Rating and Reviews: Ibanez PCBE12MH

With its mahogany top, back, and sides, this bass projects rich, balanced tone that's great for playing at home, on stage, or in the recording studio.

Overall: We ordered this bass so we could use it in the pickers circle in Luckenbach, Texas and just play without carrying an amp around. It plays great, sounds great, and looks great. It sounds awesome through my Peavey TNT115 too. It even has a built in tuner. WHAT A WONDERFUL VALUE! Zzounds rocks and actually let us pay it out in 4 payments. We love you guys and tell everyone about you.

Overall: Received mine last Thursday just like they said. 2 Days. Bad fret buzz. Replaced the round wound strings with flatwounds, 1/4 turn on the truss rod and she is set. Gotta admit, Had me worried for the first couple of days. Electronics show in Pic is NOT what I got. Kinda disappointed in that fact.

Overall: Very playable out of the box. Made well and sounds good. This was a blemished unit but, I can't find anything wrong with it. I really enjoy playing my bass acoustically or amped.

Overall: I bought this based on the other reviews. This bass is jam packed with amazing features such as horrid fret buzz, tinny sound, a schizophrenic tuner, terrible preamp, and thunderously bad action. With a few cranks of the poorly placed truss rod, I was astounded to find that the action became unbearable, and the fret buzz slightly better. What a trade off! I'm so unhappy I bought it that I might buy another to use as an over-priced giant wooden paddle with which to flog myself!
