Nice bass, needs some work
Awawa, 20.05.2019
After seeing couple of reviews online, I decided to get this one from Thomann. Classic balanced shape, modern pickups, solid sound for heavier music.
One downside is the quality:
- Fret work is just not good. From 10 to around 14 frets are sharp on the palm side. Oof ouch my palm.
- Fret buzz at around 3-4 fret across all strings. Not the gentle kind which is not audible in the amp. This one is super audible. Probably will need to file down these frets in long run, but temporarily truss rod adjustment helped a lot.
- Truss rod and intonation were miles off. I kinda understand truss rod thing, warehouse, delivery, different temps and air humidities, but it was just way off. Intonation was like 15 cents sharp on each string and required quite an amount of saddle tweaking to get right.
All in all those are kind of expected in price range, but still somewhat underwhelming on an otherwise solid product.
