I've owned and played quite a few 'budget' basses over the years and this one stands out. The tone and quality are much better than any Squire I've played, and certainly equivalent to a Mexican Fender. The two piece body is immaculate, with the join only noticeable behind the neck, and only just about there. The only adjustment I needed to make was to lower the action, but the neck is straight and it was even in tune! Would thoroughly recommend.
I bought this as a backup Bass for my normal Fender Precision and am knocked out by it to the extent that it is now used first in a gig rather than the other way round.
The build quality and finish is superb, easily the match for a USA made bass and the hardware which can let down a far eastern guitar is spec'd and manufactured in the US anyway. The body is swamp ash so not the lightest, as one would expect, but the G&L is so well balanced you don't notice the weight at all. Couple that with the combination of a Jazz neck with a P body and for me it's well nigh perfect. Finally the G&L USA Jazz pups, although passive, have loads of meat on them and though a 15 inch rig, massive bottom end.
In a nutshell a great bass for gigging or practice and painless Thomann service - ordered Monday, received Thursday- icing on the cake!
