    "BEST BASS EVER!!!!"

    Sound:
    Better then my last bass that is for sure, I wanted one of these so bad for awhile and I finally got it yesterday, played it, TONE is nice and well balanced, love this bass....
    Feature:
    Just basic, but great control you want treble, you got it, you want dark tone you got it it is all there....
    Ease of Use:
    Neck dives, but I noticed it made me play better cause I have to hold up which in turn kept my fingers from going everywhere like they usually do...
    Quality:
    I don't see this thing falling apart anytime soon.....
    Manufacturer Support:
    I heard they are good, hope they are there when I need them....
    Value:
    Pro sound for $427 after one day shipping that is nice....
    The Wow Factor:
    I HAVE IT!!!!
    Overall:
    You can't go wrong with this bass, a must have, even if it is a studio bass really nice tone and look....

    "Should be called the Beauty and the Beast."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Looking for a thunderous bass that is eye candy? Look no further. this bad boy is beautiful! What a stunning finish with a darker sunburst, high gloss lacquer. I plugged it into a Acoustic B200 and what tone and volume! Unbelievable range for this bad boy toy. The neck is a little heavy and will dive, but I have had the same issue with my Fender. The action was perfect right out of the box. I like the flat neck style compared to the rounded neck on the Fenders. Plenty of places to pluck from or to hang to and pick. The dual Humbuckers give you great range to work with. This bad boy can growl! The photos do not do this bass justice. It is absolutely stunning to look at, and even more fun to play. Your bandmates will approve.
    Feature:
    Bridge and Neck Volume controls for the humbuckers, and then a tone control help you shape the tone you are looking for. Beautiful sunburst lacquer finish. Decent strings, and the action was already set low and fast with no fret buzz right ou of the box.
    Ease of Use:
    Plugged into an Acoustic B200 1x15 this bad boy growled and shook the house, then I tone it doen to some soft mellow jazz tones... great range and options with this bass.
    Quality:
    The thing should be called the Beauty and the Beast, cause it is beautiful, built like a tank, and rocks like a beast.
    Manufacturer Support:
    haven't needed any.
    Value:
    Would have paid twice the asking price for this bass - hands down the best bass in this price range. If you are worried about the neck dive / weight issue - it is really not that big of a deal. It is a little out of balance, but I think it is easily remedied by moving the strap pin to improve balance. You don't feel the bass being out of balance while playing, but if you let go of the neck, the neck will start to slide down toward your feet. Part of this is more due to the body style and length of the neck, as compared to the neck just being "heavy" - and yes the neck will be a little more heavy than most, it is much longer than most. Mine came very smooth and fast.
    The Wow Factor:
    I have had several bass guitars, drum sets, and regular guitars. When my wife saw this come out of the box, she thought it was the hottest guitar she had ever seen. The sunburst lacquer finish is just stunning, it is darker than the picture, but a beautiful brown sunburst. The headstock is black with the same dark brown trim, add this to the extra long neck and the the body shape and this is one sexy bass. Plug it in and turn it up and you will turn heads for sure. This Bass just has that WOW factor.
    Overall:
    This bass is a keeper. Looks and plays too good to need anything else. I'll keep my Fender around, but my guess is the Fender will be my backup to this bad boy.

    "Top Notch Tool"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    I couldn't imagine it sounding better but, I haven't heard that may basses. Clean and bright or deep and oppressive, it'll sing anyway you want.
    Feature:
    The "heavy neck" problem is still there. I'm thinking about getting a "tie on" guitar strap to keep the neck from "diving".
    Quality:
    This is the second of these guitars I have owned. The finish on this one is easily twice as dark as the one I had 3 years ago. On all the promo pics I have seen it looks much lighter. The finish is lustrous smooth and very snazzy: no complaints other that the darkness. You reallt can't tell it's a woodgrain finish unless you are right next to it. All the hardware is sound and tight.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Never had to yelp at them.
    Value:
    This is really a professional guitar, and to buy a pro guitar for $400 is unheard of.
    The Wow Factor:
    I saw the bassist for the Christian SKA band "TheW's" pounding and hammering one of these at a bowling alley concert in Memphis and I was sold. The Thunderbird IV Reverse is both vintage and futuristic, sleek yet buffed up enough for the big boys.
    Overall:
    I can't imagine ever "graduating up" to another bass. This will be my last bass. Only if I master 4 strings and need more to keep the challenge fresh, would I consider changing tools. I love the sound spectrum that this bass can produce, it looks good on me, and played through my Gallien-Krueger Backline/Hartke Transporter hybrid full stack, the vibes can't be beat!

    "One awesome bird!!!!!!!!!"

    Sound:
    Great rumbling tone. Good for hard rock and slap funk.
    Quality:
    Beautiful design and finish.I didnt need to change strings because they were pretty good,but had some buzz for awihle.No blemishes,either.
    Value:
    Incredible price for such an awesome bass. If they charged triple the price it would still be cheap for its quality.
    The Wow Factor:
    I love the colors and finish and design.its really a gorgeous bird!
    Overall:
    This is gonna be my main axe and brand from now on. I love it! Not many ways to make it better.
