Amazing for the price

Mr K, 07.05.2018
I bought this bass as my first ever three months ago. Wasn't expecting much. Bass arrived, I opened the package and there she was. The neck wasn't set up the slightest (action was extremely low, can't really expect good action from a cheap newly-bought bass) and there were clear and obvious traces of glue from when it was put together.
After a week the pickup (or jack) stopped working and I had to ask for a replacement.
The replacement is serving me well. I had the neck fixed a bit and overall it's a solid axe for a collection or for a beginner. It can also handle down-tuning extremely well (I normally have it at drop D) so it's fully metal-worthy. Might not have the look but definitely has the sound.
One thing I don't like however (this might be my amp) is that the tone seems to be more of a volume-knob rather than a tone-knob.

Pros: nice robust sound,
can handle different tunings without any need for adjustments by string or nut.
Cons: little to no proper neck setup (action),
Pick-up might stop functioning (just ask for a replacement),
traces from when it was built.

Outstanding.

AJTO, 02.07.2018
10/10 - Arrived very well packed. Can't find a floor anywhere, the pickups are bright and punchy but the tone control is very responsive if you want to mellow out your sound. Bought for Home Recording and spontaneous jamming with friends to save them lugging their gear around, but there would be no problem whatsoever gigging with it. I've seen Bass guitars costing two or three times the price that were not as well built. I've no idea how Thomman do it!
