I'm loving this. Great for practice, as an acoustic bass, but it's when it's plugged in that this guitar comes to life. I was originally sent the fretted version, but Fair Deal Music were excellent about offering me the (lined) fretless version. It's amazing to get such a great 'double bass' sound out of such a small instrument.
The built-in tuner isn't very good - don't rely on that. Mine registers the tones of the D and G string, but not the E or the A. I use my chromatic tuner instead.
There is some talk of the passive pick-ups being a bit quiet, but I find them to be quite satisfactory. However, I took this opportunity to purchase an MXR bass pre-amp pedal too, which warms the sound, provides an EQ and serves as a direct input (DI) for those times when I don't want to bring an amp along.
