Sound — 10
The bass has a very punk/rock sound, but with that sound I can play anything with it from Led Zeppelin to Green Day to Metallica. With the tone on the treble full and volume completely up, you will get little sound when you're not playing, it's not entirely noticable.
Overall Impression — 10
This Bass is perfect for what I play (Classic rock/ punk/ rock) and I highly reccommend if you play the same and are looking for a new bass. The only thing I wished I asked before I bought it was 'How old are the strings' (since it's 2nd hand) and I only had a bright tone for a couple of weeks before having to change them. The only negative about this bass to me is that it's a bit heavy, but I've jumped around with it, you get use to it. Favourite thing, the general tone of it, it's beautiful, truely like a 55' Fender bass with a punk/rock edge
Reliability & Durability — 9
I have played this Bass Live 4-5 times and it's held well. It doesn't go out of tune and the strap buttons are fairly solid, I play with plastic straplocks and that does the trick. I have used it without a backup at every gig and it's fine. I've been playing it for about 2-3 years now and there seems to be no wear or the finish is coming off so it holds itself well.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The Bass is ideal for pick players, so the action is fairly high. I tend to play some slap/pop bass which is hard to play on the high action but that can be fixed. It was brilliantly put together, no dents or marks, works 100% and the jack input hasn't had any problems.
