THE bass.

By mad mad matthew

from liverpool, NY

I have owned the 5-string version of this bass for 10 years, and I have to tell you, there is no better bass on the market. The smoothest feel, the most rugged construction (and i've tested it's limits, trust me), the most relatively affordable, and the most versatile tone out there (and it's PASSIVE! No other bass in the world, active or passive, is capable of the incredible variety of tones you'll get from the genius pickup/tone circuit/switching setup)! I would recommend these basses (4 or 5-string) to every player out there. I am currently in the market for a 4-string bass (sometimes you just need 4 strings, ya know?)and am about to purchase the 4-string model Roscoe Beck, there's just no other.

A nice, well-rounded bass

By El Esteban del rocas

from Niles, MI

When I was younger and only had my Squier, I went to the local guitar shop and checked out the 5 string version of this bass. I loved the sound, style, and look of the bass- everything except the low B string. Well, now that I've gotten older and have the money, Im able to buy this bass. So I did. And I love it. Sounds great, long sustain, beefy tone, crisp highs, and full mids. It's a lovely bass
