This is a good acoustic bass for the money-however-you have to realize that you get what you pay for.The bass was set up poorly,and had to be adjusted to eliminate (or lessen) fret buzz.Also,when plugged in I noticed that the low E string was not being amplified by the bridge undersaddle pickup.This was because the plastic bridge had a "nub" on the bottom and was not contacting with the metal strip.Once I filed that down and re-inserted the bridge it worked fine.Sooooo,what we have here is Q.C. issues at Fender China.But once it is set up it plays great-fairly loud unplugged with a nice tone.It's a full size bass(34") so it can be a little intimidating for those with shorter arms.The wood tops and back are a crap shoot with these imports.On mine the top is almost perfect and the back has a weird looking imperfection,but nothing worth sending it back when it sounds this good.So,if you know your way around the guitar workshop give it a try.If not you might want to go a little more high end and save yourself some headaches.

Great performance for a reasonable price.
By S. Chandra Naraine
Product arrived on the date mentioned and it was in great shape due to the adequate packing and insulation. I'm very happy with this product for the quality of workmanship and sound. I've been using this instrument since the day it arrived and I'm pleased with this purchase. I would heartily recommend this instrument to anyone looking for a moderately priced but professional acoustic/electric bass guitar.

Quality instrument at a great price
By Amazon Customer
This is a good quality instrument at a good price. I've played bass for more than three decades, and this instrument fit my needs for an affordable acoustic bass. Great tone amplified or not, nice action out of the box. Build quality is good. Can't wait to put this to good use jamming on the porch and playing "unplugged" shows.
