"Good bass with a few minor issues"
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

For the price, this bass is great. I have it strung up with La Bella Balanced flats and it sounds amazing. The piezo pickup is way more flexible than I would have thought. It's extremely light and comfortable to play for hours. One thing to keep in mind is that the fretlines are nearly invisible in bad lighting. The dots are lined up with the lines which helps a lot for fretless newbie such as myself. I only have a couple complaints. The setup it came with was really bad. The setup it had out of the box was really bad. Also, there were a few rough spots on the neck that I had to smooth out with some steel wool. Next, it does neck dive which I expected for a 5 string semi-hollow. I'll put some Hipshot ultralights on it eventually. Overall, I really love the bass. For the price it's really hard to find a better option.

"Great Fretless Sound"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

Light bass for it's size. Thickness of body take some time to get use to being much thicker than the typical Ibanez bass. Neck is the typical Ibanez bass neck, thin and fast. Being fretless, wonderful sound with the flatwound strings and piezo pickup. If you need lines, they are there but need good lighting to see them. Anyone some distance away will probably see it as unlined. Dots on the side of the neck are on the fretlines.
