"Great Bass"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
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.
Musical Background:
Playing 40 years both casually and professionally.
Musical Style:
All styles but mostly Soul & R&B
