Laslo Trask's review"would like two pickups, its got a great neck, a bit neck heavy, i will mod it to my end use."

Typhoon TY B11
i would use this for anything.
has a great neck, light body , i dont think its ply, rather three pieces of alder or something like that.
hard to see the grain properly, given the finish,
and it certainly is long scale. but had good solid piano bass tone, and , since it was inexpensive, i have no problems seeing it as a platform for modificarion, adding pickups, a rickenbacher bridge i think will help rhe balance a bit.i like it.
maybe i got a good one,
| dont buy chinese instruments new, it would have to be a trade of some kind, due to the politics involved.but at $50 in trade value, and the hardware being reasonable, and the neck being GREAT, its a good project guitar.
i had trouble finding anything on the new about these, so thought i would put my two cents worth out there.
I mod and set up a lot of instruments, this will need the action and intonation set up, the truss rod works,, and what else can i say? i have an old richenbacher pickup i am going to add in, and see how i like it.
cheers.

Typhoon TY B11
Made in China. Entry-level Precision Bass-like instrument.
The body is made of ordinary wood. I think it's plywood or some sort of very lightweight wood.
"P" pickup, volume and tone control...20 frets.

USE

The neck is poorly lacquered, the frets bulge a bit, which is very unpleasant. It's pretty lightweight and the color of the body is not only well applied, it's also very nice (it's not all-black, it's a bit diffused; and I also saw it in forest green).

SOUND

I'm not really a fan of the P-Bass sound, but this bass has a decent sound, despite its somewhat run-down look. It's clearly a down-market product, but it sounds better than many low-end models that are (sometimes much) more expensive.
The pickups don't produce much noise, they are quite reasonable in that respect. Plus, they are very clear and you can slap easily. To be honest, it's surprising.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this bass to defret it, to amuse myself and to make myself with a low-cost means to practice playing fretless bass without going broke and without risking too much. It was the cheapest model in the store. I gave it an average mark because it sounds all right, even good if you rush me. But I don't recommend it to beginners: Save a couple hundred bucks more and get a higher-quality model, otherwise you'll regret it very soon...

(Once I defretted it and painted the pickguard black, it not only looks good, it also sounds awesome).

Typhoon TY B11
I didn't know where this bass came from before reading the previous review.

20 frets, neck with rosewood fretboard.
P-bass style pickups
Volume and tone controls

USE

Probably the guy who wrote his review before me bumped into a model that had a defective neck, because the frets on mine are flush.

Access to the upper frets is comfortable enough.

Its weight is all right, it's lighter than most.

SOUND

You can slap fine with it.

This bass is incredible with distortion. It has an aggressive guitar sound with a nice bassy touch to it on the background. I was rather surprised by the sound quality.

The "clean acoustic" sound with a multi-effects pedal is great.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using this bass for 9 months and, being my first instrument, I think it's pretty good.

I love its weight, but I hate the poor quality of the tuners, they are too fragile.

Being a lefty, I didn't have many options to choose from, but this one covered my needs.

I was surprised by its value for money. For less than 200 bucks I could get a bass that sounds pretty good with better quality amps than the one I have.
