Bang for Buck you said?
Kristian J, 06.12.2018
This bass is ridiculously cheap. By cheap i mean price-wise. This bass doesn't cost a lot, but for your money you get a whole lot of bass (although they forgot to install frets).

People like lists, so here you go:

Pros:

...Affordable
Affordable!
AFFORDABLE!!!
A whole lot of instrument the price considered

Cons:

Comes with round-wounds (I don't want my fingerboard torn to shreds in the nearest future)
Sharp "fret"-ends. The wooden inserts are quite protruding and will tear your hand up if you slide around as if a giddy child who just got a fretless to play with.

This is my fourth bass, but first fretless. It's easy to play, it sounds all right, a great learning tool, and sufficient enough for me when i desire to record some fretless noodlery. For that application (seeing if a fretless is for you and learning) I wholeheartedly recommend it!

This bass is impressive for the price!
Messier104, 27.01.2019
This instrument is very good for the price! Sure there are some minor deficiencies in the finish, wooden "frets" (for the positions) stick out very slightly but other than that it is quite well done, especially at this price point.

The bass is fairly heavy too. This is not a problem for me but could be taken in consideration.

Overall I'm very satisfied!
