Best 5 String Bass for the $$
I was very surprised at how well this bass played and sounded. It's not the best 5 string bass made, but for the money it can't be beat. Low action, smooth, fast, straight neck. Really nice feel to it.
Looks fantastic and very good fit and finish.
Sound quality is a bit lacking if you're wanting to use this bass regularly on gigs. Good overall tone, but just a bit thin for my taste. I'm replacing the pups with SD Quarter Pounds and the capacitor as well. Hopefully this will fill out the sound.
Even with the stock pups this bass is well worth the money. I have no problems recommending this bass whether you're a seasoned musician or just starting out.
Of course, Sweetwater makes it easy to purchase and follows up with great customer service.
