Just got my bass. It was ready out of the box. Just tuning the strings. Great bass. Lot's of tones and voices. I play rock and jazz and r&b. I can use this bass for all my music. The quality of this bass is amazing solid. Found a blister on the tuning peg for my g string. other than that it is perfect. The setup for this bass was great no need to do any of that. The neck is fast and smooth and looks great. The sound is clear and the B string is tight. (some b strings are to loose and wobble lose it's tone.) All around i will never get rid of this bass.
