    Pros
    • + Light, small, cheap
    Cons
    • - Have to finish it before playing
    A nice small bass to carry everywhere you go: small, light and sold with its gig bag. It has a good pickup with a good sound for a cheap bass.

    If you buy it, you'll need to set the bridge and the neck (or ask a professionnal to do it). Once you're done with it, you'll have a bass that worth playing on.

    Tuners are guitar ones so 40-100 will be the maximum you can give it. You can change them but for other guitar tuners (bass ones are too big).

    The main problem is that the neck is heavier than the body so its your arm and not your shoulder that hold the bass. Some people add weight at the rear to make it more confortable to play.

    It's really a play-on-the-go bass. It sounds good enough but you'll have adjustements to do before it's fully playable.
    Small fingers will also appreciate its 30" scale.
    Price Paid:
    150€
