    This is my first bass and I've fell in love with it. I've played guitar for years and always secretly had my eye on this, so the other day I pulled the trigger and now she's mine!




    I'm a noob, and I'm on an iPhone, so if those image links don't work I'm sorry, haha!

    Nice! I have the same one. Got mine last November. I've changed out the electronics in mine though. Got a full EMG setup in there.

    Nice! Love the black finish/black pickguard/maple board combination.

    Awesome man! I love the sound of the pickup so far, but I like knowing that I could put any pickup in there as long as it fits! The beauty of a battery compartment, eh?

    Yeah, any MM style pickup will fit. I did have to trim the pickguard a tad but that's it.

    Worth it as a whole though?

    Yeah, I almost went for the white finish/black pickguard/ebony board combination but, thankfully, settled on this beaut!

    Absolutely! Got the bass for $251 from Musiciansfriend and found the EMG MM pickup and BTS system for sale here for $60! Forgot to mention I still had the high output and adjusted the pickup way down almost flush to the body. Sounds great now.

    That beast for $311 in total, that's awesome! I actually got mine in a part exchange so I only had to put £100 towards it! I got rid of a guitar that was bugging me and got this. Pretty sweet deal :)

    Also, what the hell are the other two knobs for on the bass? The dude who served me in the store only knew that the knob nearest the neck was a volume control, and didn't know what the others are

    Had te same one and traded it in on a Sterling 34 which I traded in on my Ibanez SR 750. Man I miss the SUB, I loved the sound and the price.
