This bass is a very comfortable bass to play, i play on the back pick up most because it gives you a really nice punchy sound. the looks are amazing as well. 5/5!

This bass is very affordable and very well priced for what it puts out.
The sounds you can get from it are not far off a more expenisve fener guitar, and i must say i was surprised when i first picked tit up and had a go, Its build quality and finish are very nice, I decided to wait a little longer and order in the Black on Black model but the Sunburst is just the same.
The 3 band EQ on the bass is also very helpful, i am not one who likes active basses in particular but with this bass it seemed right to have it, There are endless combinations of sounds you can get from the bass even when you have your EQ on your Amp set flat, this is why i can see this bass becoming a valuable tool in live preformance and in the studio.
The body is basswood but still produces a "full" sound, Another nice feature is the Bass Cut / "slap boost" switch which cuts the low end and gives you extra treble boost, i have found myself using this primarily and adding bass using the EQ on the bass / amp as i like the tone of sound it produces this way, it just sounds more authentic jazz.
Overall the bass has been a very decent investment and hasnt burned a huge hole in my pocket.
This bass is very versatile but you dont have to worry too much about it because of the price you pay for it, there is a 5 string version out there as well, but i personally chose to go with the 4 string.
Hope this helps anyone out there thinking of buying this bass...
