General What is your overall opinion of this product? I had to go with a two star review but only because, despite the beauty and potential great sound, mine got to me in a not-so-great condition. There are dead spots on the second, sixth, and ninth "frets" not allowing me to play the first, fourth, fifth, and eighth frets. It plays great if i capo it on five but who wants to throw a capo on a bass?! Not me. I got a bass specifically to write doom metal and it won't play open because the stings (peaking of the strings themselves, my G string broke within a quarter crank of the tuning knob. And I even let the guitar acclimate to its new climate in a hard case for three days before i even touched it) are essentially, resting on the neck up to the fifth fret.. And Im the type of dude that likes some dirty lows. I don't wanna HAVE to play up high. Im gonna give AMS another shot by trading this one in for a new one but if the new one comes in in the condition this one did, I most likely won't purchase through AMS again. :(
Great buy..

What is your overall opinion of this product? Well balanced and not very heavy which translates to more play time. My 6 string is an 11 lbs beast so playing a lighter bass is easier on the back. I did, however, have to bring it in to have the neck adjusted due to a lot of buzz and dead spots. Other than that this a great bass for those who are looking to break into the fretless bass for under $500.00 (I purchased a "damaged" model which had a slight ding that I had trouble finding)
awesome!
