I bought a Prestige 5005E OL 10 month's ago, and I could not get a good sound out of it, panning the pick-ups made chorus-like noise that was very odd, there was no top end and there was an high pitched sound periodically. Send it to Crafton in Sweden for repairs and they made some repair's on it, that made some of the noise go away. But still no top end and the EQ was very weak, I could not adjust the treble and the high pitched sound was still on periodically and because of the repairs made in Sweden, touching the backplate made humming noise . I opened the back of the bass and removed the repairs made in Sweden, went through all of the soldering from the factory and found that some of the wire's was cut too thin and there where some cold soldering made from the factory, I fixed it all and now I have the best sounding Bass with lot of high end, strong EQ and no high pitched sound coming out.

Hope someone can use it :-)
