"Worth the long wait"

Ordered the quilt top XT-25 wine red back in March. The delivery date kept getting pushed back. No fault of zZounds, but I was getting pretty frustrated. Then suddenly I received the notification that it had shipped. 5 days later I had it. I had read the limited reviews, some good, some not. Some saying there were blemishes in the finish and other problems. So I unpacked it carefully and looked it over literally with a magnifying glass. Don't know about others, but mine is FLAWLESS ! and BEAUTIFUL ! Pictures do not do it justice. Frets and intonation are great. The wood used on the fretboard is very hard and very pretty as well. Light and compact, when I whipped it out to show my bandmates their jaws literally dropped ! It was funny to see. My only critique, the tuners were/are stiff and hard to turn. I put a few drops of liquid wrench on them and worked them in/out a few times. Better. But still hard to tune exactly. It will take me some time to adjust the tone to what I want. Trial and error. I have a 4 string Spirit and a hard case for same. The XT-25 does not fit into this case. Too wide. The gig bag it comes with is adequate. I'm not a gig bag guy. Will have to get a hard case (when they're available). Bottom line, I love this bass ! for under $500 you are getting a unique instrument. I'm sure the standard model at $50 less is just as good. BUY IT !

"Sounds great for progressive rock"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve played a lot of bass’ over the last 11 years. This headless bass sounds incredible. Great for Hard Rock, Classic Rock, Metal, Progressive Rock/Metal an all around Heavy weight for Jazz, Funk, Blues and More.I had to set this instrument up myself the Saddles were not set, the neck was warped from sitting in the box, the neck had a little dust, a few blemishes on it, strings were old but sounded great. A new set will make this bass shine. Sounds a lot like a MusicMan Bongo from my perspective.
