Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Just purchased this bass yeasterday and it arrived today, American Musical is the best when it comes to fast shipping, the over all qualityof this bass is excellent, coul;dnt find any flaws on mine and it looks like itcost double thasn its going for, well constructed , solid, well balanced, the finish is beautiful and the EMG pick ups and pre-amp sound sweet.As I said in the title, well worth the price.. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Ok once aagain, this model as apposed to the JS modelwhich are the same bass body shape and feel wise, is the electronics, the JS has the Jackson humbucker pick ups and pre-amp, and this model the David Ellefson CBXV has the EMG pick ups and pre-amp, but then again its all a case of preference, the JS is $120.00 dollars less with the Jackson electronics, I gave the features a 4 instead of a 5 because, the controls which are nice, im not complaining, you get 1 Volume control that controls both pick ups, and 1 pick up splitter control for the pick ups, would rather have seperate volume controls for each pick up instead of the pick up splitter control, but its no big deal, and it has a individual controls for treble, midrange, and bass.. General Your general opinion of this product. A very well made and great sounding bass, and very versatile, looks sounds and plays like higher end basses that cost much more, alot of bass at a price that wont break you.. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is killer, this us a very sweet sounding bass. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish on this bass (I have the Quicksilver, is flawless and very high end bass looking, it stands out and catches your eye..
