Great bass for the money

By Tigerclaw_x

from Lake Zurich, IL

Comments about Mitchell MB300 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

Tried in 2 different stores. VERY VERY comfy and decent sounding. Easily a match for most bass guitars in this price range or above. Probably one of the MOST comfortable basses ever played. The sound is great. You can't get a better bass for this money.

Don't recommend it

By Prodigal Bassman

from Kansas City

Comments about Mitchell MB300 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

This is Guitar Center / Musician's Friend "house brand". I tried this bass at the store. It had a shorted out jack and the fret work was truly the worst I have EVER come across. Both ends of every fret was really sharp. I noticed it as soon as I picked it up.

I've played many basses over several decades. I don't like dinging GC but there are better cheap basses available.
