Excerpt: The bass sounds like a P-Bass of course, but much warmer than I expected. It has a very well rounded and warm tone with a nice bottom end and spanky highs. I expected it to be more mid-heavy, honky, but happily it was not. The vintage pickups sound great with absolutely no need for replacement...ever.
Excerpt: This bass "cooks!!" I love the 51 pickup which provides excellent tone to rock and r&b music selection. Quality instrument cables are a must to aviod some buzz from the pickup. I enjoy my Ibanez active bass however, the construction and sound of this bass seperates from the others. Playing through my 2x10 SWR with a 115 ampeg extension lays out a strong clear sound. Make sure you get the 3.5 guitar strap for the extra weight.
Summary: I rushed to the my local music store as soon as I heard about this to try it out (me being a big Mike Dirnt and Green Day fan). I must say I was a bit disappointed. The bass was heavier than most standard basses (though this can easily be fixed by using a wider strap or an air cell strap), I could only get one tone, which is the low, punchy one heard in so many live performances, the pickguard came off a little too easy and the strings that were on it were too bright and...
Summary: This guitar is the best one I have ever bought it was worth the price. Its perfectly balanced I really like it. I was always a fan of the fender 51 then I saw this and I had to have . I give it 5 stars.
Summary: This is a really great bass and Im glad to own it. I have many basses but this one is one of my favorite concert ones. I like the sound of this great bass. It has a very nice voice and very powerful tone range.
