First, the bad news: this is NOT the Fender Jazz that Geddy Lee plays.

Then again, that bass cost about six TIMES what this one cost. So, there is that.

As long as you are willing to accept that, this bass is phenomenal. Great action, comfortable fret board, and flat-out beautiful finish. My first time picking it up

Sure, you can spend an extra thousand dollars or more for a "professional" bass. But in terms of quality, it's only going to be 5% better than this one. I am blown away by this thing! To say that it exceeded my expectations is a massive understatement. I could not be

Believe it or not this is one of the best basses I’ve ever owned. I bought this bass only with the intentions of using it for upcoming performances while my main bass was being repaired, the plan was to only use the squire for about 3 weeks until my bass was fixed then get rid of it except I’ve enjoyed playing this bass so much that

I am a novice player, with 4 basses now (Fender, Ibanez, Schecter), but kept reading many articles about this bass. It was on my list for a while and it arrived 2 days ago. I bought the black gloss, which has a tiger maple look under the gloss-and I view this as beautiful. The bass is heavier than my others and has some neck drop, but the

Okay seriously, for the price, this bass is excellent! It looks and feels excellent. It sounds great too. I was surprised when there was no pickup switch but then realized the control knobs adjust the mix. I can't imagine a better bass anywhere in this range. I play guitar but needed/wanted a bass. I'm perfectly pleased with this bass

I really wanted to like this bass guitar, but apparently there might be a quality control problem with made in Indonesia Yamaha guitars.

The Yamaha TBRX504 I received had a problem with its active circuit picking up a local radio station and playing it through my amp. In the passive mode the radio signals are cut out. This

This is very light yet very durable and protective. I have a Squier Strat and it fits perfectly. It won’t fit the guitar with the strap on, but I never do that anyways. The pockets are big as well as the inside compartments. Enough room for a few pedels inside or a strap, cord, picks and other small accessories.

Very happy

Update: I was about to return my Gator case, sadly because except for size it was exactly what I wanted. I thought maybe I could crush the foam at each end of the case enough to make it fit my guitar. Put the guitar in the case to see how much to squish and the guitar fell right into place. What happened? I put the headstock in first

Had a gig bag for my Squier VMJB 5 string before, but if fit extremely tight at headstock area because of the extra tuner. This of course messed up my tuning because I had to turn tuner keys a certain way to fit... barely. So I went ahead and got this Gator Bass soft case instead. Now it fits perfectly. Body is snug, and neck is snug.

The quality of the bass is incredible! I still can not believe I only paid 250 for it. I've been playing bass for many years now but this is my first 5 string.

I'll preface this with I don't play and am not musical.
My daughter wanted this for her 15th birthday. She loves the colour and the fact that it is a 5 string. She already plays guitar and piano and wanted to give bass a try.
This particular bass was slightly lighter than several other 5 strings she tried (she's a little thing).

Wanted a 5 string and this one had good reviews. The one I received was nice looking but had issues. The pickup covers are loose or at least wobbly and there is a huge amount of fret buzz.

This came with a tag indicating that it had been inspected and setup at the factory. But, shipping and handling must have had an effect on it (and/or they weren't careful at the factory) since it had multiple setup issues:

- Neck curvature was incorrect (not concave enough)
- E string bridge position was too low (and other

The good: The neck is fantastic with a satin finish and very comfortable to play. The electronics are great and offer a good range of tones. It's very responsive to where you hit the strings. Obviously, if you hit the same note closer to the bridge than the neck it sounds different. But you can hit the same note an inch in either

I like that it is light weight and has a nice quality wood. This was important in my purchase.
It was important to me that it have active electronics which many similar Ibanez models do not.
Negative: the tone and volume controls are poorly designed.

First of all, It’s pretty.

