    Pros - BIG sound
    Great all around bass. The sidewinder mud-bucker gives you that vintage EB tone, especially running through a tube amp. I dropped p/j pickups in mine and you can get almost ANY tone out of it. Also, the devilish looks guarantee that rock n' roll vibe.

    Pros - Love the short scale neck.
    Cons - Single pick up limits tone
    While shopping for a short scale bass I stumbled upon this and it met my needs perfectly. This bass coupled with a compact SS amp makes for a light weight and compact duo to attend blues Jams in a crowded bar.

    Pros - Thunderous, powerful tone.
    Looks retro and classic.
    Nice and cheap.
    Simple to use.
    Light
    Thin neck
    Great with flatwounds as a reggae bass.
    Cons - Very bassy, impossible for slap.
    When a hard object taps on the metal pickup it makes a loud click noise.
    This little bass packs a massive punch! Seriously, if you're not careful you can say goodbye to your speakers! It sounds incredible and smooth with flats, and has a great neck to play on. The finish looks just as good as any Gibson and it is great for beginners, or pros.
    On the other hand, you can't get a slap tone out of it. It's just too bassy. Plus, the pickup will get in the way of your plucking fingers. One major problem is that when you play with a pick and accidentally hit the pickup, it makes a noticeable CLICK noise, which doesn't sound great in the middle of a solo.
    Mine was stolen from my school several weeks before this review, so I can't play it right now, but from what I remember, it's loud, floor-shaking and beautiful. Definitely reccomend to reggae players, but not to funky slappers.

    £149? It was my 12th birthday present and I wasn't told the price. That was the RRP at the time, anyway.
