I BOUGHT THIS BASS AT A LOCAL STORE AND I PAID $300 FOR IT. I WAS IN BIND AND HAD TO HAVE A BASS FOR A JOB OPORTUNITY, SO THEY LET ME GET IT ON CREDIT. I STILL DON'T KNOW IF I GOT BEAT ON IT OR NOT THOUGH.
MY DANELECTRO BASS IS ALOT LIKE PLAYING GUITAR BEING THAT IT HAS A SHORT SCALE NECK. IT'S A VERY COMFORTABLE BASS TO PLAY, AND IS LIGHT WEIGHT TO BOOT. THE ACTION CAME FACTORY SET, AND WAS VERY GOOD. JUST ABOUT RIGHT. I'M FAIRLY SATISFIED WITH THE BASS.
THE STRINGS FIRST OFF WERE NOT TO MY TASTE. I PREFER GHS BOOMERS MYSELF, IT'S ALSO HARD TO FIND SHORT SCALE STRINGS. NOT ALL BRANDS HAVE A WIDE SELECTION FOR THAT. THE PICKUPS ARE NOT AS HOT AS I'D LIKE THEM, AND THE SUSTAIN ISN'T THE GREASTEST. THERE IS A SLIGHT BUZZ WHEN YOU GET UP ON THE FRETS BUT NOT BAD THOUGH.
THE QUALITY OF THIS BASS ISN'T BAD CONSIDERING IT IS A LOW END BASS. THE TUNERS ARE PRETTY GOOD, AND THE KNOBS ALL WORK FINE. THE NECK IS QUITE COMFORTABLE ALSO. SO FOR THE MONEY THE QUALITY ISN'T BAD AT ALL.
I AM NOT TOTALLY SATISFIED WITH THIS BASS, AND AM CURRENTLY SHOPING FOR A NEW UPGRADE. THOUGH OVERALL IT'S NOT A BAD BASS, AND HAS A CLASSIC TONE IF YOU LIKE THAT WITH THE LIPSTICK PICKUPS. THE LONGHORN IS A FAIR BASS FOR BEGINER TO MIDLAND.
Low made in korea
24 frets and an easel with a vintage minimalist wooden blade to adjust the string height.
a volume and tone micro
The handle is very comfortable and easy access to acute.
This leaves very baba is the significant weight, we do not feel so to speak, suddenly we feel grown wings. the neck is fairly narrow but it's certainly not for the slap bass: p
Furthermore, as the pitch is short, we get a very suitable instrument for a guitarist willing to try out the bass without losing its bearings.
I think it is almost a intermediates between a "real" bass and a guitar.
It's a bass that has a strong personality and is comfortable in a directory very old school, rock, surf, with its very characteristic of potato and a hell to pick. is not a low to knit long prog jazz solos, that either, but a low to jump around. It is very forward with his side Twang, punchy and twangy. fingers, the sound can become very soft and finer than many low against by the microphones and electronics prohibit passive sound more modern.
This is an unbeatable low in my opinion in a register but it's about a bassist in 1000 maybe.
that was my first bass, and as a first love that is never forgotten. I always have but I acquired from a fender jazz bass style that is still more versatile and more seat group. I use it always at times because I love its texture and light gives me wings. She also suffered assaults while a beginner bass player without flinching and my ear was formed with it. after 8 years together, I still love him.

Earlier, Korean, 24 frets, 2 pickups lipsticks. I think I have a new version since the bridge is worthy of the name, not a piece of wood ... 2 volume pots + tone, a three position switch microphone. Channel narrow.
But beware, the hardware is really cheap, I had to buy a half cord, the fender that I did not fit into the hole ... the mechanics are clearly those of a guitar ... to change my opinion ...
The neck is super nice, very fine, ideal for the guitarist who I am. Access to acute ... bin there are 24 frets anyway, what to do on bass.
Low light weight is the least we can say ... it's a little toy. Ideal for bass prey to low back pain!
The pots do a great job, he had to say.
The sound is much more than drinking a bass of this price! It was therefore a double surprise:
-The appearance and weight "toy" of the machine
-... which does not matches with the palette of sounds that can be drawn
I use it on an old guitar amp hacked on all sides. This gives a relic of its heat as well as the bass guitar. It's easy, I prefer my Fender Hot Rod ...
The selection of microphones is very well felt, Péchu the bridge, the velvety to the handle, well lots of shades in between. Good old rock with a pick, while the nuances fingers. Velvety total if you play the thumb ...
I like doing stuff with modern sounds to the old, so it's good for me. As seen against the narrowness of the neck, the slap must be very difficult.
Well, I've had two days, I know I lack perspective. Also I am not and this is my first bass bass, but the experience enables me to recognize a good sound anyway. Level and there old school, no problem, it sounds, thanks to these certaienement lipsticks.
Once changed the strings (delivered with ropes rotten!) We pass to the next level. I fell in love with the guitar ... Longhorn version the problem is that I'm left-handed. For those who are upside down like me, do not worry, the change is seamless, thanks to the adjustable bridge first. I feared having to take off the guide ropes ... oh no, Danelectro has everything, he is screwed. screwing and unscrewing so upside down, then, adjusting the bridge, changing strings (essential) and you're done. After that, you just have to find the right position to avoid rubbing the pots ... matter of habit, I'm almost ...
+ the light, the sounds and all its possibilities.
the - the inadequate mechanical, hardware very cheap, but hey, at this price ...
I think this is a low to keep warm at home, I can not imagine resisting the frenetic lives and transport ... she looks a little fragile this little beast!
So here I am with a bass - which I repeat is not my instruments, it makes me quite the case, but it's personal. I will say later if I would do this choice, but for now I'm in love ...
I will also try it with guitar rig via PC to see what happens, then I would give the new
