This bass feels good plays good and sounds good. If you don't have the money to afford a professional bass then this is good to buy. Its a good starter not a professional bass so don't criticize for its low price or lack of pro tone. One thing I suggest about this bass is to check it for Defects.

I bought this as my first 5 string bass just to see if I would like a 5'er. I would recommend to anyone wanting to purchase their first 5 string, save for an Ibanez, Squier, Schector, or anything other than a Rogue. Now I'm not one to normally bash on entry level instruments, but I have made this bass guitar the exception to my rule. Bad set up, muddy pickups, funky strings, etc, etc, etc. By the time you get a decent set up done, buy better strings, replace the pups, and doing other mods, you could have bought a better quality instrument. Cons: all of it. Pros: GC's return policy. Thanks for taking it back GC. I'm saving for a Fender.

      Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

      I use it to play death metal and that. I like that it isn't heavy as other basses but poor craftsmanship. Has a fret buzz that gets annoying after a while. Came damaged near the head of guitar.

        Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

        I just picked this up at my local GC. My kids ordered it as my Father's Day gift this year. ;) Anyway, I opened it up at GC and it looked great out of the box. Low action, no scratches, dings, dents, or any other problems sometimes associated with items shipped by carrier. I'll get it home tonight and plug it in to see how it sounds. I also have an Ibanez Mikro 4 string (black) and Squier Jaguar (red w black pick guard). I'm a new player after not playing an instrument for 28 years. ( I formerly played cello and drums) I'll pick it and bang on it for a bit and re-post how is sounds later. To all: Happy playing!

        For the price, it's a good starter 5 string. Swapped the stock strings for some Ernie Balls and I'm happy with it

          Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

          I was looking for a white 5 string bass that is not too heavy. This one is not as heavy as other basses i've got. White seems to go with any color outfit i wear on stage. I have a blue Cort Curbow 5 string that i like except that it's blue. I wanted a white 5 string curbow - too bad, not available. So, for the price, this one is perfect.

          I'm don't usually play bass often, I've always been a guitar guy, but this bass is pretty fun to jam on too. It works well with a pick or with fingers. I would recommend it to anyone looking to jam

            Now, I'm no bassist. I'm a flautist, and the bass was for my boyfriend. From what I've heard him play, it creates such a deep, rich sound. It's also pretty to look at and has a solid hold. Aesthetically and quality-wise, I most definitely recommend this bass to others.
