I play Metal and Punk and Oldies every now and then....the playability matches what I need. I've been playing for 4 years now. I'm 14 but I know quality wheni see it..I've been around bands my whole life and hanlded many instruments but I feel it is a good over all bass. I own probably 2 other basses and 6 guitars..I'll put it this way in the right conditions..this bass will play like an SG bass!! If this bass was stolen I'd spend the rest of my life trying to find it or I'd buy new 1's forever!!! I reccommend this bass for anyone willing to spend 129.00 to 169.00 for quality to match the price...

Ohh after all I've done with this bass..it has held up great..it hardly goes out of tune...even in extreme temps.the hard ware is good quality..I think it will last as long as I will! The strap buttons are solid.. recommend hand tightening them when you get though..it always helps to do small things when u get it..the finish is good..the only nick I got on it was when my friends misused it..there are shallow scratches o it from my chains..nothing below the finish...no fading either..there are always room for probs but I normally I wouldn't carry a backup when using this bass...

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Everything on the bass was good from the start...I wish I hadn't changed anything...the playablity is great..there is enought action for a funk player or for as simple as a player fairly new to bass..the only thing I changd when I got it was the height of the stringsd from the neck..it was too high to play above the 12th fret..so I recommend changing it for beginners and maybe a little for experienced players.

    I bought this bass through musiciansfriend a few weeks ago and have hardly put it down since. I have no idea how they can sell a bass of that quality for such a low price. I use an Ampeg 25-watt and can't believe the sound that comes out of it. Great buy!

    I plan on getting a Rogue 5- string for X-mas. Simply because of the price but now it looks like it's not a half-bad brand. Sweet.

    i own one.....its a pretty good bass i picked mine up at a garage sale for $50 along with an amp(that blew 2 months ago:grr a mic stand and mic pretty good deal i think ive had a few other bassists tell me that this bass isnt bad at all or they offerd me the price i paid to buy it off of me but ya.... other than that i agree to this review

    I have one of these basses and i think that they rock... out loud. WEll i pretty much agree with this review. I haven't had any problems and i think overall it is amazing. I highly recommend this bass to any beginner or to anyone who just feels like paying a low price but great bass. Peace!!!

    I own this bass the only problems are that the input jack is loose and one of the volume controls fell off by itself. Like in the review the strings are to high off the fretboard so its hard to play on the high notes. It has no truss rod that ive seen so far

    Got this bass for about $100 and I love it. It is a perfect beginner bass. It really got me into playing bass guitar.
