    Pros
    • + Amazing Finish
    Cons
    • - Setup, Tone, Headstock Weight
    First off, this bass has a very cool silver finish that shines beautifully under stage lights. I loved playing this thing, i just wasn't in love with the sound of it. To me, it was too mellow for the type of music i was playing and never was really able to punch through as it was needed in some songs my band plays. Also, from the factory the action was rather high, but everything else was good. Finally, my biggest complaint: The head stock was too heavy for the body and every time i played the bass on stage the head stock would pull it almost horizontal if i took my hand off the neck. I heard this is a common problem due to the strap button placement and can be remedied by either moving it or putting some type of weight at the other end of the bass. Overall, it is a great bass but i recommend trying it out first to see what you think of it before you buy it.
