Remarkable

Richard C. 3891, 05.11.2015
I've had this for 10 days now and it really is unbelievably good value for money.
Mine was set up pretty well straight out the box. It really is a joy to play and the preamp is very versatile - if a little confusing at first. It has a very good range of tones and is incredibly 'playable'.

I've shown it to other bassists who also felt it plays like an instrument several times the price.
I've swapped my strings over to D'Addario chromes which gives me the smooth jazz tones but with the preamp I can still get the rock sound and growl when required. It has rapidly replaced my old favourite 'go to bass' which I never expected.

Normally I carry two guitars around as my band plays a lot of covers so I have to cope with a huge range of styles. But this guitar seems to have enough fullness of sound to allow the preamp to bring out the part I need according to the settings. Most low priced guitars aren't so full so once the tone is changed from their natural sound they either get honky or boomy. This has got deep rich bass when needed and with a couple of tweaks it becomes a growling biter with a sharp precise middle. Slaps really well too as you would expect (I'm left handed but play the bass right handed so I find slap a bit tricky so I got a slap happy friend to play it and it sounded incredible)

Mine is very well made - no flaws - and even with a very low setup there isn't a trace of buzz. I've notice this means that my hands hurt less after a string of complicated songs - and some songs seem easier to play. I guess this may be because my other guitars need a visit to the luthier. But as a workhorse bass I really haven't found anything that gets close.

Also over a hot sweaty evening it does hold its tune really well which is a good sign.

In summary I've paid a lot more for a lot less in the past and whilst there is some hype about this guitar - it really does live up to it. I'm considering buying another one now!

Good bass with neck problems

30.01.2016
I have ordered this bass over Thomman.de in October 2015 and was very excited about it - especially after reading all those positive reviews.
Pros:
the bass has really excellent sound and the versatility of the pre-amp is unbelievable especially in this price range.
The craftsmanship of body, mechanics etc is great.


However the neck on my bass seems to be a problem...
Cons:
At first when I have obtained the bass there was a lot of buzz over all of the neck. Also I have noticed quite strange set up of the bridge. Thus after a week I started setting it up myself. Few weeks have passed without much success - buzz was still there - most noticeable on G string. As i realized I could not set it up myself I have taken it to professional who did some small fret job and raised action on G string to 2.5 mm at the last fret ! Making bass quite stiff and unpleasant to play. + Buzz was still there albeit less noticeable. After a while I have taken it to another expert who did a major fret job and got the action to about 2.2 mm on G string without buzz with soft playing which is kind of acceptable but not really good or even great.


To conclude, the bass is great, but seems that I was the unlucky one that have gotten wavy neck. If this would not be the problem I would have given it 5 stars all the way, but in current state cannot give it more than 2 stars for the quality.
