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.

    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

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

      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.

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

          I bought this bass in metallic blue several months ago with the intention of transforming it into a 10-string bass, five pairs of strings each tuned in octaves. I had to get a new bridge and cut new string grooves in the barrels. I had a new nut professionally cut. I put a set of D'Addario strings for an 8-string bass plus a new .130 B-string and a .050 for the octave B string. I re-did the head stock, by filling the original tuner hoes and re-drilling ten new ones. I also painted the headstock to match the body and put a squiggly metallic blue stripe down the back of the neck. The end result is astonishing. This little bass has held up to the tension of the additional strings. The intonation and action remained low, and I even got rid of a bit of fret buzz on the fifth string. I don't recommend anyone trying this with a lot of prior experience, which I have. I didn't touch the pickups or the electronics, because it sounds great as is and has a very wide tonal range. I don't know about player's taste for the pickups, or maybe I just got an exceptionally good one, but the pickups on my Rogue are pretty darn strong. The bottom line is, this inexpensive bass is built like a tank even for a bolt-on design. I feel it is a very good value for the money.

          I bought this because of the price, it is a nice bass but when you receive it the strings are kinda loose even after tuning it was still loose. After a setup and new strings it feels,looks, and plays great, over all i recommend it if your looking to get a five-string!

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

          As this being my second brand new bass, i love it. The jazz pickups make this thing sound great even with the low string. This bass came with nearly perfect intonation too! Although, the low B string is hard to hear without being plugged in ( because it is cheap wood of course) but plugged in, it's a beast. And mine did come with a cosmetic problem at the headstock from shipping, but nothing to end it for me! Also!! The strings it comes with.. Let's just say I haven't changed them in 4 months and they're still nearly perfect. Nothing on this bass other than I need more since i'm a performing player makes me hate it. I love this thing and don't intend to sell it or get rid of it ever. so... buy it.

          A lot of quality for your dollars

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

          I've have recently started to take my bass playing seriously and I bought a Squire 4 string to help me round out my bass playing skills. As my hunger for bass grew I knew the size of my bass would have to grow too, and I bought a "Ibanez Gio GSR105EX 5-String Bass". It was an okay bass but the pickup on that thing was terrible. Eventually the Ibanez broke down and I scrambled to find a way to fix it. I looked online and I saw that the Rogue 5 string would cost as much to fix my broken Ibanez. I made the decision to buy the Rogue after reading the positive reviews that were attached to the product. To this day I think that has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The bass sounded great as soon as I took it home. Granted it has a few defects, but I would still tell anyone whose looking to purchase their first 5 string "Rogue is the way to go!".
