4.0 out of 5 stars Mine Even Arrived in Tune!, 20 Jan 2008
Absolutely wonderful. The guitar has a lovely appearance with what could look like a lovely handmade body (though for the price I doubt that it is). It has a delicious tactile quality which left me not just playing it but holding it and just looking at it all day for the first day after it arrived. It also sounds fantastically resonant when plugged into an amplifier - and could easily compete with many electric basses of a greater price for sheer drive. It has a very broad tone control and can vast provide a number of sounds - from Lemmy, via Chris Squire to Stanley Clarke, quite possibly!

My only slight critiques (and the reasons for it not getting the full five stars are thus: it has a strap button at its back (it's also the amplifier output). Could it not also have had another at the front end? As it is, for the time being I have a strap attached to the head of the guitar, which is nothing like as good. How much extra would this have added to the cost? The other critique - and this is a very slight one - is that the action was just a little high, but this is in comparison with electric basses (I used to be an owner of a couple of delicious Rickenbackers and a Steinberger) and it is exactly what I would have expected for an acoustic instrument.

So all I can say is this. If you're looking for an acoustic/electric bass and want to try one - give this one a go!
