"Beautiful, ballsy, and exceptional playability"

Acoustic Basses are quiet when unplugged and this one is no exception. However, it is loud enough for practice in the living room and maybe with an acoustic guitarist playing softer. The tone unplugged is above average, very woody with some brightness.BUT this thing absolutely shines when plugged in. I was blown away at the crisp tones and ballsy lows I was hearing. I usually play a Fender 5-String American Standard Jazz so I’m used to lots of sizzle and growl. I am beyond happy to add this acoustic bass to my lineup. The Fishman Presys+ is amazing. You have so much control over your time and can almost get anything you want out of it. The notch and phase features are especially useful for maintaining clarity and tone at high volume and eliminating feedback and distortion. The fit and finish of this bass is exceptional at the price point. It’s like a piece of artwork and even more beautiful in person. Definitely gets bonus points for style.I’m giving this bass and bass alone 5 stars but I must also say this. If you get a case with it, pony up the cash for the hard shell. I got the gig bag and the quality is questionable. It arrived with a small tear and some frayed stitching. It will be adequate for protection for now but I may upgrade to the hard shell eventually. Also the stock tuning pegs aren’t the best but they work and have held tune fine so far, just feel cheap.

"Actually impressed"

I didn't overly expect as much as I got with this bass. Sounds the same plugged in as it does acoustic. I used a sans amp pedal for a bit of color, then into a full stack of 4-10s and 1-15 from Acoustic amps...feedback was minimum and controllable (only happened when facing the amp under 3ft range). I have found 2 finish flaws on the neck where the satin sealer was not sanded well. This has become my go to bass for practice and may take over the stage.Reports of low b sounding floppy are true( stock strings and tuned to b flat) but a new set up with better strings are online....I did go to another company for a tail, endpin strap adapter that is a must...normal straps don't seem to work well...look it up for a fishman and you'll see what I mean.Next show I'll use a wireless and see how it does and sounds further from stage.Buy this bass
