I got this slightly used for $350 with everything. I was looking for a good deal for my first bass and the guy suggested this over a new washburn POS for the same price.
Its simplicity, Design, Durability, The great deal I got on it
Thin frets, tuning keys loose tune easier than other basses, not much power in the pickups
It is well constructed with a maple neck and rosewood fretboard i dont know what the body is. the pickups are weak and you dont get much volume. two tone knobs and one volume
Although I got a great deal onthis i wish i had got the Fender instead which is what i would reccomend if you have the dough but if not i highly suggest this over the horrible knockoffs (JAY TURSER Etc.)
nothing special to say not very heavy instrument good grip embarrassing thing a growing gap between the strings between the nut and the bridge that can be embarrassing; question grip
some problems with the bridges that have a tendency to unscrew spontaneously resolved problem with nail polish
Holds good agreement in any case
fairly easy to adjust but still requires a fairly high action does not curl
Bah this is the good way
go anywhere, anywhere with a good preamp that I think distorts the sound rather than comply with his departing a bit aggressive
I changed a bit electronics, I defrettée I put ropes flat labella there best but it's still an entry-level instrument
I for one and a half since I start playing after a long break, it remains an instrument of early and initiation and low relief, and the whole is relatively robust
Not on the choice again with the experience for a few more roros I orienterai to a squier vintage example
24 frets maple neck rosewood keys.
2 active humbuckers Ibanez.
4 knobs (tone, a master and a 3-band eq) which unfortunately require to be fixed more securely.
This is the highlight of this low: it is super nice, the neck is super thin and easy access to acute. It is light and gives a good sound regardless of the style with the eq.
The concern is not the quality of the sound itself but rather the fact that the handicap versatility: it is a good bass in all styles, but it is exceptional nowhere. I play in a rock band and I went to a Fender p-bass, more typical but I kept and still plays bass on this, because it is in the best styles.
I use it for a year and I am very satisfied. Its versatility is really excellent and allows you to vary the sound in seconds. Unfortunately it is also a handicap for this low suffers from not having a true characterized although it is very correct.
I use it in addition to my Mexican precision (much better for the Rock but not the same budget) for the pieces drop D or alternate tunings and I intend to keep it .
