General What is your overall opinion of this product? The looks of the guitar are better than shown on the website, and the tone is T-bird-tastic. However, my particular bass came with fret buzz and after several attempts to remedy this the ultimate fix was super high action. I'm not going to put $100 dollars for an expert to put an insert to offset the neck at the neck plate when the guitar only cost $300. I've got some nice wall art, but will never play this bass.
Excellent Bass!

What is your overall opinion of this product? Really nice looking instrument. Plays great. Unique. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality, fit, and finish seems very decent. I can't imagine this bass not working with any genre of music. Very versatile tonal capabilities. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The finish is great. It has a very subtle "greenish hue" within the silver color. Almost antiqued... Slightly distressed look as you can see some wood grain through the finish. Better looking than the photos could capture. Other unique features that impressed me were: covered humbuckers and "witches hat" controls. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It's a little top (neck) heavy, but overall the weight is comfortable. The neck is quick and comfy but this will depend on one's hand size, etc. The controls are simple and positioned in a user friendly manner. I like the slightly raised mid-section of the body; it provides a natural "resting" place for fingers not engaged in picking/strumming. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The price was great on this bass. Playability How was the action out of the box? Mine came with a bit of fret buzz and slightly "off" intonation. Both of which should be ok with a little tweaking. I'm gonna let it acclimate itself for a few more days though as sometimes these issues will "self-correct" once the instrument has a chance to get used to its new surroundings, humidity, etc.
