General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love this bass! Can't believe the sound I'm getting for the price I paid.Excellent value! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It seems to be well made to me. I'm really not a bass guy (main instrument is sax), but I have been playing bass for about 30 yrs.The bass feels good (the neck is bigger than my Peavey Cirrus BXP), and while the Peavey plays "smoother", this thing is much better when it comes to 'poppin & slappin'. This sound rivals a high end bass I played a while ago.Going to have my strings lowered a bit & that should make it perfect! Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The sound, the sound, the sound. Not sure what the little toggle switch does, but I can get that "pop" that I want. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck feels chunky compared to my Peavey. Not too heavy. And, yes the controls are easy to get to. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone is great. I can get that funk sound without losing the fat bottom end.Many different sounds here. Tone is A+ for me. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It looked the way it's supposed to. I got the black. Even though I ordered a scratch & dent model it was pretty much flawless.Real nice looking bass. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? For the price I paid, incredible value! It would have been a steal even if I didn't order the scratch & dent, but I'm glad I did (I saved enough to snag a hard shell case for it & was still under 3 bills. Yay!) Playability How was the action out of the box? The action was not bad.I will have my bass playing guru lower the strings for me & give it a once over, though.
Pretty good bass

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well for the source. As for dependable, I've only played it on week-ends for a month or so, time will 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? The narrow neck, overall balance. The "slap switch" is pretty neat. General Your general opinion of this product. Darned good bass for the money! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Both of the above descriptions define this bass, depending on how you set the controls. The pick ups arent as hot as the EMG's on my Warwick RockBass 5. I may consider getting a set for this bass... Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellant...
Awesome Bass
