Buy this bass!

Christopher9009, 29.01.2014
Being a beginner bassist, I was on the prowl for my first 'professional' bass guitar, and when I first saw this I was amazed at the design, and at that price it seemed almost too good to be true. Once it arrived, I was impressed with the sleek body and thin neck, with some quality strings with it... There was only problem.
Yes, there is one thing, the electronics cover plate is badly fitted. Although this was a disappointment, especially given that it passed a QA inspection, I did not think it merited sending it back, as I can fix it myself.

The wood finish is as good as it looks in the pictures - solid but light, well balanced, a joy to play, genuinley impressive, great handling and playability with a thin fast neck... Everything about it oozes quality, and at this price, it is a steal!

Slightly dissapointing

09.05.2015
After reading all these rad reviews I was really expecting something good from this bass. Sadly, it is not as good as expected.

The guitar itself is beautiful of course, but the craftmanship is poor - the nuts and bolts were drilled in crookedly, making it hard to take them out and generally making it look a bit sloppy. It already came with string buzz which did not go away after adjusting the truss rod.

Also a major problem is that the first and third string emitted a slight pop in the amp when you let go of them, which is very noticeable when playing on low volume and very annoying. Tried with different amps - it's the guitar's problem.

After about 9 months of playing a 10cm long crack appeared in the body where the battery is located. Note - the guitar was never dropped and never hit any hard objects.

The tone control is pretty good, lots of different tones can be found after tinkering with the knobs.

Overall it's a good guitar for learning the bass, but if you were planning to keep your first bass and use it for more than just learning i'd recommend to save a hundred or more euros and just buy a Fender.
