really like this bass
had some string noise at first, but did some small tweeking with the setup and it sounds great. has good highs and nice solid and smooth lowes.
just a nice easy bass to play. just enough basic features to easily get a nice sound out of it for beginners or pros.
Ease of Use
this bass has a nice neck that is easy to work with. a little heavy but comfortable. the passive pups and electronics are simple to use and easy to find the sound that i am looking for
built really well. everything is put together very tight. stays in tune very well. the single coil pups are alittle noisy. fender should put a different type of pups on a instrument of this caliber. will most likely change them. i am using a noise suppression pedal that really helps alot of the humming.
it is well worth the money that i spent for this bass. if it had different pups it would be worth more money.
