Cool bass, but, January 21, 2011

Cool bass, but the stock strings were crap. It would be worth adding the price of the LaBella flats made expressly for this bass so it would play and sound like it’s supposed to.

Amazing bass, June 28, 2010
By 
Jack (Simpsonville, South Carolina, US) –

Out of my 4 other basses, this is my favorite performance bass. It looks good on stage and sound unbelievable through an amp.

When I want to practice it’s good to use if I don’t have an amp since it’s a hollow body. The minor down side is that it feels cheap and fragile, but it doesn’t really bother me.

All in all, I love this bass!

Beatle fan gets bass, March 3, 2011

I had been looking for a bass guitar for some time. And being a long time Beatles fan I thought it would be fun to get a reproduction of Paul McCartney’s bass when he was with the Beatles – before Wings. The price is really low so I wasn’t expecting too much when it showed up. But I was surprised at how well it did play. There is a bit of buzz to some of the strings but with an adjustment of the metal bars with a rubber mallet it now plays well. This bass is so light and neck is so narrow, it is a dream to play. This bass was made in china. I am very happy with it. If uncomfortable adjusting the metal bars yourself, you can take it in to a shop.
