29.10.2016
I just bought the bass to put a few accents, especially when recording in the studio. This is the first 8-string I've ever had in my hands.

Positive:
The bass is very good in itself, despite the unusually thick neck. The strings are good and with a little practice the playing is also clean.
The mechanics hold what they promise and can also be set quite well.

Negatives:
Small detail, but very annoying: 6 of the 8 strings were not playable in the first fret, since the saddle was so unclean that I could let the strings sing out with little pressure. This should not happen in the price class and in the quality controls.

The equalizer is nice, but quite useless. It is clear that a bass with passive pickups requires more power at the amp than an active one, but when the EQ on the bass is fully turned up, the power is doubled to triple (compare Ibanez to a Hartke LH1000 ~ stage 2-3 ; ESP LTD ~ Level 6-7 for equivalent volume and pressure). If you screw the EQ into other positions, it does not sound like anything.
This restricts diversity.

Another point is that the octave side has an extreme prominence whitening and the actual bass string is almost drowned. Possibly. Is always the case - but for me and my feeling was too much.

Conclusion: Visually nice to look, moderate to poor processing, low-sound and quite powerless. Actually the opposite of the good Mr. Bello. A pity for his good name.
