Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "As good as it gets."
Sound: Very responsive pickups. The quality of the bass is very high. It is obvious that a lot of extra time was spent on this instrument, especially on the neck. Feature: The maple fingerboard give the bass a very bright sound which complements the humbucker on the neck position very well. Ease of Use: The neck is very fast and solid. This gives the instrument a very professional feel. Quality: When you pick up this bass you can quickly feel the quality and high caliber of its construction and materials. The woods used work very well together. The electronics are second to none. You will not need to make any modifications to this instrument at all. Value: This bass inspires you to play the best that you can and play a lot more than you would normally play. You won't want to put it down. Manufacturer Support: Never had to contact manufacturer. The Wow Factor: This bass screams high end. People will see and hear that you are a professional. Don't let anyone tell you differently, YOU deserve an instrument of this caliber. Overall: You would be hard pressed if you tried to convince me that a material thing cannot be inspiring after playing this beauty. I've been going to my local music store and playing this baby for days now and I am absolutely in love. After my 5 string Fender Jazz bass Elite this is as good as it gets. I probably won't go another week without giving in and buying one of these. They are definitely the kind of bass that you will keep and play forever.
Style of Music: Classic rock, metal and Classical guitar.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
