Unbeatable value!

Steve619, 04.08.2014
Very impressed with this! The build quality is simply amazing on both the neck and body. It doesn't feel like an entry level instrument. This is a quality item.

The only reservation I have (which would be simply remedied) is that the pots don't feel perfectly smooth in use. They don't crackle though, they sound smooth, but I'd probably want to upgrade them at some time, maybe.

The other hardware is decent enough. The tuners and bridge pieces are smooth to operate and the pick-ups seem fine. The battery box is much better than the one on my Ibanez SR500. The modern D-shape neck is comfortable and encouraging to play. Its a little wider at the nut than my SR-500 (which is more of a jazz style profile), but its still easy to get around.

As a playing instrument, this bass is amazing. It also has a really good tone range. You could pretty much play any style of music with this.

Well done for Thomann for package and delivery too. Came well packed and reached me in the UK in less than four days. Excellent service.

Amazing Bass

yepmop, 12.06.2017
Got this from reading all the comments so I took the plunge and ordered one.

I've had lined fretleses in the past but wanted to progress to an unlined one but without the expense in case it was not for me.

First impressions are that it's very well built and quite light. The pickups are good and the tone range is pretty good for what you pay. I may at some point change the pots to better quality ones to see how much improvement I can get.

The intonation out of the box was quite good and only a few minor adjustments were needed. I changed the strings to flats so it would preserve the fretboard plus flats have a better tone on a fretless (to me). The action was quite good too, but I think the nut supplied is adequate but not the greatest, but again this can be replaced later.

the only annoying thing is there is no instructions on what each knob does and how to change the intonation and string heights. Yes this can be figured out but time consuming.

All in all, this is worth every penny and more, would thoroughly recommend this bass if you want to dip your toes into the fretless world to see if you like it without risking a lot of money in the process.
