Nice budget bass
leshka, 21.12.2020
Overall very nice budget bass filled with features, highly recommended. In my case neck wood grain is just great, with prefect radial cut. Fretboard edges are very noticeably rounded which is very nice feature that gives the neck very ergonomic feel along with satin finish. Frets are as good as they need to be, they're smooth enough, no fret buzz. Maybe professional luthier with all his diagnosis tools could find something wrong about them but I couldn't. Tuners and bridge are probably pretty basic but they do the job. Tuners work smooth and precise enough and holds fine. Bridge have all the adjustments and also got option for throught-body stringing. Preamp works as advertised and expected (you can find video on YT where Marcus himself explain every knob). Wiring done great, electronics cavity and cover are shielded with graphite and foil which I didn't expected at all. For the price it have very nice touches here and there all over the instrument. My only complain is about frets and nut installation since guy who worked on them had left glue marks here and there and nut got dirty from wood stain so I had to clean it up by filing and sanding. Thus I'm substracing one star for quality control. But still nothing is wrong with it as an instrument, it feels good holding in hands, everything works properly and it sounds good. I'd say it pays off every penny and highly recommended if you're looking for new bass guitar in this price range.

Unfassbar gut, unfassbar günstig.
Toddy S., 19.01.2021
Was man für knapp 300,- € als Gegenwert bekommt ist wirklich erstaunlich gut. Bin eigentliche "nur" Gitarrist und nutze den Bass für Pre Recordings meiner Songs. Deckt alles ab, spielt sich wie Butter, ist extrem sauber verarbeitet und liefert durch die tadellose Hardware und Aktiv Elektronik ein breites Soundangebot, das allen Anforderungen gerecht werden sollte. Lediglich die etwas klobige Optik des Haedstocks trübt das ansonsten ebenso tolle Erscheinungsbild. Das rechtfertigt allerdings keinen Punktabzug. Wenn Du einen guten Bass suchst ohne ein Vermögen ausgeben zu wollen, kauf diesen. Daumen hoch.
