Decent starter bass, but there's better

By Russell from Glenwood, MD on 2/17/2011 1:24:57 PM

First of all, the stock electronics in this bass are great for the price. They sound much better than Fender Squires and other starter basses in my opinion. However, I could never recommend one of these for the following reasons: 1. The headstock and neck weigh too much. This causes the headstock to dip towards the floor when standing. It doesn't ruin the whole bass, but it's a nuisance. 2. There is very limited upper fret access. I realize that bassists will rarely have to go up that high, but it still becomes a problem in those rare occasions. 3. Comfort is a subjective thing, but the body on this bass is not as contoured as many other body styles and this makes playing less comfortable. Although the bass sounds great for the price, it just doesn't feel as good as a lot of other basses out there. Low-end Ibanez, Fender Squire, and even cheap Yamaha basses have a more comfortable design and will make learning much easier for a beginner. Pick-ups can always be replaced so I would recommend one of those over this one any day unless you are absolutely sure that you like how it feels.
