  • I'm in love

    As reviewed by ATLmusicMAN on 10/16/2006

    The first time I played this at my nearest GC location, I immediately fell in love with it. As tight as it looks, it sounds even better. The tonal range and possibilities are limitless with all the adjustable tone knobs that come standard on this beast! The pre-set action is low, yet doesn't scrub the pickups or the neck with regular finger play. It is very responsive to slapping and plucking as well, I found no dead spots on any part of the neck on this 5 string which is unbelievable! Well worth the money!

  • Best bass ever!

    As reviewed by wordub on 10/26/2006

    I bought the 5 string version. This is a monster with 18-volts of powered precision. With the wide range eq, any and all tones are possible! Well balanced out of the box. Plays like butter. Whether you are smooth on jazz or sheading it or funking it up, this is the bass for all seasons. Improve your bottom line. Well worth the price for American made quality in every note!

  • Excellent bass the TRULY delivers!

    As reviewed by StealthPlayer on 2/7/2011

    I own the 6 string version of this bass in all black Stealth with the ebony fingerboard. First of all, I was never into Music Man basses and was never into their sound. However, I saw the Stealth version and it immediately intrigued me. The design of the bass is a take-it or leave-it with most people. I personally like the design more than what I dislike it. Second, I decided to get the bass and from the moment I opened the case I was blown away! The craftsmanship, finish, playability, weight, and overall feel are IMMACULATE! I mean, it just rocks! Third, the sound is HUGE! This thing is loud! I have had no need to turn the volume knob past 2! The 4-band EQ is genius and a God-send! The fretboard is thin and the best I have ever played for a six string! Fourth, at first the only thing that dissapointed me was the slap sound. I just couldn't really find it when I played it through a headphone amp. I am a tone snob. HOWEVER, I just played this bass at church through my Ibanez Promethean rig running 500 watts and I was hooked! This thing really comes alive with a good rig and the slap sound was incredibly modern and it was one of the sounds I was looking for. I guess this bass really comes alive and shows all its bells and whistles when played live or through a good studio. You will not be dissapointed. This thing is worth its weight in gold and now I'm a believer!
