It gets 5 Stars from me

26.08.2014
I' really can't rate this high enough. Thru neck,natural finish that ticks the boxes for me. When I saw it listed about a month back I was impressed by the features and ordered it straight away.

Four weeks later it was in stock and delivered.Out of the box I was struck first by it's looks then by it's construction.The wood used for the Sycamore front and back is very nice, whether it's a condition at the factory or maybe I was just lucky it added to the already good looks of the bass.The high gloss finish was well applied and the hardware especially the bridge are solid,in fact the whole thing feels solid.
Set up was good, maybe slightly low for my taste but not an issue,no fret buzz or sharp edges.A small adjustment to A and D fixed the intonation and I was ready to plug in.

Input jack is a good tight fit with no crackles and all the pots operate smoothly and again no crackles.Nice defined lows and enough adjustment with the E.Q also I prefer a balance than 2 volumes.No hiss or hum evident.

It balances well and is a good weight,not heavy just a reassuring presence.The neck is a wee bit thicker than my Cirrus and it's slightly heavier.I'm comparing with the Cirrus as they are similar in style.The ebonal fretboard feels good and add this to the way it hangs you've a pleasant playing experience.

Summing up this is a well built bass with decent hardware,quiet electrics and sounds like a bass should.The mere fact that it looks,feels and plays like one at least twice the price is just a bonus.I'd recommend this to everyone.

Thanks Thomann I'm a very happy bass player today.

I played Fender Squiers of other people before, but this sounds better than those. I am very satisfied with the growl and tones coming out of this beast. For the price it was very well setup. (In my case) Immediately playable. The sound of the active pickups is versatile and quit musical, not super but pretty good. It has a nice depth to it. The three band equalizer and mix pot give you a ton of tonal options. You can pull the volume put to set pickups to passive. And then it still has a nice sound, just a lower output. The hardware is very usable, nice tuners that do the job very well. The body has a rustic natural look with a combination of two woods. I like the use of sycamore. Play ability is good and the frets and neck shape, for my long fingers is fine. Good workmanship and fretjob is almost perfect on mine. The roseacer fretboard still sounds fine, but I would have liked real rosewood.

Also some cons: the pots became a bit noisy after six months of use. When I rock them up and down a few times, they become silent again for a week. Probably needs contact spray. Profs would like to replace them at purchase.

For the money, you cant go wrong with this one. If your budget is a bit lower, a cheaper Harley or aSquier or similar bass would also do the job. If you have a much higher budget and demands, look upmarket.

This would make a great beginners bass, studio bass, or a backup for pro bass guitarist. Or, if you play gigs with risk of theft or damage, just bring this cheap one.
