Great beginner to intermediate Bass Set
By Smiling Frog Reviews
[[VIDEOID:6b7393286318f05ebfa201eede44a4b0]]This was a gift for our young son, he really enjoys this bass. He is just getting started so we did not want to go crazy on his first electric bass set. This set exceeded our expectations, and is perfect for anyone who is getting started playing the bass. The amp is not very loud which is great for families, because while a child is learning the quality of the music they play can be a little difficult to dance to. With the max volume being fairly low it's not disruptive to parents or siblings which we appreciate. You can always upgrade the amp down the road when you're ready to rock. The bass itself appears to be a quality made instrument, and an incredible value. Please see the video for some of the details from a kid's perspective. To quote our son, "I kinda recommend that you get this this, cause it's super beautiful, it's awesome looking, and It is humungously beautiful."

Great gateway bass.
By Andrew Lovely
So when I first started thinking about getting a bass I knew i wouldnt be able to buy the top of the line $800 bass. So i took chance on getting this starter set and I do not regret anything.
-Pick up are still working fine
-Comfortable weight (After a few hours your shoulder may hurt but I think if you get a better strap you should be fine)
-Very beginner friendly
-After a while i started to hear a little buzz/rattleing sound from the head but I do not know where its at.
-Dont feel the tone knob effects to much of anything
-Very loud. (dont be a fool like me and crank it up thinking it doesnt pack a punch)
Bag: Its a bag, not much to review on that.
Overall: I feel this bass will lead me on to get a better quality and more professional bass. This bass is a beast and even tho it includes picks to start with im kinda leaning more to using my fingers. This bass will last you a while you lean the basics. Great use of tax returns.

Because it looks to me like it wasn't put together or measured right at all
By Travis Y.
I've just received the bass and the strings seem very far off the neck, though I know nothing about bass so I don't know if it's normal. I do know the 12th fret is nearly a half step off my root note on each string and that should not be the case. I attached some pictures if anyone can tell me if this neck is just completely cut wrong. Because it looks to me like it wasn't put together or measured right at all.
I really don't want to have to hassle with a return on this heavy thing... If anyone can tell me it'd be must appreciated.
