This bass is amazing for the price. Build quality, playability and sound are top notch. Torino green is a great color too.

"nice little bass for the money"

I purchased this bass a couple months ago, and have been waiting until I replaced the nut (which was cr@p) to review it. It came with a cheesy, hollow plastic thing in which the grooves were too deeply cut. I replaced it with a black TUSQXL 'Epiphone-style' blank (you wont find one with pre-cut grooves that you can just drop in) Now it sounds much better. The black laquor paint was piled up on the back of the nut, unfortunately, so i'll need to do a bit of touch-up, but not that big a deal. The short scale is much easier on my arms and wrists than my long scale fretless. It plays nice, stays in tune, and has pretty good tonal adjustments. Like some other reviewers I find the tone control to be a bit weird; it doesn't seem to do much unless you roll it way off... like there is not much variation in between all the way on and all the way off. Maybe replacing that would be worth it, but I don't know much about tone control.... But the components, in general, seem to be good quality. There isn't anything else about it I would feel needed to be swapped out. The tuners are nice quality. The fretwork is nice, no sharp edges, nicely smoothed out. I'm not at all familiar with these pickups, but they work. the bridge is nice, you got up down, longer and shorter, but not side-to-side like some of the fancier bridges. All in all, if you are looking for a short scale bass, it's worth the money. I was going to go for a short scale Squier but just read too many comments about shoddy parts and I didn't really feel like tearing it all apart. This bass weighs 7.6 lbs. The neck is 2-piece, btw.. with the headstock scarfed on since it tilts back... The workmanship overall, is quite good. The paint is good, the finish is nice, the woodwork is fine. Really nothing to complain about. Next, i'm going to put some flatwounds on it. If you are looking for a short scale, it's worth the money and I imagine i'll hang onto this one. Next, i'll probably make myself a short scale fretless... and keep this one as my fretted bass.

"I am wowed!"

I won a number of bass guitars of different styles, some of which I paid a good deal more for than this one. That being said, I was blown away by this bass. The feel of the neck, weight and balance, quality of the electronics, and caliber and variety of tones produced are really impressive at this price point. In all honesty I did replace the strings it shipped with, but other than that it is perfect. Sometimes a new guitar requires some setup, but this was great out of the box. It's super easy and fun to play, and the mini humbuckers provide a little more punch than something like a pj configuration. This icing on the cake is that it's very good looking too. I'm in love!
