  • Amazing Bass!!!

    As reviewed by Deyquan on 8/13/2010

    I purchased this bass a couple of days ago and i am absolutely amazed with the quality of this guitar. Ive been playing bass for over a year now and decided to buy a 5 string. Ive look and tested models from Ibanez and peavey, and this guitar sounds equally as good as models for a fraction of the price. The pickups arent active however you can get a monster tone from the active tone adjustments(2 volume knobs and 1 master tone). This guitar also has the best low b string ive ever heard and is perfect for the addition of effects. This is also a very good looking guitar ideal for any type of playing style however, its gloss coated agathis body and rosewood fretboard requires constant cleaning to maintain that "just bought" look. I have no overall complaints for this guitar and i highly reccomend it if your looking to get a 5 string.

    As reviewed by eric del aguila on 7/8/2011

    I got this bass a couple of days ago,and had to wait even longer because it was back-ordered... but it was worth the wait, I absolutely love this bass, another thing i really like about this bass is that its active, ( the newer models btw...) it also has a nice overall tone, with 2 volume and a master tone. I just love this bass.

  • This Bass Rocks!!!!!!

    As reviewed by Andy on 10/23/2009

    I bought this bass for myself on Fathers Day two years ago, and it is still my favorite bass. It has a very easy to play neck, nice and smooth. Plenty of access to the upper register and wide enough even for fat fingers like mine. The action may need to be adjusted a little depending on your style of playing, and it needs better strings but other than that it's ready to go right out of the box. This is a great 5-string and would be worth it at even a much higher price. I have played other basses that were three or four times the price and they just sounded tinny and lame compared to this thing! You MUST consider this bass if you are looking for a 5-string. Well worth it.
