I bought this as lefty ric-o-likes are very rare. I wasn't expecting much from it and had a few concerns that it might not be a great player. I was wrong on all counts. The RB-414 looks and feels like a top quality instrument. I could find no cosmetic flaws on mine. It also sounds excellent. A good punchy bridge pickup. The neck pickup is a little nasal. Between the two of them there is a wide tonal palette available from this bass.

I was concerned the top horn was a bit short and neck dive would be a problem but it is better than most fender style basses and balances well on a wide strap. The weight of mine was a very respectable 8pounds 10 ounces or 3.9Kg

The bridge is the one thing that sets this apart from most other basses. It looks like a ric bridge but is much easier to adjust than the real thing. It is however the source of my one gripe about the bass. Because there is three and a half inches from the ball end of the string to the bridge saddles it needs extra long scale strings. I'm not a fan of roundwound strings and stock HB strings in particular but when I tried to fit some flats to the bass I discovered that none of the four different sets of strings I had would fit, they were all too short. I had to order some extra long strings. If there was any indication of this in the product description, I'd have ordered strings with the bass from Thomann. The strings issue is only an issue because I didn't know about it in advance and had to wait for strings to be delivered. The extra long strings work just fine once procured.

Like all the other HBs I've bought this instrument is superb value for money. It would be nice if the lefties were available in colours other than black but I can't fault the bass in any other way.

Highly recommended.
