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 made me remember what I

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

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

The effects alone are worth the price. very entertaining. also fantastic sound and a legitimate choice for your bass amp. you won't be sorry at this price point. I also use it as the speaker output for my laptop. you'll never use your soundbar

This is my 3rd Fender amp and I've yet to be disappointed with their products. Great presets and plenty of room to make your own settings. Some presets have some volume drop, but this is not meant to be a gigging amp--there are plenty of other options for greater wattage. For playing/practicing/recording at home this fits the bill.

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

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 guitar can be

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

These short scale basses are a joy to play if you don’t have large hands. Restringing with D’Addario short scale half-rounds 45-100 and doing a full setup with the truss rod, bridge and intonation made this great. And swapping the neck J pickup with an mLaval $16 special (need to trim to use the original cover, and wire out of phase)

Just what I needed! I write and record music at home. I needed a bass but didn't have a desire to blow a lot of money on one since I just need it to lay down some bass tracks for my songs. I also had a daughter who was interested in learning to play, so for me it killed two birds with one stone. I love the smaller size personally and

I purchased this axe in Jan of 2016 when I began playing bass for our Sunday services. Here it is 2019. I play approx 3 times per month and this guitar has been a rock-solid performer. I run it through a Boss Tuner and a SansAmp and I couldn't be more pleased for a $200

I bought this for my wife as she's willing to learn how to play bass. We did have an issue after the 3rd time using it. Turned on the amp and we kept getting a high rythym pitch coming out of the amp. We thought it was the amp or the connections. We tried everything. And then we thought it was a bad bass. We then noticed that the thing

Legit! Fit and finish nearly perfect, smallest imperfection near neck joint-who cares, great strings even. Looks like nickel plated not chrome hardware on headstock- rad- tons of grease on the tuners, the volume- volume- tone is pretty responsive. Upgrade the potentiometers and get a new capacitor for 30 bucks you've got an absolute gem!

This package is pretty great for someone new or wanting to see if they will like playing bass. The Fender amp is pretty loud and a quality amp. it comes with a cable, strap and gig bag for the bass. The bass itself is good. I mean it sells for $229 by itself. It will sound good, but if you are a noob what will you know about sounding

Overall this package is decent for beginners, but there is one major problem - it is of no use out of the box because it has not been set up at all. Before using this, it must be taken to a professional to be set up, as the action is too high and the intonation is lousy. Without the set up, your hands and fingers will ache and you won't

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

No hum from the pickup at all and it has a very nice tone that I find to fit nearly every song I've tried with a simple tone adjustment. The neck is extremely smooth and soft to the touch. No issues with fret sharpness at all, despite other complaints I've seen. Tuners stay locked and I rarely have to

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

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 was told I'd

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 see here

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 was simply amazed by this bass guitar. I am a beginner bass player but I’ve been around my fair share of guitars and I have to say, for $150, you cannot go wrong! To start, the body is solid and heavy. I also could not find a flaw on the finish of my guitar. The frets were great, not sharp at all and no high frets. The tuners are

I read a few negative things about the setup of this bass, and either they were unlucky or the seller stepped up their game. This thing came out of the box already tuned and the bridge setup was super low and crunchy just how I like. The neck has a nice satin finish so it’s easy to slide up and down as you please. Fairly wide neck, but

I'm new to the bass and still so far have sort of a casual attitude about it compared to the guitar, so there's not much I can say comparing it to anything else or to the expectations of an experienced or serious bassist.

I am an average bass player, owing 12 basses now. This buttercream FAR surpasses my expectations. Quality build: a 10. The neck is thin, permitting incredibly easy movement up and down it. The craftsmanship of the bass is just beautiful. The maple neck, front and back, is something you must see in person. The P-Bass pickups are typical,

After playing guitar for 25 years I thought it was time to get a bass for recording and for fun--I always knew it would be a P bass. It has one basic tone--but it's a great tone! Very easy to play and has a great feel in your hands. All the YouTube videos are accurate; its beauty and strength is in its simplicity. This is my third

I'd heard mixed things about the old MiM Fenders, but I knew they'd stepped it up and made the Player Series great instruments, so I decided to try one out. Out of the box, it played fine and would be a solid instrument for many gigging musicians after a string change and a setup (which I recommend on every new guitar). I was expecting

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.

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.

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

Based on the previous review I knew this would take some tweaking to make it play well. Out of the box, the truss rod nut was fully tightened giving the neck some serious back bow, so as a result every note you played had fret buzz.

Beautiful, and flawless. I’m pleasantly surprised that the fret lines are indicated by actual thin metal ‘fret’ inlays rather than what appeared to be cosmetic lines on the fret board.
