Quality Jazz Bass
After many years playing guitar I decided finally that I would try bass. I had heard that this model was very good for the money and so I figured it would be only a minimal financial risk for me to buy one.

The package arrived in perfect condition - double boxed and padded with what seemed like 50m of bubble wrap.

I got to say I was immediately impressed with the feel and weight of the guitar. I didn't weigh it but it felt really solid. Everything was in proper order - it produced a beautiful JB tone and stayed in tune. Only a buzz on the 15th fret of the D string (no big deal).

One problem though that bugged me too much. The body was made of 4 pieces of wood which were very poorly matched at the front (in fact they looked matched at the back). The 4th piece was a small oval bit(maybe 5 cm long) piece on the bottom edge of the body that was noticeably darker than the others. It really looked like a defect.

I agonized about whether to return it because it played so well but I decided to do so in the end. Thomann to their credit accepted the return and facilitated the shipping. The process was painless. Top marks to the company for their excellent customer service again.

So a couple of weeks later I received the replacement unit.

This time the body was perfectly matched - and there wasn't even one buzzy fret. Again bridge, tuners (and did I mention the excellent sounding Wilkinson pickups) were all present and correct.

My only complaint about this one is that the neck alignment seems marginally 'off' insofar as the G string is a little too close to the fret ends. Intonation is perfect though and the strings run properly over the pickups polepieces so I'm not sure exactly whats wrong. I can play the guitar without the string slipping but that is because any bends I do on the G string are towards the center of the fretboard. It may be a problem for other players (and it's really only too close on the 3rd to 5th frets). It bugs me and I'll probably loosen the neck to see if I can get it to align perfectly. I'm hesitant though and the reason I didn't return it is that I can play it perfectly so I've pretty much gotten what I asked for.

In summary,

1. A beautiful looking, hefty but well balanced Bass with great pickups, brass saddles and a really quality feeling neck.
2. Theres a chance of quality problems but rest assured Thomann will see you right.
3. Still superb value for money
4. Recommended.

Awesome guitar for the money

An American ash body and quality wilkinson pickups in a guitar that costs £100. Fantastic build quality. You will be hard presses to find a better bass guitar at double the price of this one. We love it. Thank you Thomann.
