I picked up this good looking bass at a local music store. I bought it used for only about 120 american dollars, It was my first bass.
This guitar is great for beginners. IT held up very well through learning and is still running through all my use. I used it very often and hard and it still works. It sounds like what you would expect from a beginner bass. It gives good clean sound straight up, and has j and p style pickups for a little extra control. Overall very good price quality relationship
There is nothing particularly wrong with this bass. It is a low end bass for beginners so one cannot expect too much. Obviously no active pickups or anything. The knobs that control volume come off after a long time but are easily glued back on.That is about it.
It is built strong. It has taken abuse and is still fine. No major parts have broken or not worked. The intonation tends to become a little off which is a pain to fix but you can bring it to a store and they will do it, also that really is not that big a deal while you are learning.
IT is a good beginner bass, It does nothing wrong really, nothing specail but a good solid unit for the price.
I always wanted to learn how to play a bass because you only need to play one string at a time. It was given to me as a gift with the starter set.
I thought I was going to have a hard time learning all of the scales and chords but this is a realy easy to play and as a person who has never picked up an instrument in his life I am coming along well.
The only thing I can find wrong is a little buzz sound on the fret and the kit could have come with a little bit more powerful amp.
This is a strong instrument. When I can't hit those rite notes I might give it a litle bump or a drop and it is still playing ok.
This a great bass to start with because of its ease to play. I don't mean to toot my own horn (toot,toot). But I have only been playing for two months and I am not exactly the worst player in the world, infact I am now in a band.
