this is a great bass. It is constructed very well with a good sound. The Shorted scale makes it easier to make you way around if you are just beginning are young and smaller with smaller hand. The only thing it lacks is all the bells and whistles that some other basses provide. It is a phenomenal bass especially for the price.
This is the first bass i have ever bought. It is a very good bass to start out with, easy to learn and a smaller build(even thought it is an awkward shape to handle). It has a good plain tone and is sturdy. It definately isnt right for harder rock music, but for music in general its very good. And for the price its a great buy
I'm a 30-year vet as a bassist, and this is the bass that fits me best. I fought for all those years with 34" basses and having to consciously stretch and/or shift my hand around too much, but short scale basses always feel and sound too small. So don't write this off as a beginner bass, lots of veterans play 32" scale basses because that's what suits them. I can easily rip through scales on the Ibanez at speeds I couldn't get close to on my Jazz Bass. This thing has also proven many times that it is built well enough to be my main bass, and I don't exactly baby my gear. It doesn't lack a bit in the tone department either, simple is good. Three distinct tones from one pickup without a cheap pot and tone-sucking capacitor in the way is actually a nice feature, just EQ it at your amp where you should be doing it anyway. It may be a low-end model, but for the price I've been amazed at the tone and playability, and overall quality is very good. Now for the unfortunate part, where the designers totally forgot how to do their job. The mahogany body has tons of great warm tone but the design, while visually appealing, leads to serious weight and balance issues and the neck dive is unacceptable. But there is a very easy fix, and it's free. Moving the strap button to the upper neck mounting screw balances the little beastie out quite nicely, and it feels pounds lighter once it's riding right.
It has nice comfortable feel for a basic bass. I've had mine for about 5 years now and it has never let me down, plus I think it looks better than the other basic bass guitars.
I tought myself how to play bass on the GAXB150, and it was very easy to learn. The short neck makes playing very easy, especially for beginners. Although it's lacking in bells and whistles, it's a great bass for starters.
this bass is very good for a starter. my strings have losened a lot but that is only when it is in its case for a while. my case isn't built for it either. this is a great bass. i've had it for almost 2 years and had no major problems
