General What is your overall opinion of this product? As you can tell from my rating I absolutely love this bass Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Well made, light easy to play and the addition of the sound post makes it hold tune extremely well Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? excellent tone range for a hollow body with a great upright bass sound if you use the right strings Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? light touch, imminently playable Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Not as bright and snappy as a jazz bass but if thats what you want you don't need a hollow body Finish How did the stain or paint job look? beautiful Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I don't think you can possibly match it for the price Playability How was the action out of the box? Just pick it up and start playing. Everybody likes their own little nuances but it plays great as is
