The five string twin, I received both Godlykes in a trade for my Sadowsky Metro. I’d rate that as a result. As with the four string, it was a supremely well put together instrument with the lowest action I’ve ever seen on a five string bass. Deviser definitely know how to build great instruments. I replaced the stock Gen 1 Godlyke preamp with a Bartolini unit for a slightly different sound. It was a lovely bass with a powerful low end.
I found myself gravitating to four strings solely, over time, and, as I wasn’t really using this bass much any more, decided to ease it on out the door. Fortunately, I sold it to a good friend, so it stayed within the circle should it ever need to be retrieved.
