...and dropped off my new SX BG80! I don't have pictures yet, but here are my first impressions. Fit & finish is excellent for a bass in this price range, and frankly for a bass under $300 period. The finish on the body is drip and run free, and looks very nice. The 3 tone 'burst is faithful to the Fender original. Looks as if the bass is made of 3 pieces of alder, but you can't tell it's more than one piece from more than a few inches away. They all have the same basic coloration and grain orientation. The neck is nice and straight, and has a matte finish. Feels very fast. The fretwork is a little above average in this price range, but there are a few sharp ends which need filing down. The tone? I was surprised. It sounds like a P bass. Not weak at all, as is typical with a lot of entry level basses. Even with the light gauge strings that came stock(too light for me!) it has a lot of depth and booty to the tone. There is a little bit of fret buzz, but I am sure that medium strings and a slight neck adjustment will take care of that. And no deadspots! At least none that I can find. How much do I like it? For $122(including shipping) it can't be beat, IMHO!. I like it so much that I am taking it as a backup on my gig tonight, and plan on using it on 2 sets. I'll give a more detailed review after I have played it for a few days.
