Classic Sound, Classic Look, Great Feel, Poor Quality(electronics)

09.09.2016
I bought this bass a few years ago, but I am reviewing it now for longevity feedback. I only began bass when I got it and things were off to a great start until it failed

The sound is what you would expect from a semi-hollow bass, punchy and bright. I was going through a major beatles phase and this met the requirements me and my band wanted. There is also a lot of versatility with the stock pickups and controls. Everything from Alt to Indie style, it suits. Tuners could have been better, they would feel like I was going to snap them off sometimes if turned a little more when tuning.

The look is great, sunburst finish looks amazing. Felt like Paul when playing.

The feel is also amazing. Lightweight body with a great feeling neck. A gig with this bass was a dream as I could play for hours and forget it was on me.

After 2 years of playing the electronics broke and it would no longer be able to play through an amp. This may have been due to poor craftsmanship or electronics being faulty.

Maybe I got a bad egg, would still recommend.

Well built bargain

23.07.2015
The bass's weight was lighter than expected, which makes it easy to handle and a pleasure to have over your shoulder.

Built in China, it is well made in relation to the low price. The only "flaw" in the finish, if it can even be called a flaw, was some almost unnoticeable unevenness in a few places along part of the binding on the top side, on the body.

In all the respects, the build quality and wood finish are very high for the price and the bass looks extremely nice. There were no flaws in the wood finish, or on the fretboard. The neck looked a tiny bit curved up by the head, but it should be possible to adjust it with the truss rod if it becomes an issue later.

Out of the box, the action felt a little high and may require some adjustment later, but it must be kept in mind that this is another breed of instrument and not a more modern precision-like bass. The string height might take some people a little more getting used to, but it is not an issue for the experienced player. It is partly related to the style of instrument. Then there is the question of whether the strings should be changed later to flat-wounds, but that is up to the player.

The pickups sound very good. The tuning keys are holding so far but look a little small for bass strings. Some people replace the tuners, but I don't see any need for the moment.

If you want to have an authentic-looking Beatles bass for fun, or for playing to their songs for a more genuine sound, this is a very good instrument that won't break you financially. A vintage version will cost you several thousand dollars. The bass will look good on stage, too.

In summary, this bass is a well built bargain. If ordering from Thomann, don't hesitate to take the bundled deal with the case, which is also a good deal.
