I absolutely love this bass. Seems like a toy as described, but is really quite solid. I was pleasantly surprised when I got it. Had great action, great feel due in part to the short scale, and actually sounds pretty good in a band situation. Had a lot more thump than I expected, sits nicely in the mix, and cuts through well.
The amp and beats are great for practicing, this doesn't get very loud however. Maybe loud enough to jam with a single lightly played acoustic... But it's more for just personal practice and enjoyment.
Makes a great travel bass, fits in an overhead, and looks great IMO too. Very happy with my purchase.
