    I know that these don't have a great reputation, but has anybody gotten a good sound and a tight B-string with one of these?

    By standard, do you mean MIM?

    I have one. It was my first bass, and it's good as far as starter basses are concerned. However, mine and every other identical one I've seen in the local store have a pretty floppy B. I've spent a lot of time getting it to feel decent, and mine does feel better than most I've tried. Thicker strings help a little. Just don't expect it to be slap-able in any way, like with Warwicks and other high end 5ers.

    I'm sorry I couldn't offer much advice. Hopefully other members will give some input.
