Little gem at the price

Woodinblack, 31.07.2014
Having had a play on one of these recently I had been very impressed with the sound, so due to the exchange rate and vouchers, I picked one up here, incredibly cheap. I am very partial to the painted headstock which oddly fender don't do on many of their models. I was concerned about getting on with short scale, but at this price I thought it would be handy and very transportable.

Out of the packet the action was pretty good, and didn't require much fiddling. The nut appears good, the strings aren't perfect but good enough and the finish is very good. Black body, black headstock, black pickguard, black pickups. pretty black. J pickup at jazz rear pickup position, P pickup in the normal position. Separate volumes, one tone, none of the normal jaguar switching (no switches at all).
P pickup is clear and deep, J pickup is pretty trebly. Volume and tone controls are progressive and not scratchy.
Neck is like a jazz neck (apart from shorter), and well built.
Machine heads are the normal budget ones and show, bridge is a normal fender old style bass bridge that does the job fine.
Really for the cost there is nothing you could criticize in the hardware, although the machine heads would be the first thing you could want to replace. Weight is very low, although as the body is very light, it is a bit headstock heavy. Due to the overall light weight, this doesn't present much of a problem, especially not with a strap.

This bass really does punch above its weight. There is no indication of it being short scale from the sound, and with a bit of fiddling makes a sound that goes from being not quite a P to not quite a J, but still very pleasing and has a very full bass, although low E is as low as it will go, drop D doesn't work well, at least not on the original strings.

Obviously it is built down to a budget, but it really doesn't show in use and since getting this I have used it much more than I thought it would, as it is a lot more relaxing than the normal long scale basses.

This bass is nice and light and looks absolutely awesome
As a beginner bass or a back up if you want something that won't pull your shoulder out it really is awesome!
