I got this for Christmas and have to say I love it. I have played a few other basses (Fenders and such). The back of the neck is unfinished and you pretty much have to restring it. But after cleaning it up a bit she can really shine!
I've been playing bass for a couple years now and was looking to upgrade to a 5 string. I already own a Dean Zone XM and I have also assembled my own from a kit so I wasn't worried about having to try to work on an imperfection. To my surprise, there isn't anything wrong with it. The only bad thing I could mention is the fact that the neck is bare... I mean just a well sanded neck without finish so I ended up waxing it - simple fix. That aside, it is a beautiful bass and you can't beat the price considering it has 2 pickups and a tone and volume knob for each. Only reason I would recommend dishing out extra money is if you're in a band and will be using it for shows, then I recommend trying it before buying.
This was my first 5 string bass I ever bought. When I bought this I was excited to test it out and when I did it sounded Amazing! The board feels smooth the color looks nice and for the low price it's unbelievable. When I got mine, I started to see some defects on it. The output jack in it was loose and the top part was chipped. I tried fixing the loose output jack and tightened it too but it would always come loose again. The chipped part can't be repaired which was sad the the tops over the Tuning machines which I had the same problem with my old Bass. The strings that came with it are ok but overtime loose their tone and constant tuning is needed. If I were you Check the bass for defects.
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.
