    Pros
    • + Plays like butter, lightweight, great pickup with full sound, and cheap!
    Cons
    • - Inexpensive materials, short-scale (if you don't like that), probably not built to last.
    I bought one of these because I wanted something to take on the road that I wouldn't care about if it got stolen or destroyed. This little bass is amazing. Sounds great, light weight, only costs a couple of hundred bucks. Now I have two of them. It's actually been very dependable. It's so small that every studio should have one. Super easy for a guitarist to pick up and play.
    Price Paid:
    $250 (I think, it's been awhile)

    • + fast and easy to play bargain price great tone
    This was my first bass, and remains one of my best purchases. It looks great, plays fast, sounds gargantuan, and is an absolute steal, even at the full street price of $300. Long-time bass playing friends are amazed as just how easy (and fast!) it is to play, and how great it sounds.

    The only mod I made on this was to replace the bridge. The standard bridge is perfectly functional, but the black Hipshot KickAss bridge I dropped in just took the aesthetics to the next level, especially strung with DR Black Beauties.

    Even though I now own several quality basses from the likes of Fender, ESP, and Schecter, I still reach for my Gretsch the most.
