Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
N/A Haven't had it long enough to tell.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Everything I need, for the most part. The built in compressor is a nice touch, though I am still getting used to it. Maybe a tuner would have been a good idea, and it could be built a bit more "sturdy." Gonna probably need a rack case.
Sound
How is the tone?
FANTASTIC! I have it paired with the aluminum cone speaker cab and it is really nice and clear. Much less muddy than most bass set ups. Cuts through the mix well. I even makes my bottom of the line squier affinity p-bass, which I have as a back up to a back up, sound great!
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
See "sound."
