General What is your overall opinion of this product? No respect for customer, they do not stand or care about customer. Supervisor no help, lying is the only thing they do best. Proof of item, price, copy, item numbers. Should of honored the printing. Did not care. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Supervisor Harold does not belong in that position. Did not care about the customer. Lying is what they do well. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Bought from another reputable company. They respect the customer and have a great attitude towards them.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Purchased this bass 10 days ago as a back-up to my '57 Fender P-Bass Re-Issue (MIJ). This is a very well made instrument, I was pleasantly surprised with the craftsmanship. This particular series far surpasses not only Squire basses, but the Fender MIM models as well. Also, I have not experienced the "neck dive" issues most basses of the "explorer" shape tend to have. I now have a new #1. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Neck-thru construction, flush mount bridge, active electronics, all great features in this price range...but the feature that has impressed me the most, thus far, have been the tuning machines. I tuned this bass the minute I pulled it out of the box. Since then, I have put close to 30 hours of playing time into it. I have only had to tune the bass once in that time period. Stays in tune beautifully (which was a concern, considering the price point.) General Your general opinion of this product. I have played and owned basses that cost twice as much as this bass, and the Epiphone Thunderbird Pro would embarrass them all. The few things I would change are: 1.) The location of the front strap post. The post sits on the backside of the bass, and thus the bass tilts slightly forward when you’re standing. Not an issue when you are comfortable with what you’re playing, but if you are not familiar with the piece and you need to glance down at the fret board to get your bearings the bass is at just enough of a down angle that you can’t see where you’re at on the lower frets. 2.) You’re pretty much stuck with the pups…I haven’t been able find aftermarket pickups for this instrument. They are certainly good enough for playing live, I would just want a fuller tone for recording. 3.) The stock strings are junk. But that’s it. I give this instrument a 5 star rating because you will not find a better bass in this price range. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is a little on the bright side and a little thin for my taste, but I have to admit that it cuts through the mix nicely. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The most incredibly beautiful instrument I have ever owned. I am a strong proponent of the saying, "It's not yours until you've scratched it." But with this, I would feel guilty about even having dust settle on this bass. The Vintage Sunburst is just incredible.
