not a entry level instrument, this is top quality!

Ybra Lira, 13.12.2018
I have to say that I've been reading and watching reviews about this bass online quite a lot! and there a few things that I never found..

One of them is that it seems that no profesional bass player go and try to buy a bass so cheap as this one!, all that I find is beginners and guitarist who want to have a bass.. and that was my only fear before buying the bass.. because I've been playing bass for more than 10 years but I've been moving around the world and I haven't got that much money to buy expensive gear, so , I have to say that it is way better than I expected!!

I got the oportunity to test it against a
Fender SQ affinity Jazz Bass and
a Sire marcus miller V7

And I must say that the building quality is incredible. it is better than the Squier Affinity and almost as good the Sire. the sound is very very similar between the 3 (the Sire in pasive mode) after this comparison I went to a rehearsal and it stay tune playing for 2 hours.

well.. not all is gold and roses, there are a few things that I have to mention, but for paying 140¤ these are very minor..

the biggest one it is the weight, it is heavier than a Squier but very similar to the Sire. I have a hand luggage Scale and the Harley Benton Jb-75 weight 5.1kgs with the strap . so for some people this might be a problem but it is not to much difference between similar basses. and for the price is very acceptable.

the second things would be, there are a few minor parts that seem very cheap, as the Strap holder, the pick-guard the nut. but you won't be spending much changing these parts.

the last thing is that out of the box it came very dirty, and it needs a few adjustments.

I take it apart, clean it, put it back together and now it's beautiful, adjust the truss rod a lit bit and the saddle and now you can say it worth more than the double!

if you are a gigging musician and don't want to be always worried about transporting your gear in the proper way , or if it get lost in some venue, or get damage. get one of these! it worth it 100%

I bought this as an extra bass to practise when I'm away from home. The neck has a nice feel and is straight. The sound is fine and I'm not noticing any significant hum. The body woodwork is lovely - it looks a lot like my swamp ash Marcus Miller Sire.

The fret ends absolutely need half to one hour of DIY with some masking tape and fingernail sanding boards to make play comfortable.

Being picky: the tuners feel like you need to apply a lot of torque to get the thing up to pitch, especially on the D and G strings. This might be the tuners themselves or the nut or the string tree. Or a combination. So I'm replacing the tuners with some Schaller just because I feel like it. The pickup pole pieces stick out a lot and they're kind of sharp. This is probably just like original Fender, but just a bit janky. I might replace them for that reason alone. I'm also going to try a cheapo high mass bridge, again, just because I fancy tinkering, not that it's absolutely necessary.
