    Bought one as a travel bass!
    4/5, 4 out of 5, reviewed Apr 15, 2015
    Build Quality:
    • + Excellent quality at this price point! Great neck! Thin and fast!
    • - 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 ;) )
    Price Paid:
    $90ish on eBay used.
