Good starting bass
alemeraldom, 25.10.2017
I bought this bass and had some time to experience with it and I can say that it is a good option for beginners. It is a good build, however, for the version that I bought, I thought that the stripes would be red, instead of dark brown. The strings are ok, but the bass has quite a lot of fret buzz and I will have to look more into it.

Overall, I am happy with it, given that I'm a beginner, but if you want something better and for a longer time (maybe from when you will up your skills), I would go for something in the 250E+ budget. :)

Great Bass For The Money
101Snake, 04.12.2018
I bought this bass after taking a chance and purchasing a B-650. These are great basses with a great look, and well thought out easy to use features. The electronics are very quiet, so no annoying hum when you're up on stage, and even with the most basic of amps the onboard eq means that a huge array of tones are easily within reach. All in all a great bass, ignore the price tag!
