I'm keeping this on the short list, but as I've yet to own a bass, I'm trying to remain tepid.

From what I've picked up, it's pretty similar to the Ibanez SR-305, which is one of the basses I've considered alongside the Yamaha TRBX-305.

Rondo / Brice have gotten better about their QA on their instruments, but you may need to have someone do a set up after purchase. They are also good about returns if you don't like the bass. I have a Brice 6 string that after a good setup is a good instrument in relation to what I paid for it.

That's no biggie to me. I've built my own computers for almost 20 years, so doing a guitar setup isn't that daunting and I actually like to be hands-on with it. I figure knowing how to set up is good to know anyway.
