Seems the power jack on the unit has issues from what I have read. Mine has been working great but I have not used it on a gig yet. At rehearsal and home it has worked flawlessly. For $170 you can’t go wrong.

I previously owned the G50 which worked great. I see no drop off with the G10. The idea of no batteries and no transmitter pack attached to your strap or your pocket is great. The only flaw I could see is if you are looking for a good amount of distance then the unit might struggle. For my use of gigs at bars, clubs festivals and private events it's perfect.
Not just for bass guitar.

I actually purchased this to use with my upright. The tiny transmitter is so small it disappears on the tailpiece of the bass. With the pickup jack attached to the tailpiece, and running to generally small amps, having some klutz (generally busy sound personnel) trip on the cord is always a danger.
I like to simply walk out on stage after being introduced, and not have to then bend down and connect the bass. If you have a feature number, you can easily go out front of the band with zero hassle.
If you want to spin the bass or perform other shenanigans you're free to do so as well.
It works great with all my electric basses and EUBs. I was able to quite easily solve the recessed jack issue, at least on my Ibanez SRF-700 fretless. The output jacks on these instruments are easily long enough they can be extended with a spacer. I simply removed the jack, ran the nut to the end of the treads, put it back in, secured it with a second nut. Re-soldered the leads, it looks perfectly fine, and now works great with either the cable or G10 transmitter.
Nice unit, easy as pie, good value.
