  • Awesome Bass

    As reviewed by Eric on 4/9/2011

    This bass is really awesome. From the moment I saw it, i knew I had to have it. The sound is pretty good. The only problem with mine is that the 1 fret on the E and A strings are really weird sounding. I still have the strings that came with it on the instrument. I would advise getting another set of strings. Ask about this ahead of time though. Overall good quality. Worthy for any playing level.

  • Great and prefect

    As reviewed by A.J. Louis on 3/31/2011

    When i went shopping for a short skale bass that was high quality with a low price. Thats what i found in this. When i got home with the bass, i looked ut over and found no scratches or blemishes, just that the binding paint dident blent with the sunburst to well. About a week later, i broke my g string and had it replaced, about a month later, i broke me string. At this paint i changed my strings and i sugjest you do to. The bridge is a bid annoying, i kept getting buzzing sounds from the bridge and had to adjust it with some plyers. Over all i am not disapinted with this bass and i love it.

  • Dang...

    As reviewed by Christian Pace on 3/29/2013

    I had this bass for maybe 4 months and I got rid of it as soon as possible. It was fun to play, but the amount of maintenance I had to go through was unbearable.
