Ive owned many of these over the years and every one of them has been made exceptionally well. The pickups that come stock in it are actually pretty awesome. They're vintage, so the output is a little low, but thats what the volume/gain knob on your amp is for. The electronics all in all are pretty damn good stock even though the shielding plate in the control cavity doesn't seem to do much of anything, it may just be a design feature. The tuners feel a little cheap and they rattle when the strings are loose or off completely, but other than that they work fine and never go out of tune. I have never had to replace a set of tuners. This bass sounds amazing even all stock even though loads of people modify them to their personal taste.
There's nothing that looks to better in my opinion than a black bodied bass with a maple fretboard with black binding and blocks. It's a match made in heaven.
The neck is super thin front to back and is super fast and comfortable.
I've never played a bass with this much value for the price. Fender could easily charge as much as they would for an american standard.
