Great bass, amazing customer service

Freddy "Bail Bondsh" Herbert, 29.08.2018
Ordered this bass to learn how to play a 5-string, the build quality is great, feels comfortable, relatively light so no worries about back pain when practicing

I love the classic stingray look, the Jatoba fretboard looks clean, and the weight distribution is great. However, it'll need a setup from a professional luthier because the strings are too high, and the nut will need to be sawn lower. Pretty common with new instruments, so this won't be a problem. There's also a strange resonance throughout the whole bass when the A string is plucked, might be the neck joint or the bridge, but nothing a good luthier couldn't fix. The B string sounds tight, and not weak/flappy like on other basses of this price range. Planning on putting some flatwound strings to achieve a mellow, warmer sound instead of the stock roundwound strings.

Thomann provided amazing customer service, and I can definitely recommend them to any of my friends regarding musical equipments

Thank you!

Purely for studio use in my case, this instrument will appeal to those who like a traditional old-school Fender style bass, A cleaner playing technique pays dividends, it is not as forgiving of sloppy technique (like mine!) than a modern style instrument
It has a good throaty growl in the lower register and build quality is good for the price, the knobs and jack socket are solid & don't have any sideways movement.
On the downside, the low B has a slightly lower tension than the other strings which makes it slightly clanky to use, even when you've spent an entire day (like me!) working on the action. Also the tonal variation is quite narrow. It does what it does and perhaps isn't the most versatile instrument out there. But hey, it sounds great as it is & you have to bear in mind the price, it is a budget instrument for a 5-string bass.
In summary, if you're a Precision or Jazz Bass fan, you'll probably love it and it's ideal for a first 5-string.
