Though it may look like one on its surface, the Game Changer Reflex is no ordinary bass guitar. Equipped with the new Game Changer pickup switching system, the Game Changer Reflex bass will give you an unprecedented number of tonal options in addition to the superb playability players are accustomed to from a Music Man bass.
With the Game Changer Reflex four-string bass guitar, players can unlock their instruments' tonal possibilities with the patent-pending Game Changer pickup switching system. Combining any order of pickup coils in series, parallel, in- or out-of-phase gives you access to the most extensive library of never-before-heard tones. Imagine having complete tonal control of your instrument without manually rewiring anything! True to form, the audio signal is never digitized or modeled in any way, providing a transparent analog signal path for the absolute purist. In conjunction with The Game Changer website, you can create, save, and share your tonal selections with the world!
The Game Changer Reflex bass has an ash body with a maple top and mahogany Tone Block. The select maple neck is available with either a rosewood or maple fretboard with 22 high-profile, wide frets. The neck uses five bolts to provide perfect alignment with no shifting, and the sculpted neck joint allows smooth access to the higher frets. Dual humbucking pickups with ceramic magnets and a 4-band active EQ work in tandem with the Game Changer system. Includes case.

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Game Changer Reflex 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:
Immediately after pulling this bass from the case, I could tell it was going to be amazing. I like to judge a bass initially by how it sounds without being plugged in to a rig, and this bass has such a resonance to it! Then, after plugging it in and running through all of the pick up combinations, you can tell that this is a four string you can use for just about everything. The pick ups are big, beefy, and have tone for days! You can get a Stingray sound, a P Bass sound, a J Bass; I was even able to get it to sound like a Wal.
Aside from the sound, the feel of this bass is superb. the neck is slimmer than a typical Stingray, and is a natural finish, making it a breeze to play. The fretwork was particularly well done and the intonation and action were perfect. My only reason for giving it four stars instead of five is that because of the design of the body (it's a single cutaway that doesn't extend very far over the neck), the bass tends to balance a little differently with a strap while standing. If you're used to a P bass or traditional bass design, the bass tends to sit further to one side. With the Game Changer, the neck seems to balance further away and off to the side, so that your fretting hand will seem to rest more comfortably in fifth position (or higher), rather than first position. A small adjustment to make, but the only thing that keeps it from getting five stars. Highly recommended overall, however.
