Saga basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by MeHill, Aug 24, 2013.

  1. I was wondering if saga basses are any good

    I do have one and in my opinion it's not great I have a pbass stylethe frets need a lot of help and pickups aren't loud other than that is decent

    Was just wondering if I got a dud or they just aren't great basses

    Are you talking the kits you put together and finish yourself?

    I've got a Saga Les Paul guitar and it turned out amazing. Has great flame maple top, decent construction and not bad tone. Feels great. Plays great. Well sure, it's not up to my Gibson tone, feel or finish-wise, but hey it was a tiny fraction of the cost and I did the finish job myself.

    I have looked at their bass kits based on my guitar experience and I wasn't as impressed with them. the ones I looked at just didn't seem to have the potential my guitar did. I might have looked harder had they had something with more than four strings.

    I think the Carvin kits would give you a much better instrument than the Saga kits.

    Saga are mediocre and diff need fretwork help. Electronics are also mediocre. Carvin kits on the other hand are very good as Bassbenj noted.
