    Bought this 5 string bass having read some great reviews on them. What a dissapointment. Really tight strings and you cant get the action down hardly at all. If you lower the bridge pieces all the way the strings are still about half an inch above the neck. A total unplayable nightmare. Its a neck through so no adjustment there either.

    I am sending it back tomorrow. I have been looking at these new Retrovibes which look gorgeous but so little is known or said about them yet, does anyone have a comment on those. I like the look of the Black Ric

    Really? I used to have one of those and not being able to lower the action was never a problem (and I like mine pretty low). Certainly wasn't half an inch of relief. Did you adjust the truss rod? Yes it's a neck-through, so you can't shim it, but the neck relief adjusts the same as any other bass. And you can change the strings, too, of course, if you don't like the factory strings. I eventually sold mine but only because I wanted a tighter fretboard radius. Really liked it otherwise.
