    Total garbage sound, but reasonably playable. My first ever bass, bought back in 1974 for £40 new. The pickup was so microphonic it would actually amplify your voice! Punk pinup Gaye Advert used one in The Adverts. Mind you, if I got the chance I would have one again just for old times sake. Short scale, narrow neck, great learner guitar because you can really fly around the frets.
