    Second low, why not ...

    Low PLO (Officialy Licensed Product) 4 passive strings Ernie Ball Chinese manufacturing under license. Brand no longer exists at present.

    Fairly thick maple keys handle 21 boxes with access to correct acute.
    1 MusicMan humbucker type in the bridge position, controlled by three knobs, two volume and tone with the input jack on the front.

    1 MusicMan humbucker type in the bridge position, controlled by three knobs, two volume and tone with the input jack on the front.
    Lower overall pretty heavy but well balanced.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is rather round instead focused rock, pretty typical grain with a high volume of output, due to which Humbucker not send wrong. It holds the road well on the serious and the lower midrange, but do not ask him to do more.
    I plugged into a Hartke head, connected to a cab 15 '.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Useful to compare the PLO with a MusicMan U.S., there is no comparison. I say this because I read a lot about it or confuse the two marks was made a little too quickly. The MM2 is an entry-level office with all the advantages and disadvantages that entails.
    Its strong point is probably the sound if it does well on abstraction of a real Stingray. The grain is nice, the overall sound though somewhat limited, is quite rich. To this we can add a distinctive look, a copy of his great American sister, the pretty cool online.
    The weak point, the violin. Disastrous mechanical, unable to hold a regular tuning. The knobs that go on vacation one by one, by unscrewing the shaft. The tether strap loses screws and which moreover can not be replaced by a thicker screw if it is to yours. A pickguard that aged badly, plastic with an unfortunate tendency to warp over time.
    Many negative points, even at a price of this order are not acceptable.

    The final low to be considered but it is not over, for a price that I consider too expensive compared to some models of the same range.
    No, I will not repeat that choice at the moment.

    In Brazilian Music store called Hendrix Music - some R$ 1400 - abt USD 350...

    Sounds great, good cost/benefit. It comes with ernie ball strings, which is very good. Altough it is now as well finished as some other basses I have, It still sounds great, and looks very rugged. The fingerboad is very confortable for me.

    It has some minor faults on it its finish, but nothing really serious.

    Very rugged, well constructed, but as I mentioned before, not so well finished.

    A good working tool for those who can not afford to buy a real Music Man Bass

    I played this bass at Sam Ash on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles for half an hour. It was selling for $229. Later I found a refurbished copy on Musician's Friend for $129.

    The ability to adjust volume on each coil on the humbucker is a major plus for me, since I'm a guitar player without much bass technique and am used to using pickup selector switches to change tone. This also gives considerable tonal variation. I had played a friend's cheap Squier bass and liked the earthy, unobtrusive thud I was able to get, but subsequent tests with both Squiers and Precisions failed to find that tone. I was surprised to find it in the OLP. The Stingray is a classic design, as well, and the MM2 share…

    Made in China -- don't expect much resale value. Durability is also an unknown.

    Seems decent if not great. The pearl blue finish looks good.

    Time will tell whether this bass can last for years the way I need it to, but the sounds I was able to get from it in-store were the best I'd heard in this price range.

    I attempted to buy this bass from Muscians Friend twice, both time when it arrived it was dammaged. I ended up buying it at Guitar Center for about $235

    I love everything about this bass! ESPECIALLY the price. It sounds great, especially the mids. The quality was pretty good throughout the whole bass, and it is an easy bass to upgrade. The neck is smooth and fast, but not super-skinny; it has a more vintage style neck, similar in some ways to a Prescion Bass. The stock bass comes equipped with Ernieball Slkinky strings, and the bass is approved by Musicman.

    The only complaint I would have about this bass is that when I took off the pickguard to install a new pickup (A basslines musicman replacement, make sure you know waht your doing before attempting this. The basslines model is harder to install than some of the cheaper ones) I found 2 missdrilled holes. Other than that, I have no complaints. Another thing was a lack of any sort of instructions.

    The construction is quite nice, and the neck fits perfectly and tightly to the body. Above i mentioned the missdrilled holes. The control cavity and the pickup hole are clean and functional, the electronics simple and easy to see what does what.

    I think this is the best bass avaliable under $300. Heck mabey even $400. I've played alot of basses and none matched the sheer value of this bass. If this bass was priced at $500 when i bought it, I would have not had any second thoughts. The bass is great at plying many types of music.

    I bought this product from eBay for $220. It's also available through Musicans Friend for around the same price. I chose eBay because there was no tax.

    This bass took me by suprise. I was expecting a POS bass that I would have to upgrade everything on. However, after playing for 30 minutes I realised what a deal I'd stumbled upon. The neck plays awesome and there are no dead spots or buzzes. The frets are smoothed so sliding is no problem. The finish is mint and shiny, the action(string height) was perfect from the factory, and all other parts are strong and easy to use.

    After having this bass for about a week I notice three problems. First, the strap pins are coming loose, and the pickup is far from "good". The E string is awful unless you're finger picking. It's muddy and much louder than the other strings. Also, when you slide up the E string it sounds like the world is ending. Finally, the pickguard is very thin and weak.

    This bass is A+ quality and construction for the price.

    Bottom line- better than any other new bass in this price range I've seen. I'm preparing to buy a Seymour Duncan SMB-4D to slap in this thing and a new pickguard so it'll be ready to go.

    Bought it at a local store in Jersey, Channel Islands, UK. Its cost was $240 in US dollars.
    I bought it as a starter bass but it has a lot more potential than I expected.
    Though it isnt as good as its original, the Stingray 4, it can produce some quality sound.

    The finish was perfect and the original strings were Ernie Ball slinky which are pretty good.

    Not as much sustain and punch as the Stingray. No piezo pickups.

    Perfect for the price, and probably the best buy for those who cant afford a Music Man

    This low production is Asia (China or core). It possde 21 frets on a handle big enough for a 4 string bass. Team it with a bridge humbucker and 3 knobs for volume and tonality.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very enjoyable imposing. Used to it quickly.
    Access in acute is correct.
    For it is against an anvil! must have the strong shoulder to take several hours standing.
    The big sound is easy to get too serious, the rglages are simplicity itself.

    I use it for 1 year and I am happy for the price trs (330). Trs good value quality (sound) / price / look (by far).
    Do not look too prs in terms of finishing and assembly of spices but good for the price ...

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is DIFFERENT from what I had on my ibanez sr 800 SDgr, but it is enjoyable and easy.
    Access in treble is good but it's not his strong point.

    The big plus is that you get a good sound easily.

    SOUNDS

    It is a low height for rock (hard rock pop heavy) or the blues.

    - The Plus is its look and sound, cot ngatif hard to find in France only to order! So to try dificil I buy during a stay in Great Britain.
    it is not a musicman but are 900 to cart and really: either the original or the cost too is a relative quality unbeatable price!
    - I tried several bass style musicmann (stagg - Johnson) has nothing to do and the cart is only 150. I tried also (squier jazz bass, and Cort GB34).
    - Excellent quality price.
    - Yes I do it again this choice because I can not afford to pay 1300 for a musicman.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been more or less unless I tate in all directions.
    a report is really very good quality price.
    I tested it in stores at the same time as the sub and the true stinray and Fancher, the resemblance is bluffing and its level, it approaches very height of the sub, but with a bit less even when fishing.
    In résumé, the 450 model with a translucent orange pearloid pickguard withe it's really given it is superb.
    A tent for all those who can not afford a musicman or dbutent.
