I have had my Rogue bass for +/-3 years. After a standard tightening/ adjusting session, I played a gig with this honey right out-of-the-box. I spent the whole night in wonder of the light weight, style, and just plain ole' kick-butt bass sounds I plucked out of this baby.(no pun intended). The original reason I purchased the VB100 is that I was out of town with a Fender Jazz Bass that didn't stand the trip, and a Hofner that didn't make the trip. I went to the "local" music store, and there she was! I just tried her out of curiosity. This bass was light weight, looked great, and played/sounded wonderful. Only a few hundred dollars later I walked out with the bass, a case, some flatwound strings, and a few new cables. The rest is history. I added the strings, added a few touches, and went to work. I have played this baby ever since with no problems. My thanks for allowing me to let other players know this success story with a great little bass.

      Comments about Rogue VB100 Violin Bass Guitar:

      I've been playing bass for 3 years now, and I had an acoustic bass that I would use to help write songs. However when I plugged in the acoustic bass into an amp, the sound quality and chords didn't exactly transer over very well. So I wanted a solid electric bass that sounded great with single notes and chords as well, and I was highly satisfied with this bass. Great bass sound and great treble. Loud and clear and the chords on it are amazing. Right out of the box there was an unholy amount of fret buzz, but all it took was about 5 minutes of adjusting the truss rod to get rid of it. The bridge is also very easy to adjust height as well (just turn the silver wheels to raise or lower it). Bad set up out of the box, but I cant complain for the amazing price, because after I got it all set up, it's everything I wanted and more. Pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend it to others. It also looks gorgeous, in the picture the finish doesn't look all that, but in reality it's beautiful.

      Great feel, but the pickups suck. Only one the pickups worked. This inside of the guitar was caked with sawdust which ruined the electronics. This guitar is not worth the money.

      Comments about Rogue VB100 Violin Bass Guitar:

      I got this because of Paul McCartney, and I don't have enough cash to convince my wife I should spend a bunch of it on a real Hofner. BUT, this is surprisingly good. I didn't expect the sound to be so good on a knock off, I think it has good tone and is a lot of fun to play. Out of the box, it had a HUGE amount of fret buzz, but since I bought it new from Guitar Center, I went to my local guitar center and they gave it an adjustment for free.

          First bass guitar in almost 50 years, always wanted a Beatle Bass, this one is beautiful. Ordered a set of flatwounds but had to return them as regular strings will be too long. Make sure you get the strings for a 34" ball holder to nut.

          I have read a lot of negative reviews about Rogue products. I own three of them two basses and one six string guitar. I have found fit and finish on all three to be excellent. Maybe I'm just lucky. As for the violin bass I purchased it is beautiful. Playable right out of the box, sounded good, frets were nicely finished along the neck, not a sharp edge to be found. there has been some slight fret buzz but nothing that's not easily fixable. I love playing this bass.

              Fit and Finish are immaculate . . . not a blemish in sight. Contrary to some other reviews, intonation is right on the money for all frets. Seems to be well set up right out of the box (pleasant surprise). Have .39-.96 flatwound strings ordered . . . much better for this instrument.

              The Web site and my receipt said this is a Hofner. However, when I picked up the instrument, it was a Rogue.
