Overall Impression — 10
Unlike other basses at this price range, AB900 is loaded up with a great tone, quality parts and great feel. It offers you a great workable and professional features at an awesome price. You can pick up this bass guitar for around 300 bucks - that is an absolute burgain for what you're actually getting. Great value for so nicely sounding and playing bass guitar.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
This is a durable very well-made bass guitar, it possess an awesome finish and looks great. It plays really well and have a nice tight action, which is ideal for the newcomer to the instrument. And it's made of strong and great quality hardware. Heavy duty chrome hardware with clover-leaf machine heads provide super-stable tuning. The nicely carved maple neck is finished superb and the tight little action works great for nice chordal playing, super-fast arpegiated runs and great maneuverability amongst slap domination. The cool action gives a great dynamic in the righth hand and great sustain in playing with eitherfingers or pick. There are two volume knobs corresponding to each pickup and an overall tone knob. All sound great and help to increase the versatility that the bass has to offer.
