Sound — 8
Well, I play Rock, not any other way to say then just say Rock, and this bass suits pretty well for, I did have to set up my bridge, and and adjust the pickups and the truss rod, but that's to be expected with a new bass. It sounds great, nice and punchy, has good pop, love to slap on it.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall, I really love this bass, and I'll have it till the day I die, these other guys must've just been unlucky and gotten bad basses, and hey, there's nothing wrong with buying a cheaper bass and putting some new electronics, bridge, etc..

Reliability & Durability — 9
I've played with this bass live many times with my Ampeg stack and it has never let me down, I've had it for two years and never had a problem with it, not gonna be easy to find a bass with as much character this one has.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
As I already said, set up from the factory was pretty normal for a new bass, so I had to adjust it to my liking, but that's to be expected. It's really just a very decent guitar, has one of the smoothest necks I've ever played, and I must've gotten lucky, because the rosewood on my fret board is gorgeous.

Made in China. 20 Frets. P bass pickup configuration. The original bridge was a P Bass bridge, but I upgraded to a Leo Quan Badass Bass II Bridge.
