Great bass, amazing customer service
Freddy "Bail Bondsh" Herbert, 29.08.2018
Ordered this bass to learn how to play a 5-string, the build quality is great, feels comfortable, relatively light so no worries about back pain when practicing

I love the classic stingray look, the Jatoba fretboard looks clean, and the weight distribution is great. However, it'll need a setup from a professional luthier because the strings are too high, and the nut will need to be sawn lower. Pretty common with new instruments, so this won't be a problem. There's also a strange resonance throughout the whole bass when the A string is plucked, might be the neck joint or the bridge, but nothing a good luthier couldn't fix. The B string sounds tight, and not weak/flappy like on other basses of this price range. Planning on putting some flatwound strings to achieve a mellow, warmer sound instead of the stock roundwound strings.

Thomann provided amazing customer service, and I can definitely recommend them to any of my friends regarding musical equipments

Thank you!

Sonido clasico de Musicman a bajo costo
NicoRisso, 17.01.2020
No tendrás que vender un riñón para sonar como tus bajistas preferidos!
El bajo es muy cómodo aunque un tanto pesado en comparación con la linea Musicman tradicional.
Simple de ecualizar, se logra un sonido de calidad desde el primer momento que se saca de la caja.
Pastilla doble bobina con alta ganancia y con el sonido tradicional de Musicman.
Totalmente recomendado para principiantes y músicos avanzados.

Bass mit Negativen und Positiven seiten
Tiefgründig:), 31.08.2020
Ich spiele in einer Hochzeitsband und benutze denn Bass bei der Brautentfühung und als Ersatzbass bei größeren Auftritten.

Positiv:
Verarbeitung ist für denn Preis super und die Farbe finde ich auch richtig Klasse.
Klang fand ich beim ersten Eindruck zu Hause nicht so gut. Bei längeren probieren und dann letzten endes auf der Bühne fand ich in für meine Zwecke völlig ausreichend. Er kann druckvoll aber auch bei langsamereren Songs glänzen.

Negativ:
Er könnte etwas leichter sein hält sich aber gerade noch in grenzen.
Neue Seiten muss man auf alle fälle gleich aufziehen.
Fazit:
Als Ersatzbass oder zum neu lernen find ich in das Preis Leistungsverhältnis sehr gut.
