The Phoenix Custom 5 matches in-your-face sound with fiery style for a bass that excels for heavy music styles. That great sound comes from Seymour Duncan Bassline pickups, Duncan electronics, and a custom big Traben bridge. The Custom 5 gets its hot look from the flame-inspired bridge, quilted maple top, and a two-tone flame inlay that blazes across the rosewood fingerboard.
Traben's unique philosophy for building electric basses centers around their large bridges for bigger, badder tone. These bigger bridges are designed to have more mass and more bridge-to-body contact for added resonance in the body.

i have this and i got to say its the best bass out there the sound is always clean never muddy and i say that the traben phoenix custom is the one for you
I have this bass for 6 months, and just three words: "can't get enough" is awesome to find something that got over the fender american made, the playability is unbeatable, the looks is killer, and the pickups are simply insane, I just can't say enough good about this bass, I have small hands, so a 6 strings bass is not good for me, (anyways I don't need the 6th string) but this one fits sooo good to all my needs when it comes to a versatile bass, I play everything, from Jeremy Camp to Impending Doom and this bass responses amazingly well, even in recordings the sound quality still so great, never moody or distorted, and is affordable too, you don't have to spend a grand to get all this quality and features, so, if you want to spend less than a thousand in a bass, don't look for something else, get this one! highly recommended to any-level bassist.
