Owner comments: David, Overall I think it is a good bass, it works for what I had in mind but there are some things to keep in mind:
All in all I would recommend the bass especially given the cost. It has no balance problems, has a consistent "industry standard" tone. The neck issues are personal and minor ones. Put it in the photo gallery!!
I just want to share with you the fact that wherever I take the red bass I have people coming to me asking info and/or complimenting me about it.
maybe it is the color, maybe it is the shape, I do not know. I still like better the other two -but from the response, it has something catchy... put a pic of it in the bass gallery just to see the response!
