Sound — 10
This sound is amazing! It can match my Rock style with bass galore, it can have a very bright sound, then drop down to a very dark sound for minor keys. It never gives out no noise what'soever (hence the name noiseless pickups). It has one of the best sounds I've ever heard in a bass.
Overall Impression — 9
I play in J-band, a rock band, and a christian band. It matches all of these genres. I've played for 3 and a half years, and I own an upright and a Squier Affinity. This one blows both of them out in everything. Minus the Upright for swing. I love it's versatility, and sheer awesomeness. I wish it had a longer scale, but everything else is perfect!
Reliability & Durability — 10
This bass stands up to everything I've accidentally thrown at it. I my strap broke once on stage and it fell on the ground About a 6ft drop. It didn't even lose it's pitch! It's stood up to a little bit of rain, and the constant little kid attacks on it. One kid actually hit it with a rolling pin. Why I don't know, but It's just as good as the day I bought it.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The action was set up a little lower than I liked. And with the 34" scale the B string was a little wobbly. The bass was set up very good though. Neck was set, along with the pickups, tuners, and the bridge. The finish is solid and looks good, mine is black, and the perloid pick guard looks really good in contrast with the black coloring.
Features — 9
60th Anniversity, Made in Mexico, jazz bass. Made with maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. 20 jumbo frets. Alder body, C-style body. Active electronics (hence the name) volume, tone, and a 3-band EQ. Noiseless pickups and Gotoh style tuners. The tuners hold amazing pitch, you could easily get away with tuning this bass once a week. The pickups combined with the wood choice can give off a very warm tone, to a very fat tone. With the neck pickup on you can get a great solo tone, or an awesome bass tone. With your bridge pickup on you can get good mids with a nice funk tone.
