.
The fingerboard is made of ebony which gives the bass a snappy and focused sound but still you feel the warmth coming out of the precise tone – it’s kind of a paradox of vintage meets modern in a way.
The pickups are Momose’s own hand-wound pickups that work great in combination with the preamp from Aguilar.
The overall sound of the bass is fantastic, but especially the sound of the bridge pickup with some added bass from the preamp is super potent.
