First of all, keep in mind 5 stars are in keeping with what this bass guitar is all about. A $79.99 step into the world of owning and playing a jazz style bass. That having been said, I would play this bass anywhere, and in fact have played it at shows. The quality of the build of this bass is amazing for the money, and in fact, is on a par with the more inexpensive Squires. Which is meant as a compliment, by the way. I happen to own the natural one that is called "Burley Wood", but they come also in black, sunset, white or blue. An excellent modding platform, knock around, or use for travel, bass guitar. I'll include a you Tube review so you can see and hear it being played... I've been a member of this forum for years. This is the first review I have posted because I want you all to see what you can get for $79.99. Amazing.
