Good beginner bass with miserable setup

Markus134, 07.12.2013
I'm not really a bass player, but I've added the JB-75 in the set to play a basstrack occasionally, and to play a few numbers in the band, and I've had the instrument for a few months now.

Visually, the instrument is simply a force! A few insubstantial uncleanliness is absolutely right for the price. The voice mechanics is simple, but robust, plastic saddle (not very high-quality), the simple bridge in price, but in the function flawless. Fingerboard and frets are neatly placed and placed correctly. The pickups I can not really judge; As single coils, they are prone to interference, and have a somewhat cheap effect. The potentiometers are OK and impeccably soldered, but the cables are not shielded, and are limited to separate controls for both pickups and a tone control. The regulator knobs are from cheap plastic (but that can be changed luckily), the jack sockets in low cost, nevertheless, so far no problems at all.

The setup against: miserable! After I had never had a bass in my hand, I wondered how high I had to put the strings despite the perfect neck curvature (> 8mm on the 12th fret!), So that the instrument gives a lot of clean tones without a crack, but I have not thought much about it yet - I have the necessary strength in my fingers. The sound suffers a bit, however, and faster runs are quite difficult.

Recently, I had a properly adjusted bass in my hand, and - oh wonder - that played so wonderfully light that I have made my instrument again. The problem was the throat; After a 0.3mm shim underneath (this should not really be necessary with a new instrument nowadays, certainly not a suitable work for beginners!) I could adjust the strings to ~ 4mm / 12. And now is also my JB-75 perfectly playable and sounds much better, if not perfect: for my ears growling decidedly too little. With my new Squier Deluxe IV it can not measure nearly - but the latter costs almost the triple; You can expect for the small price no professional instrument.

As it is now, playing is really fun. As a beginner's instrument it is quite sufficient, if one does not expect too high expectations of the sound, and optically simply a feast for the eyes. I do not regret the purchase, but I would have a decent setup ex-factory pleased. At least I have learned something.

HB-JB75 SB Vintage Series

Horst aus S., 10.06.2013
Have the bass for a colleague, whom he now does not like - the look!?! Well
Now on the subject: I have the bass only briefly unpacked, tuned and checked for function and the following stated: processing to the smallest negligible paint defects very well, the attitude was best, whether neck warp, string position or adjustment of the TA. The sound was at least equal to my Squier Jazz bass. If I had not already some basses he would definitely come into the collection.

For beginners, advanced or collectors an absolute purchase recommendation.
