Very decent bass and a great all-rounder

DeanoM50810, 28.11.2013
I got this as my first bass, as I'm normally a guitar player. At first the transition from guitar to this bass took a bit of getting used to, as the neck is quite wide. However, this bass has stood up to all other basses I've compared it to in its price range. Not only is it able to do this, it's able to look damn amazing as well. The flame maple top really shines, and I've received many compliments on how well my bass looks when I've played it in public.

Features gets full marks as this bass offers a lot for this price, such as the EQ knobs and the flame maple top. The ESP brand pickups don't bother me too much, and I doubt I'll need to change them any time soon. Sound also gets 5 stars due to the adaptability and versatility of the pickups when the EQ knobs and pickup knob are in use. I don't commit myself to any single genre so this comes in handy. I had to take a star off quality due to the fact that it arrived with some truss rod and action issues (fret buzzing, etc.), but this were fixed quite easily. Everything was in perfect order apart from that.

I believe this bass would be perfect for someone who is like me and needs the versatility. The looks are a great plus, but may not be necessary for someone who doesn't play live often, since there may be plainer, cheaper options available. I'd recommend the bass regardless. Guitar players should consider short-scale basses since it's an easy transition from one neck to another.

Solid

Nemolition, 14.10.2014
I play ESP religiously as a guitar player, however, I write all of my material on bass.

I am very happy with this bass. It has a good solid feel to it, looks great and sounds stunning!

I've equipped a set of Dean Markley Blue Steels on this lil beauty and I cannot fault it. I've re-recorded a few things and I'm not dis-pleased at all.

Playing live with this is also pretty good. It's not top end but for price, it doesnt have much competition.

For a bassist who is looking to start getting into playing live, I would definitely recommend this. My bass player has played around on it and she is also pretty happy with it!
