The tone you can get out of this bass is amazing. The Neck pickup (mudbucker/motherbucker) is really powerfull,hollow excellent for harder genres of music, synergy with fuzz effect is superb. The bridge pickup however, is really soft. I get the best tone out of the bass when i use both of them, the mini humbucker equalizes the mudbucker - excellent lows and highs aswell. The instrument is beautiful, but the build quality could be better. The first one i got from the store had huge paint slips, and a buzzing fretboard, returned and got a pretty solid one, but this has some minor paint glitches too. Unfortunatelly the chineese building is inconsistent. The 3 point bridge is not the best, but once you get used to it, its pretty good. The one and most important step to set up the bridge, so it wont get out of the bass ,is that the first screw should be a bit higher than the other two. When you are restringing the bass change string 1 by 1 so, the bridge wont fall out. The bass is light, the hardware is solid, the gloss paint is just gorgeous. All in all with its flaws it is a really good bass, the sound is superb, it could be set up good , and it is the most beautiful SG bass out there with a bargin price.
