For such a low price, I did not expect a lot from this bass. I assumed it'd make a great practice instrument and nothing more.

However, I was VERY wrong.

Upon receiving the bass, the first thing I noticed was the exceptional quality gloss finish. All of the joints were cut for a tight (but not stressed) fit, the build quality and factory set-up was superb and after a quick tune was ready to play straight out of the box!

The acoustic sound is a rich blend of mids, with a low end that's just enough to cut through the sounds of a guitar. Generally the sustain is excellent, until you pass the 12th fret, in which it tends to drop off rather noticeably. The pick-up is not the greatest money can buy, but the built-in EQ lets you roughly dial in the tone you need very quickly. The tuner is fast and accurate!

I would recommend this bass to beginners and advanced players looking for a new toy!

Great bass guitar, for the money you can't beat it! I have played a Steinberger bass professionally for years and know what a good bass is.

The strings are okay, but if you want it to sound great, then put a set of Fender Light Flat Wound Strings on it. I notice that the Flat Wounds project just as much volume as the strings that come with it, but with a much more mellow and bright tone, and they feel real nice on the fingers, too when you are doing slides.

The fret board could be a little smoother, but that's an easy fix, with some fine sandpaper, and some good fret oil - then you're good to go!

The pick-up is pretty good, especially for the price. And, the tuner works awesome!

The quality of wood used on the top could be a little higher, but for the price, it's great! The overall quality I would rate as 5 stars, if it had a spruce top with fewer imperfections. The spruce top is laminate.

The action adjusts very well, and is very good, with no buzzes on the fret board.

It stays in tune very well, and overall is a great bass guitar! You will be very happy with this bass! I would say comparable bass guitars, here in the United States, would cost 3 times the price of this one. And by the way, the shipping and service is great and fast. I got this guitar in 10 days, delivered to Utah, USA. And the shipping price is very reasonable.

You can't go wrong.

I got this to do coffee house gigs and have really enjoyed it. Sounds surprisingly good acoustically and plugged in. Do yourself a favor and install some tape wound strings on it. The included strings were pretty poor and I've never really liked the sound of bronze acoustic strings on an acoustic bass. Far too "clangy" for me. The (Fen*er) tape wounds have a lovely woody character and really make this bass sing. Be advised you will need to make some adjustments to the set up on this to make it play well. The nut seemed to be cut much too high for the fretless version as well as the bridge. Once it was set up, it sounded and played great. Couldn't ask for more given the price. Amazing.
