General What is your overall opinion of this product? It's about time Gibson came through wit a bass that will give the "other" American work horse a run for the money. Extremely easy to get any type of sound your want! The pickups are fantastic. Finish is weak, I bought mine for me Christmas 2012, within months Ive worn a thumb hole through the finish. Im cool with it but not the usual Gibson finish. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? As long as you can play it, this bass will give you any sound you need. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? light weight, pickups kill Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? its all good Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? everything Finish How did the stain or paint job look? not a fan of the open grain finish, the paint will wear and scratch easily. I bought it to play it, so it happens. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? excellent value, I will buy another soon. Playability How was the action out of the box? not bad out of the box, slight tweaking

The pickups allow for a wide array and conbinations of sound. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Bass is light and neck is fast.

I can take the tone through the full spectrum from my Rickenbacker to Fender P bass to Warwick Thumb. A lot of sound for a lot less money! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Nice even application, low gloss finish very classy Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? This bass is worth every bit of the price tag which is reasonable. Playability How was the action out of the box? Set up is good out of the box. As a personal preference I adjusted the action and put on a set of D'Addario ebt92 Nylon Tapewound strings.
Amazing and Unique Bass.

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Beautiful bass. The finish was not as smooth as I had expected but the electronics more than make up for the less than perfect finish. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I will use this for all types of music. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The pickups are outstanding. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It rides where it should for optimum performance. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Tone can range from funky to classic. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is right just felt sticky, not satin smooth. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I think this may be one of the better instruments I have purchased. Playability How was the action out of the box? This is fabulous out of the box. It maintains its tune very well.

General What is your overall opinion of this product? I did expect the finish to be smoother and thicker and I would have preferred removable knob tops, but honestly, I purchased the bass to be an easy casual thing to grab so I don't have to feel like if it accidently bumps something, I'll be too concerned, so it works for that and I can get some decent sounds out of it, so it's good. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I haven't had a chance to play in a band with it, but it seems like a bass that would be a good all around fit in the mix, unless I was going for extremes either in highs or lows. Has a smooth middle kind of personality of tone. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? I actually like the shape of the instrument and the weight. I use it with an effects unit so I'm able to get what different tone characteristics I need. The ash body is about twice as heavy as balsa wood. Quite a relief. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The bass neck is fine, maybe just a little shorter than the normal long scale, but not much. This is kind of nice and easier to reach with. Very easy to play and a definite tone shape with all knobs cranked. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? It's a middle-sounding bass with not too much highs and definitely enough lows. I'm able to use what is there and work with it for what I like. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint or stain was thin and the body was textured with the grain of the wood, which I couldn't see, but the ridges and grain features were not smoothed over. The finish is not glassy, but softer and thinner. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The neck work was fine. The action was good. The pick-ups could have had more tension applied from underneath so when you adjust the screws, to raise the pick-ups, the pick-up and screw won't vibrate and create a buzz. I just tightened the screws so it doesn't buzz. I'll probably place some foam underneath in the cut-outs for the pick-ups. Playability How was the action out of the box? I don't want to say too much about it, see above.
