Average weight, pretty, a little long (the head is large, can cause a problem to cover ...).
It is manufactured today.
The highlight of this bass is its handle. Lightweight, it is enjoyable to play trs, and above all it is fixed thanks a continuation in the body, without the mounting block the Fender. Rsultat: a CASC until the 21th box as easy as any other box (really!). Side of the mdaille: forcment, lack of EHJV in the low and the nut gnralement prs, as with many low-round lightweight ...
Otherwise, a low versatile, easy to play, allowing a lot.
In sound, as prcis aforesaid, the problem is low: the handle is hard to hold the entire string heavy. Rsultat: lack of EHJV in the low register: say below the 3rd position on the strings of E and A. But with a good amp, has spent much trs.
on the other hand, a nickel in his register and mdium acute.
The Tone is present, but not too much (it is a passive).
Minten I have a Stingray, I use less, but I have not sold because it is produced today (at least it is in the catalog Yamaha ...). I use it again from time to time to regain its liabilities, including jazz or song.
I have since ... about 2 years. Before I pass by a Mexican Fender precision deue me ... With the purchase, I had the choice with Fernandez and I have long hsit. Finally, I am a good choice. It cost me 550 euros, c'tait a promo. I would sell, but if the case is Submitted, I would sell more expensive!
In any case, the report qualitprix is excellent, as is often the Yamaha.
Conclusion: if you come across one, try it, was worth it!
