Overall: Got this bass about 2 mo. ago. came new in the box. no damage from shipping. Researched this bass for about a year. Most people where satisfied with it. And I am too. Great sound for the price. A bit big. But the sound is big to. I have no trouble in a acoustic setting.Clear clean sounds. Neck is straight. Some fret buzz. Replaced the strings. Put on a set of DR Phosphor-Bronze. Wow like a different bass.That stopped most of the fret buzz to. They could improve the electric pickup. But I bought it for the acoustics. You can replace it for better pickup it. It plays well and easy. Not the best 5 string out there. But for the price i haven't found a better bass yet.

Sound: The sound that comes out is good quality. Your fingers gives it a warm sound, while using a pick will give you a bright sound, it also sound good on thump and pop. Feature: As an inactive pickup it doesn't come out of the amp as loud, but it sounds good. Quality: The bass came perfit with no blemishes. It needs polish and wood oil for the body and neck. THe pickup is an inactive (no batterys). Value: Yes.... Manufacturer Support: I have own Deans for years. They are easy to reach. I have a 79 costom made flying V. I never had my guitar repaired on upgraded because of the great sound. The Wow Factor: It has a great sound that you could use playing live or at home or for recordings. Overall: I'v tried other basses either they didn't sound right or they were too high with the same sound...

Overall: The bass played OK, but had a faulty volume control. I feel that it was just a lemon. Zzounds graciously accepted it as a return, but I didn't want another one, because I don't trust the bass and wouldnt want to be on stage if the electronics decided to crap out in the middle of a set.
