Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very sturdy construction, solid bass. I would try to keep it from falling or banging up against things as satin is a very soft finish.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Neck-through construction is one of the best features of this bass. It's hard to find it on basses in this price range. I love that the bridge is of the rear-loaded type; changing strings is as easy as loosening the tuner and lifting the string off of the bass!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
This bass is in between bright and mellow lol. It can get very aggressive, especially with mid's boosted and the bridge pickup selected.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Probably one of the most beautiful finishes I've seen...especially for a non-custom made guitar. The satin Honey finish over alder and bubinga is absolutely GORGEOUS!! I get compliments all the time about how sweet my bass looks!
