so Fed-Ex just dropped this off at my door!
Yea i know..cheap bass...big deal right?...well
been gassing for a P/J......I Couldn't find a squier p/j...didn't want to spend 1,000.00 plus on a Fender (Not a big fan anyway) so this seemed to fill the bill
I have had great luck with ESP/LTD in the past
out of the box the finish is nice though the relic job is a bit cheesy...the neck however is super super comfortable...tuned it up and much to my surprise the Intonation at the 12 fret was almost dead on...and the action and string height were good as well..
plugged her in and lots of very tight smooth low end form the neck "p" pup...moving to the jazz pup in the bridge nice sharp high but kinda sounded hollow in the low end department....In fact, the difference in lows, volume, and overall fullness was totally night and day
with the Bridge "j" at full blast i had to put the neck "p" pup at about 70% to 75% percent to blend well ...
had to make a few adjustments to height on the pups....once i did that it sounded a little better...wide range of tones available..no problem with rock, blues, jazz or some good ol' R and B
But the neck! i can't get over how comfortable this neck is and the playability!..no sharp frets...all seated and crowned very well...
Seems a little on the heavy side but... has a solid alder body...34" scale maple neck with rosewood fretboard...21 frets..Jumbo
overall very happy with the purchase....will make a great mod platform....and if you like the stock look...i think an after market set of pups would be all this bass would need
again this neck rocks!
street is $349.00 i had a coupon so it was delivered to my door for $279.20
