  • My first bass guitar

    As reviewed by William Heiberger on 4/19/2013

    After thinking about playing an instrument, i decided on bass guitar and convinced my parents to buy it for me for christmas. I chose this bass because it fit my price margin and is made by a quality company, Yamaha. I bought this at the store and I highly recommend testing out your guitars and amps before you buy them online. Anyways, its been about 5 to 6 months and I am very satisfied with my purchase. There has been no problems with the bass and it will make for a great beginner bass for anyone willing to try the bass. I bought mine at the natural color but it looks a lot more like the root beer because they are all different. Pros and Cons Pros -Not expensive -Larger amount of frets (24) than a normal bass (20-22) -Strings seem okay but you can change them if you'd like to -No sharp fret edges -The knobs are easy to use and the tuning is easy to adjust despite the tuners being covered on the backs -And it looks nice -The color doesn't show fingerprints, but the (tobacco one does) Cons -When I first got the bass, the A string rattled against the bridge, I just took the string off and put it back on, and there have been no more problems

  • Great bass for the money

    As reviewed by John Tabbert on 1/29/2013

    I was looking for a cheap 4 string to mess around with. My other bass is a 5 string. I tried quite a few basses off the rack and kept going back to this guitar. I have to be honest it was not the best sounding bass of the bunch I was sampling and the setup was not good at all, but I wasn't going to hold the setup against it. After getting it home I did a complete setup on it and it played great. The only issue I had was a fret buzz on the G string around the 12 fret. I figured it was a high fret and was going to worry about it after I put some new strings on it. I just put some D'Addario half rounds on and re-set up the bass. Night and day difference in tone. This thing sounds amazing now. It also turned out to be the cheap strings causing the buzz on the G string. New strings and no buzz. I adjusted the truss to .012 at the mid fret and a string height of 3/32nds and it plays like butter. If you are in the market for a low priced quality bass this is a great choice. Won't find another alder/mango bodied bass at this price that plays this great! Just keep in mind when test driving one that it will need a setup and only get better.

  • Best bass for the price!

    As reviewed by Will Scroggins on 12/1/2012

    I have been wanting a good passive bass for a while now and after shopping through many pawn shops with no luck I came to Guitar Center and there it was. It was right in my price range and even better than I expected a bass in that price range to be. I bought this bass the very next day and I am extremely happy with it, being a beginner bass there was a little bit of setup to be done as far pushing down the pickups (the were super high for some reason) and messing with intonation and what not, but after all of that it plays great. I intend to overhaul the electronics and hardware as time goes on but there's really little need to do so because the pickups sound great and the bridge is very sturdy. If you are a beginner this is a FANTASTIC bass and if you have been playing for several years and want a good bass in this price range I would totally suggest picking this bad boy up. You won't be disappointed!
