I needed this bass for the vintagy stuff i usually play.

Pros:
> The Looks. (it's a bit personal but i think it's important to mention)
> The Finish. I didn't find signs of imperfections.
> The sound. Is what you are looking for in a short scale.
> The Feel. This bass feels great. The neck expecially.
> The fretwork. It was my deepest fear but fortunately is great.They have done a really got job at the factory. I was really impressed . No high or sharp frets and the crowning is top notch.
> The neck. Straight as a arrow and the shape is really confortable. Not to big or to small.

Now the really bad stuff.
CONS:
> The electronics. The volume pot did nothing. After inspection i realzied that the wiring was all wrong. Even the ground wire of the output jack was missing (it's not really necessary because the pots are grounded throught the metal plate but BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY). I rewired it with the standard PBass configuration. Somebody at the factory screw it up badly . THIS BASS SHOULDN'T HAVE LEFT QC in MEXICO. THIS BASS SHOULDN'T HAVE LEFT QC AT THOMANN. I think it's unacceptable on a 900€ instrument
> The bridge. Is installed slightly in the wrong place. The G string is closer to the edge of the freatboard than the E string. Easy fix. I moved the bridge saddles left (1-2mm). The main problem is that the bridge plate has grooves. Now the saddles are out of the grooves.
> The tuners. They are just ok. I expected more from Hipshot tuners. The plates are cut really sharp and sometimes they rattle a bit. BUT they are really precise.

I think it's a good instrument. If you know how to fix it.
If is you first bass (lucky you) don't buy it online.
The quality control was really bad.

The guys at thomann are really great and helpful and I'm really happy with my new bass.
