For the money you can't beat the Matt Freeman Precision Bass. I have many guitars in my collection ranging from Squier's to handmade boutique guitars. I can attest that this bass is a steal at the price. The neck is thick and chunky. Although it is glossy, it is not sticky, very smooth, very fast. The frets are not bad either. A couple sharp ones that will require just a tad of TLC from a good luthier. The sound..... Well, it sounds like a classic P Bass. Nice bottom end and plenty of punch. The other feature that I really like is the nice thick bridge. If your in the market for a P Bass, this one can't be beat for the price! This bass delivers quality tone and feel at a great price!
