Summary: This is an excellent bass, especially for the price. Has both P & J pick-ups separate volume controls for each, plus a third tone control. Seldom needs tuning. Great 24 fretboard. Light Agatha (sp?) body, but still has a nice tone. I am still a fledgling bass player, so I am not an expert.
Summary: I have been playing guitar for 20+ years and was supposed to be doing that in the new band I am in. But the bassist did not show up so I gave it a go. Liked it more than I wanted to admit and ended up wanting to buy a bass guitar.
Summary: You really cant go wrong with Yamaha. Everything works as it should. Sounds good, plays well and stays in tune. I have owned a number of guitars and this is well built and excellent value for money.
