Overall Impression — 8
I bought this guitar before I knew anything about playing the bass. I learnt how to play from scratch on this bass and for that purpose it was superb. However I would advise you to look around at other basses, or atleast try this bass before you buy it. There are no problems with it, but others may suit you better.
Reliability & Durability — 8
Overall this bass is great and durable. I have had it for over a year now, it has been to many practices and a few gigs also. It has travelled alot, survived quite a few (accidental) drops and alot of playing. Over the year the only problem I have found to the body work is a slight dent on the side. This has not affected the paintwork which hasnt chipped. However a big problem is the guitar lead input. The bolts often come loose and stop the guitar outputting a signal. Even when properly tightened the problem can repeate in just a few weeks.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Superbly put together. There were no flaws in the bass at all. Pickups were perfect and the bass has always been good. The bass was ready to play as soon as i got it home and it sounded as great as it does today. Very well put together.
