Cheap-ish and cheerful bass
RobbieTribe 15.08.2019
I bought this stingray because I had an itching for some humbucking action, and didn't own a bass with a maple fretboard. I am pleased with it.
PROs - The combination of black gloss with chrome hardware coupled with the maple neck and fretboard makes it a very smart and stunning.
- Since I am used to a five-string, the neck feels quick and thin, very comfortable and it makes stretching and moving around quickly effortless. Quite comparable to my Fender Jaguar.
- The pickup is bright with that classic stingray tone, great for more percussive techniques like slapping and using a pick.
- No visible damage and a flawless finish.

CONs - Pickup is quite hot and specifically caused a bit of trouble for a soundman at a gig because the E string is particularly prevalent. Easily fixed with a compressor pedal though.

Overall it's a top bass for a very decent price, and if you can't justify buying a Music Man (as was my case) it's great.

Good slap

Feels nice to play and has great sound. The material is not top notch, but still solid. Only thing is that other basses this price is better when it comes to precision.

Cool sound for this price

For me this bass is so cool, without any doubts, it sounds great and I like the design of classic musicman. Punchy middle and lows. I play this one on Gallien Krueger or Ampeg amps, thats why it sounds a bit better than on examples, approve.

Good alternative for the real thing.
Bit too skinny neck for my taste!
Other than that, typical Indonesian quality!
