1st Anthony Logano is a go to person when ordering from sweetwater..the guy knows the buisness and the gear..the bass plays extremely nice for the price point it sits in..frets are filed at edges so no slice and dice on the hands when playing.the neck has a nice feel and plays fast...i use this to record with and it sounds great with a little compression and delay..the shipping was super fast and all i have done is tune it and plug in to play..it holds tuning well..if you are considering this bass and are in this price point shopping..take the plunge you wont regret it

Great bass for the money

Purchased the 3 color sunburst and the finish is great. Sweetwater set up the action very nicely. I have small hands and can easily move about the fingerboard. The tone is good. however I plan to replace the Fender strings with D'Addairo Nickle Wounds(EXL170)same guage. I like a little more brightness and these are mounted on a second bass and sound great. The only other change I'm going to make is replace the black pick guard with a D'Anrdea Red Pearl model. Otherwise no other changes. My service rep Joel and his team were helpful in my purchase.

This is by far the best and lightest Bass for the money. Had better tone than any Bass I ever had including American Made Fender Jazz and Precision. For $300 Bucks, you can't go wrong.

Holy Cow, NICE !!!

The fit and finish of this Bass is as good, if not better than ANY MIA, or MIN Fender Bass I've ever owned! I have the action adjusted as low as I can without fret buzz and it's real low... :-)The Pickups sound good, I don't know for sure but I'm thinking they're ceramic, but I'm not sure because there so smooth sounding. The Jazz pickup reminds me of the old DiMarzio pickups...(maybe still they still have this) with the double hex poles instead of solid. The neck is a great rendition of a P Bass neck... not the flattest, but not a baseball bat either...very comfortable to play... just the right width, and the gloss finish doesn't seem to be sticky like they were in the '80s and '90s. I picked a light one, 7 lbs. (THANK YOU Sweetwater for listing the weight and showing a few, key important, pictures !) so, for me, it'll be very comfortable for a full 4 set, all night gig.I'm going to put a Tortoise Shell pickguard on and I think that may be it.... Great Bass for a Great Price!!
