Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Perfect."
Overall: I purchased this bass from ZZounds a little over a month ago and I must say I am extremely impressed. You will not find a better Bass. Any Bass guitar that is more expensive then this one will not sound any better and will simply be more expensive for novelty reasons or because they have different hardware. Point is this is everything you need from a bass guitar and it is the perfect price and perfect sound. It sounds incredible, the resonance is AWESOME. When you pluck a string you can feel the entire body and neck vibrate and the note will ring clear for a good minute before it starts to lose volume. The thinner neck is spectacular!! You can move freely up and down and it feels really comfortable on my wrist. The weight of the guitar is well balanced and feels so much lighter than other basses I've played. I would recommend this Bass to anyone and everyone looking for a Great Bass guitar that doesnt want to buy some vintage novelty. This is everything you need. If you want to make it a Standard PBass from fender, then replace the hardware and boom you have a Standard only better because of the weight and awesome feel of the neck.

Overall: I've bought and played basses since 1988 and this is my absolute favorite bass and I have never been able to say that before now. This is worth every penny and the greasebuckets are sweet. You will not be disappointed!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
