Excellent instrument, terrific value

23.11.2015
There isn't much to be said: it's a Jazz Bass type of instrument, and there is nothing that versatile ? that is, if you can't do what you want with it, the problem is likely to be something other than the bass.

Great stuff:

The finish is beautiful, the fretwork extremely good, the neck comfortable and the weight reasonable. The stock pickups sound great, and I don't see much sense in upgrading them. The electronics sound great too, although one or two words of caution wouldn't go to waste: when it boosts, it boosts A LOT. Turning a knob more than 25% is likely to yield destructive consequences. I never use active tone controls when I am recording, and almost never when I am playing live ? unless I need to fine-tune something ? so it's perfectly okay for me.

The hardware is nice ? bridge, tuners and everything. The truss rod works flawlessly and it's very effective.

Not so great stuff:

Two things bother me a bit: the first one is the positioning of the active / passive switch, which is a bit difficult to reach. Not a major problem, and it's probably easier than to use a push-pull pot, but I think it could have been better positioned.

Secondly, the fingerboard radius: 7.25" means that there is a lot of curve. Granted, it's not bad per se, but if you have been playing on very flat fingerboard for a while, it does take some getting used to. Luckily, the frets are very well levelled, and even bending is not particularly problematic.

In short, great instrument, totally worth its price, if not much more, and great out the box sound. Minor pet peeves: radius and active/ passive switch.

Not sure what to say

Fuzzwuzzle, 15.04.2017
This is an excellent Bass that I bought to fill in the gaps where my other basses could not, I'm really happy with the range of tone I can get out of this from really low muddy growls with tones of rumble to really sharp cracking highs

I will say that mine didn't come with an instruction book so I had to do a little research on which nob does what but given the age of the internet its not really something I can take a star off for

When you get your bass it will need a need a set doing on it, but given its price I was expecting to have to anyway.

You honestly have nothing to lose with these basses as they can anything you need them to plus, I wouldn't be surprised if we see these starting in the 4 figure mark in a few years!

I would honestly consider getting another one, you know, for the weekends