I decided to learn to play bass after getting involved with a garage band where there are 6 old guys who play guitar. Didn’t wanna spend a whole buncha money, because at my age, I’m not gonna go pro and tour the world. But I did want an ax that was easy to play and sounded good. This was

This is a really nice, inexpensive musical instrument. I am not sure what the "for beginners" rating really means. With musical instruments, the poorer quality, the harder they are to learn to play. So guitars that are made unsuitable for advanced musicians are definitely unsuitable for beginners. This one is fine, and it is inexpensive,

I'm not a bass player, always wanted to be one,just never got around to it. My guitars go untouched now days due to arthritis in my hands, but I find I can still hit "most" of the strings on the bass,so I got one. The Ibanez has a slender neck,easier to get my hands around, and sweet sounding pick-ups,I was really impressed with

Out of the box, this bass is an EXCELLENT value! After 50 years of playing bass, I switched to Short Scale and will never go back to a 34" scale bass. Playing Short Scale is so much fun, I feel like I am cheating! I purchase this Ibanez Mikro as a backup bass to my Gretsch semi-acoustic short scale bass.I own a very high end Ibanez

Really like this bass. However, be aware that if you order the walnut color, what you get does not match the picture. Had I read the description a more closely, I would have probably known better. The body of the guitar is made of poplar, not walnut. Poplar is a softwood that does not have a nice defined grain. It is painted something

I have played guitar since 1965 and also bass for much of that time. I wanted a cheap knock-around bass I could take to camps and other outdoor events and said "$63.95, what the heck!" I was very pleasantly surprised.

I ordered the bass late on October 29, and it is not Prime, so shipping was listed as free, but not 2 days. I

As someone who has picked up acoustic and electric 6 string guitars over the years, always convinced that I'll somehow channel Stevie Ray Vaughan, only to find that I lose interest once I determine (again) that there's real work involved, I thought I'd give a bass a shot. I have zero confidence that I'll stick with it, but don't want to

You really can't go wrong at this price. Mine came with a flawless finish, no fret sprout and the setup was playable right out of the box. Your mileage may vary.

It is neck heavy because of the lightweight body. A wide leather strap would help combat that as would some lightweight tuners. This is basically one of those kits you

I am an average bass player. Comparing my Ibanex 501 and a short scale mustang bass, to a degree, with this Schechter, I am totally impressed with the deep resonating tones this box puts out. The bass neck is wide (in comparison) and the bass is about the same weight as the comparisons, but with no noticeable neck drop. The body is cutout

Believe me, I am reluctant to give a $300 bass guitar a 5-star rating. This instrument deserves it. Here's why:

With respect to tone, this bass will have you covered in any working band situation, in my opinion. You'll be able to dial in an appropriate sound for any style of music. Its strong suits seem to be: slap-bass tones,

Bought this for my wife as a scratch-and-dent item. I THINK I might have found the cosmetic imperfection, but not sure (this means I'm very happy with the bass!).

I didn't expect squat for a hundred dollar bass. Then it arrived ... you are right it is NOT an Ibanez it is a knock off. TBH I would choose this over the Ibanez because my Ibanez TORTURED my neck.

First of all, read this review with the price in mind. That being said, Man, this bass is beautiful. The wood is semi finished, not glossy. So you can feel the wood grain. It needed some basic set up because there was some pretty significant fret buzz, but the tools come with it and the manual walks you through it. I can’t comment on

There are two small things that could be improved that kept me from giving five stars. The output jack is recessed a little deep and makes plugging and unplugging annoying. Second, I think a slightly more substantial oil finish would be more durable. I very much enjoy playing it, it has great tone and holds tune well and the action is

Bass is really good for the price. Got it setup (most guitars usually need a proper setup) and swapped out some of the electronics and nut. Stock pickup is trash but the feel is great.

Very impressed. Not only does it look great, it is a player. Comparing this to my Squire Jazz bass, the Glarry model plays much better and looks way better. The width of the typical jazz bass nut is quite thin but the Glarry has a little bit more nut width.

A lot of bass for the buck! Quite well made overall It needed the usual adjustments to the neck and bridge, but the tools were included. Good shipping and packing. It is a little "short" on sustain and sounds a little "tinny" with my 20 watt practice amp, but great with my 160 watt Peavey. Perfect for young/small
