This bass is like butter. I got it last year because I wanted a bass with Fishman pickups a and have not looked back.I had a great tone dialed in in about 15 minutes, but have found have a dozen others. How? Fishman.Now I’m considering the 4 string version for my next instrument because it’s just so perfect. Okay, maybe not perfect. There are three things to consider about this bass: #1: when stringing through the body, you will *need* super long strings, ones that taper at 38”. #2: the side dots that glow in the dark are not very “glowy” or bright. #3. The body is heavy, which is good for sustain, but it does feel like a brick. Overall though, this is an amazing instrument that you’ll be happy with for years to come.

The Wow Factor
Absolutely amazing. I’ve had it for a year and it still blows my mind! The guy who gave it a negative review was user error. It sounds like his pickups were too high, and then he first tried to adjust the truss rod(which should never ever be your first move) using standard tools instead of what came with the bass...

"Noice"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Pretty nice bass. Not very heavy. Gorgeous flame maple top. Kind of uncomfortable to use sitting down as there's no arm bevel on the body; so your arm is resting on a hard edge. Also found a small hole in the satin finish on the neck. Nothing serious, but it is there. This should be grounds for a reclassification to B-Stock, but I'm not trippin.

"Piece of ****"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sounds great but unplayable. Came set up but then it became unplayable. So I got it set up. 3 days later, the stupid thing starts to dead note on the open string to the 6th fret. I tried to adjust the truss rod and it won't budge a single bit. My suggestion, don't waste your money of this piece of ****
Musical Background:
I play a few different instruments. Needed a really good bass.

I do a lot of metal.
