    Pros - Light, slim neck, easy to play
    Cons - Feel to much string vibration through the body of bass
    It's good if you have small hands or want a light bass. Good for a beginner but may soon want to upgrade. Overall it's only good, cheap and cheerful.

    Pros - Excellent quality at this price point! Great neck! Thin and fast!
    Cons - None really, again considering the price.
    I bought one of these used, several years ago, on eBay. My job sent me to a 3 week training course that required flying to and from, and I couldn't live that long without a bass!

    I removed the neck, and packed the body in one suitcase and the neck in another. Travel bass!!

    I was really surprised at the quality of the bass! I wasn't expecting much; hadn't played an Ibby in years (Fender guy) and was really impressed with the feel and accuracy of this bass. I did a setup at the hotel, dialed in the intonation, and didn't have to retune for the entire time! Loved the nice thin neck! Another reviewer said the neck was "slow". I don't know what he usually plays, but it felt almost like a guitar neck to me!

    The sound didn't knock me out, but I was playing through a little VOX headphone amp when amplified. I mostly just played it unplugged.

    When I got home, I put it up on eBay and sold it for the same amount I bought it for!

    Great beginners bass, and a good "knock around" bass, as well. I kinda regretted selling it, but I have some great basses, and it wouldn't have received much play time (and I think my wife is "counting" anyway ;) )

    $90ish on eBay used.

    Pros - Great sound, feel, and playability.
    Excellent value. Plays better than many more expensive basses.
    Cons - None
    This is a great beginner / intermediate bass. My girlfriend owns one, and we keep it in the music room alongside all of my higher-end basses. Every now and then I play it and I’m always, always impressed with the sound and feel, especially for the price. The output is very hot and the tonal range very wide for a passive instrument. Wish I’d have had a bass this nice when I was starting out.

    As of now, the action is a bit high and the bass needs a set up. Thinking of going with light strings and lowering the action; probably slap like a monster.
