Great buy, regardless of price!
11.08.2016
I've owned this bass exactly one month now, and after playing it every day since I decided it was time to leave a little feedback.

First I have to say I was pleased with the quality of packing and shipping. I received mine 6 days from the day I ordered it. That's 6 days from Thomann to my front door in the USA, amazing! It came double boxed, well packed, and damage free.

I'm still considered a novice bass player. I shopped around for several weeks looking at Squier, Ibanez, Epiphone, etc, before I decided on the B-450. I do not regret my decision in the least! Its a great bass and can easily compete in price brackets far above what it costs.

Pros: Was perfectly set up from the factory. After tuning it I found the intonation, neck relief, and action perfect. It is well balanced. The tone, volume, and balance pots are smooth and noise-free. Frets are well contoured and smooth. The tuners are accurate and have no problems keeping tune. Overall very solid construction.

Cons: The strings aren't the greatest. The tuner nuts needed snugged down after a few weeks of use.

Started learning to play with this guitar and it has served me fairly well in terms of getting started, the overall build quality is very good for an instrument of this price and the sound isn't half bad either my main problem is with the D shape neck which I found caused me some pain in my thumb after extended playing sessions that I didn't experience when playing my friend's C shape neck bass, however, this may just be a problem for me and probably doesnt affect everyone
