Poor fretwork, incorrect spacing on saddle notches.
TrEr, 20.09.2019
This turned out to be a bit of a disappointment...

Each saddle have the notches for the strings too close together. This causes the spacing between the A and D to be far too wide and the distance between E-A and D-G to be too narrow. There's no way to adjust this HUGE flaw. It's bad enough to be easily visible at a distance and I'm actually shocked that this passed inspection at the factory!

Luckily I had an spare older Bronco bridge so I installed that one instead. It was a perfect fit and the string spacing is now correct.

If I hadn't happened to have that spare bridge I would have returned the bass for a refund. Since I managed to sort out the problem myself I decided it wasn't worth the hassle with customs (I'm outside the EU).

I can only assume that the saddles for all recently manufactured Broncos have the same problem. I mean, the saddles are probably mass manufactured in great numbers from the same mould and will most likely affect an entire production run of Broncos. If that's the case this model should be avoided until this serious problem has been sorted out by Fender.

I might also add that the fretwork on mine was very poor. I had to spend quite some time doing setup and filing frets to make it playable.

Also, the pickup isn't the greatest but I had already expected that and ordered a Seymour Duncan Cool Rails as a replacement.

It sounds pretty good now and it's a fun little instrument.

Still, I can NOT recommend this bass. There are far better basses even in this price range. Thomann's own Harley Benton range being one of them. And if the problem with the saddles isn't fixed the Bronco is practically unplayable in my opinion.

good for the pice

A really nice low priced shortscale bass for beginners or guitarists, who sometimes want to jam on a bass. The build quality, sound and playability exceeded my expectations for such an affordable instrument.
