Overall Impression — 8
This bass can play just about any style as long as it's not too farfetched. I've had this bass for about two months but I've been playing for about a year now. If I lost it then I'd probably go all out and buy something amazing, but I'd love to have it as a back up. I love how there's a volume control for each of the pickups, it gives me a good feeling of control. This is definitely a good choice for a 2nd bass or backup bass or what ever you want really. Thank you, Dean!
Reliability & Durability — 8
This bass is very durable. A couple days after I bought it, we decided to knock over my drummers drum set and my bass got knocked over accidentally. There was only a little cut in it, but it gives the bass character, as I like to say. The finish on the fret board seems decent but will probably wear off after awhile. It's a very dependable guitar but I would only play with it without a backup if I had to. Overall, a pretty rugid guitar.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
I bought the same bass that I had played with in the store, and it had only been there for a few days, so there wasn't anything wrong with it really. It was a little out of tune, but that was probably from the car ride home with it. One of the pickups was a little loose but it didn't really make a difference in the sound. Overall, it was a pretty good finish and the store did a good job of keeping it well-kept.
