Great bass in great price.
Aloyzo Cloopa 08.10.2021
For me absolutely great, comfortable, not too big (fits to stratocaster's bag), not too heavy, sounding well, no defects. I use it for my home-records because I need alive sound, not from keyboard.

Zaskakująco dobry instrument
Werni89 17.02.2020
Kupiłem ten bass aby nagrywać na nim podkłady do gitary solowej.
Dla gitarzysty krótsza menzura to zbawienie, gra się dużo łatwiej niż na zwykłym basie. Wykonanie jak za tą cenę rewelacyjne, znacznie staranniejsze niż w czymkolwiek co można dostać w PL do 600zł. Gryf idealnie prosty, akcja strun niska, nic nie brzęczy. Nie mam do czego się przyczepić. Zdecydowanie instrument godny polecenia.

Having read the reviews I was expecting the possibility of problems / issues. So it was with some trepidation that I opened the box.

I can say I was utterly, utterly surprised. So lets start with the aesthetics.

Fit and finish:

It's flawless.

I really have tried to find something negative to report but there isn't anything at all.

The neck is beautiful, quality, one piece construction with a deep rosewood fretboard.

Frets are superbly finished, there isn't one sharp edge, anywhere.

The / body:

Poplar? Feels nice, not heavy, solid and resonant.

The paintwork - it's a joy, it's perfect.

It has a 3 layer laminated scratchplate.

The finish and feel of the volume and tone is excellent.

The bridge and machine heads - all perfectly aligned, good quality, feel solid.

Setup

I expected to need to do 'something', I have never had a guitar that was good to go out of the box. I even thought I would be tied up for hours fiddling and changing settings.

Not a bit of it!

The neck is set perfectly, the string height is spot on, the intonation if dead on.

All I had to was tune it.

Sound.

I am using a Pocket Pod. To say I am happy with the pickups is an understatement.

With my Line 6, anything can sound like anything and there were and are no issues with pickups, volume or tone.

Playability

Well, it's exercising my short stubby fingers which is a bonus but, I can reach and play what I want which is always difficulty for me with a guitar with a long neck.

Short scale does not mean short on sound or depth.

And the feel and finish of the neck is just a dream.

I spent the night tuned for Jason Newstead Cunning Stunts solo with a big, silly, grin on my face.

Sometimes cut price means dubious quality. I honestly have no idea how something so so good can be for sale for so so little.

Bonkers, and I got a long guitar lead thrown in.

How can that not be the bargain of the century.

For the price of a labelled gig bag I got a beautiful bass guitar and I have nothing but praise for Thomann and their own brand kit.

Wow.

Timely update

You know how it is as time passes and the new toy gloss wears off. Yep, it happened. I have to admit with some music (if you can call what I do music) when using my Pod, I am struggling a bit to get anything like a decent output from the bass for certain genres of music.

I really just couldn't get it up there and the reviews I was reading said - CHANGE THE STRINGS. The advice was that the ones that are fitted set are poor quality, they have low output. I was being told to spend some money, spend more money, change the strings.

But, I am from Yorkshire, we as a breed have very short arms and VERY deep pockets.

So, I decided to have a look instead of ringing Thomann

Hmm. The pickup output was spot on at 8.56 so there had to be another reason. Logic kept saying, I shouldn't believe it could be the strings that's bonkers.

Come on, think about it, they are just steel wire vibrating in a magnetic field. So. It if was 'just the strings' playing them harder would have some effect wouldn't it? But it didn't, well, not enough to notice. I needed a longer ponder and then I pulled the pickups. It was an 'argh' moment.

The foam rubber P. Bass pickup support blocks had compressed, they were clearly setting the pickups way too low. Well, way too low (for me).

So, I re-set the screws, gave the covers a pull and bingo - ROARING.

No, before you state something like buzz, crack and sustain, they are not too close to the strings, in fact they are perfect, just like my Les Paul.

I'm ripping it.

So:

SANITY WARNING. DO NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE WEB. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, THINK FIRST. THINK BEFORE SPENDING ON NEW KIT OR NEW STRINGS.

iF YOUR OUTPUT IS LOW START AT THE BOTTOM - loosen the pickups, lift them, set them, until they hit their sweet spot.

Dear Mr Thomann.

Please, do you sell additional / replacement foam blocks or do I have to nip down to my local hardware store for some draft strip.

Thanks.

A Short Bass tale
Nat B. 17.11.2020
Only being an amatuer bassist I wanted a cheap short scale instrument to add to my arsenal.
I am not disapointed, great finish, great sound and great value.
I have already upgraded the strings to the GHS Stainless flatwounds, polished the frets, cleaned and oiled the fretboard, set the intonation to a higher standard than when it came out of the box, made a custom Ash wood pickguard and created a bone nut. I have just orderd some more parts for further upgrades as follows: Gotoh GB10 4L N Bass Tuners - Göldo HW50C 3-D Bass Bridge, both items have been ordered from Thomann. Now you know that I have further improvement plans for this instrument let me tell you why I spent the extra on these parts. When I first recieved this instrument the frets needed zero attention, I polished them because I changed the strings and I could. The pickguard was made purely for aesethetics and to add my own customization. The bone nut in my opinion was a "needed" upgrade because the nut that came fitted was some cheap soft plastic and probably reduced the sustain.
The strings HAD to be replaced because a: I prefer flatwound for the sound and my amateur fingers take less abuse, b: The original strings were terrible! The intonation wasn't actually that bad, I suspect that storage time and temperature change had an effect on the original setup. Which leads me to why I oiled the fretboard, storage time had dried it up somewhat and so a little fretboard oil was needed. Now I have spent some time playing and enjoying a great value for money instrument I feel it's time to add some further upgrades to enjoy it even more. Two of the machine heads (tuners) can be turned by nearly half a revoloution before they actually tighten or loosen the strings, on closer inspection I can see that the shaft of the keys are loose in the mechanism, now I could perhaps bend the whole tuner (machine head) plate to tighten on the shaft and stop the loose action of the tuning key but I'd rather replace them with some top quality tuners and enjoy reliable tuning action. The bridge replacement is mainly because I want a higher mass bridge to hopefully achieve more sustain and to be honest I want a more contemporary look, it isn't in my opinion a necessary upgrade but one I want to achieve a more unique Harley Benton Shorty custom.
I ain't no expert, I can setup a guitar and a bass and I can be honest, if you want my opinion this instrument is a NO BRAINER if you are looking for a short scale bass and for what ever your reasons don't want to spend an arm and a leg you, cannot go wrog with this instrument. Out of the box it will serve anyone and if you want it to serve you better or more it is easily upgradeable and easily worth spending a few quid at the local luthier to get it to perform at a satisfying level.
Next upgrade for me will be either a Tone Rider Pick up or a Wilkinson pick up, both Alnico V but to be honest the ceramic pick up that comes fitted is actually surprisingly good, nice warm sound with the GHS flatwounds I have fitted that punch if you dig in, again it's me being a tart and wanting to customise rather than a necessary upgrade. I hope that if you go for one of these you enjoy the same or similar experience as me!
A good one!
