"I Love This Bass"
With todays procesers you can get as good a sound from this modlen as with the most costly version. It's playablity is fantastic and you won't get shoulder fatuge for this light and comfortable bass. I have compared it to several other basses I own and it is my favorite. It has deep bottom end and crisp high when moving up the neck. For the money you can't beat it. I've been playing for many, many years so I kow what I'm talking about.
I wish they made a 5 string version. The workmanship is a 7 but the electronics could be better. I was getting sone noise from the pickup selection switches but I solved that by replacing it with the more expense modeles switch, very easy changout. There is nor much to compain about concidering how much I paid for it. Just handle with care like you would any hollow body bass and you'll be fine.
Ease of Use:
Plays well after adjustment to the bridge level and intonation, and replacing the strings. Anyone can figure out the feature after 1\2 hr of playing with it. After the switch changeout the sounds from this bass were excellent.
Hey it's a $350 bass but still it looks and feels like a much more expense bass. Since making the changes I mentioned it has never given me any trouble at all. I love it.
Sale person I dealt with didn't have much experience in basses. But overal the service was as good as anywhere.
Very good Value but the should throw in a gig bag.
The Wow Factor:
The girls love this bass.
Ask me after a couple more years. Right now it's my favorite bass, no shoulder fatue and great sound. We'll see hoe it hold up.
