Well, I gave it a shot. This was supposed to be my early Christmas present. When the bass was delivered I discovered one of the rubber feet on the bottom of the gig bag was missing. Upon further inspection I also discovered the pre amp / tuner was mounted crooked. This could have been overlooked if it had actually worked properly. The indicator light lit up green as if the bass was in tune. Nothing showing flat or sharp. Last straw right here. After I finally got the bass in tune using my pedal it stopped working all together. Produced sound for about 5 minutes and then nothing. No reflection on the dealer but this is bull crap. Packed it back up and requested a refund. It's already down the road and I'm not looking back. What a waste of time and money. The good news? I already have a replacement on the way. A Washburn Stu Hamm AB40 for less than I paid for this piece of crap. Happy again!
