zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "the best"
Sound: very good sound and very easy to get the sound you want, with a very simple tone ajustment. Feature: this bass is very simple and very easy to get a good sound the front nob gives you a full fat bass sound and the back nob (back pick up) gives you a bright sound. mix the to ass desired. Ease of Use: could not get any simpler. Quality: very well made. Value: I also own a american deluxe jazz bass, this bass is at least as well made and I honestly prefer it over the jazz bass. I payed about one 3rd the price. Manufacturer Support: have not hade to deal with them. The Wow Factor: nothing special about the looks. Overall: if you want a great bass for a great price and you care more about the sound and playablity than the brand are looks, this thing rocks.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Impressed"
Sound: Very nice aggressive p bass type sound. It is very loud and clear for a passive bass. Mine sounds very very good for recording. Feature: I like the two volume controls. It pretty much does what a volume/tone does, except its novel and cool. The hardware is just as nice as my usa g&l. Mine also came with allot of flame in the neck. The finish is prefect. The pickups are just killer. Probably the best sounding passive pups i have ever heard. Ease of Use: Two volumes, four strigs. Doesnt get any easier. Quality: The finish is perfect. The neck pocket is perfect. Everything is pretty much perfect. Except mine came with the nut cut too low on the "D" string, so it rattles when played open. It also has two high frets. They are not so high that the notes fret out, but they are high enough to rattle much more than every other spot on the board. I have to use high tension nickle strings to prevent rattle. If i were to put some light gauge stainless steel strings on here, it would probably have to get a fret level to be playable. But with stiff .45-.105 nickles its fine. If it wasnt for that, i would give it a nine. no other flaws. Value: I got mine on blowout for $399. I wouldnt pay $599 for this bass though. For the price i paid its awesome. But for $600 i could get a carvin or a used usa fender. Manufacturer Support: G&l is tough to get ahold of. they have pretty poor customer service. I know this from past experience and asking them if they would fix the frets on this bass. They never answered me. The Wow Factor: Its not that cool from the perspective of visual aesthetics. I mean its a nice looking bass, but its not going to grap anyones attention with its looks. But it will grab your attention with its sound. Very nice recording bass. The sound in my head so to speak. Overall: I can see this as my main recording bass for rock music for sure. I dont think i could get a better sound. I could easily use it live too as a "bang around" bass. Its cheap, very nice, and easily replaceable.

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.
