Street Price:

Price Paid: 350eu


2 passive humbuckers

2 vol, 1 tone, 1 active boost

24 frets, 5 strings, agathis body, rosewood fingerboard

What I Liked:

The bridge is both more substantial and easier to restring than previous versions and entry level basses.

Humbuckers. I hate single coil hum.

Versatile sound.

5 strings.

Simple no frills look.

Good weight balance.

The neck doesn't feel like a table in my small hands, despite having 5 strings.

What I Disliked:

The 5th string lacks proper tension. Maybe heavier gauge would help with that.

What I Would Change: n/a


This is a 2003 model. Both the model and the line-up have changed since. You can probably only find it used.
