What is your overall opinion of this product?
Very smooth, well crafted, great sounding acoustic bass. Very player friendly right out of the box!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Quality is top notch ! Finish is very smooth, electronics are fully adjustable for a variety of tones, frets are finished nicely.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Features are what you would find on a high end product. Even the case is high class on this model.
Are the controls logically laid out?
Controls are logical....even include a phase button.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth?
After a few weeks with the o.e. strings, I put LaBella tape wounds on it so I could get more of an upright bass sound. However, even the strings from the factory had an earthy tone with just enough brightness to create presence, but not harshness.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish is excellent. I wish I had an electric with that neck. Plays like silk.
How was the action out of the box?
I raised the strings a bit because I can be a bit rough when I get wound up. (Breedlove includes shims!!!!) It was a three minute job to get the right height. Impressive!
