I guess it's made in Korea.

24 frets, Bartolini mkII pickup, Bartolini electronics.

The bridge is ok.

3-band EQ (low, mid, high), balance and volume controls.



UTILIZATION

The first time I tried it out the neck felt as slim as a guitar neck. It was not the first time I had this feeling with an Ibanez bass guitar. But with a bit more experience I can say that the neck is not so slim.

It's very comfortable and your hand moves smoothly along it.

Average weight.

The sound is its main advantage: the Bartolini pickup and electronics provide ultra-high signal level!

SOUNDS

I previously had Fender and Musicman but I don't have enough money anymore to buy such models, and considering that I already had a Mexican Fender, which had an average quality, I decided to buy something different and I'm not disappointed because it sounds alright.

I play with a five watt Roland Microbass amp... but it's five real watts!

I get my favorite sound turning the the lows to max. and the mids and highs 3/4 of the way. The resulting sound is exactly like I like it, with some emphasis on the low end.

I like every sound this bass makes.

OVERALL OPINION

I've owned this bass guitar for three weeks. I previously tried out different instruments: a Mexican Fender Precision Special (very bad), A Squier JB Antique Burns (even worst),

a Yamaha BB614 (quite good but its scale was too short and it was too heavy).

I bought this bass directly at a store because I just can't bring myself to buy a stringed instrument on an online shop!

You must first play a bass before buying it! And we must support physical retail stores because they are the ones you can bring your instrument to when you have a problem.

I give it a 9 in all aspects, even though this bass guitar is worth a 10, but just in case you find a small defect!
