Well, it all started about eight months ago when I first laid eyes on this beauty. Im kinda short so I couldnt reach this amazing instrument, so I asked for one of the tall gents working there to get it down for me. When I plugged it in to an Ampeg amp much like the one I own, the combination was that from heaven. If Jesus played bass guitar he would play this (was my reaction). But unfortunately I could not afford this instrument. Now, eight months later I got my left over grant money which was more than enough. Now I own this bass and practically cream myself when playing it. I enjoy playing metal in my spare time like Demon Hunter, The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying, but I am also in a hard rock worship band like Kutless/ Skillet. (local band, not famous at all). Anyways, after that short story all I gotta say is that this bass is truly amazing. If you have the money, go straight for this bass. Don't mess around with others. Especially if you play metal/ rock n' roll or even worship stuff like me. This bass is great for all styles, I even play some blues.
I played this bass in the store and it was great ,although the strings made a slight buzz noise,it played very smoothly,overall I would suggest it.
This bass is amazing. I've had it for six months now, and it's still like it's brand new! The sound is amazing. This bass will purr, roar, growl, or even scream! It's perfect for any kind of heavy rock, and is actually better for softer music than you'd think. It still sounds good when I use it to play for my church, where we play a lot of David Crowder Band type music. There is one down side though. It goes through 9 volts like a beast! If you leave the battery in for a week, it'll be dead. I'd suggest buying a rechargable 9 volt or disconnecting the battery when you're not playing. It's really not too inconvienient. Oh! Did I mention that it comes with Elixir strings? Yup, that's right; Elixir strings!
The guitar is built well and it looks great, but I thought the action was bit too high. The pickups are great if you play rock or metal, but it may not be the right guitar for other styles of music. The 5th string adds a little more to the guitars tonal capabilities, and for the price difference between this and a standard 4 string it is definitely worth some consideration. The tuner machines work smoothly and the guitar stays in tune very well even if you are an aggressive player. Overall this is a good bass if you want a rock or metal bass, but if you want to play several types of music I would consider something different.
