This is a wonderful bass for an incredible price.
It sounds just like it should, and feels just right. As is usually the case, the action was set up a bit high, but with simple truss rod and bridge adjustments, I was able to set it really low, and get lots of the fretless "mwah". The strings it came with were surprisingly fresh and playable.
The ebonol fretboard feels and looks great. It sure is far more durable than any wood, but round-wound strings WILL leave their print upon it, which is apparent immediately. After just a few minutes of playing I could see the strings winding imprinted in the fretboard. Not a big deal, but it will eventually make the fretboard look dull and hazy. I replaced the stock round-wound strings with nylon-wound flats anyway.
The pickups are nothing extraordinary, but very decent-sounding. They deliver the unmistakeable jazz bas tone very well. Im already thinking of replacing them with an EMG JVX set or some Bartolinis with an EQ, but its not because the stock pickups are any bad, but simply because I like to tinker with different pickups, and because I feel that this bass is well worth it.
