Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Bass"
Overall: I already own an Ibanez 5 string active SR bass and a custom G & L MJ active jazz base. But what was missing from my arsenal was that great P bass sound that only a Fender with a split front pickup could give. This bass gives me that. But on top of that, it also gives me that biting J bass bridge pickup that was made famous by the likes of Jaco. I'm digging the passive tone on this bass, but flip on the active electronics and it opens up a whole new tonal pallet. The bass is well made and lightweight. The build quality is solid. My only gripe is that the mid tone knob feels a little cheap compared to the others. Also, there's no tone knob in passive mode. But besides that, this bass is a solid player and I'm happy with it.
Style of Music: All styles but mostly Soul & R&B

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Solid Bass with great sound"
Overall: I needed to purchase a bass but I primarily play guitar and I didn't want to spend the money to get an American made just yet. This bass gives the best of both worlds with a precision and a jazz pickup. The active switch kicks the sound into high gear and you can control the blend of the precision pickup vs the jazz. The neck feels good and it's a great looking bass. I love the American standards but this bass is definitely worth grabbing.
Style of Music: Indie/Ambient with a little bite to it.
