I freaking love it!
lilalaunenini, 29.05.2020
I ordered several basses from fender to compare (most of them were like twice the price, because it's not about the money here) and I just loved this one the most! The fret is super fast and smooth to play, the jazz neck is a beauty and the sound is really funky and crisp. Playing bass lines is super fun but also slapping and poppin is especially fun with her!
Also, let's not talk colour- that's just lit af.

That being said- I had to order the bass a second time because the first one had faulty frets (buzzing E and A string). But the return and re-ordering worked like a charm and fast even in covid 19 times. Customer service was also great!

Overall I think this is a great bass with the only disadvantage that it is reeeally heavy which could lead to some shoulder pain but I am a strong gal who can handle that.

I will worship it until the end of time <3

Belle basse pour un prix attractif
James Bass, 28.12.2019
C'est une très belle jazz bass pour un "petit prix".
Les finitions sont soignées, le manche propre, bien fini. Le tout à été très bien réglé par le service Thomann (pour un budget supplémentaire de 30 euros que je ne regrette pas du tout).
L'électronique est correcte sans plus mais pour le tarif global, aucune surprise.
Pour travailler à la maison et agrémenter ma collection c'est parfait.
Maintenant elle est lourde, trop je dirai. Je ne pense pas l'utiliser pour du Live. 4,8kg sur l'épaule pendant 4/5 heures pour les sets les plus longs, ca ne va pas arranger le dos des moins musclés d'entre nous ;-)

Super Übungsbass!
Bassbua, 23.06.2020
Ich habe einen Bass für daheim zum Üben gesucht. Dann habe ich diesen hier gesehen. Muss zugeben, die Farbe hat mir so gut gefallen :D
Grundsätzlich wollte ich nicht viel Geld ausgeben. Der Preis hat gepasst und die Lieferung war ,wie von Thomann gewohnt, super! Der Bass sieht wirklich sehr schön aus. Die Lackierung ist wunderbar, das Holz ist schön und ansonsten macht er einen soliden Eindruck. Der Sound ist auf meinem Amp gut und passt. Die E-Saite war mir etwas zu tief eingestellt, also habe ich mir die Saitenlage angepasst.
Lange Rede kurzer Sinn: Ein guter Bass für wenig Geld. Ist aber natürlich keine Konkurrenz zu meinem anderen Jazz Bass (Flea Signatur).
