I am a new player without a lot of finger strength and not much time to play, so frets are great. Bought and used for Rocksmith. I’ve gotten a new bass that suits my style better and need to recoup some of the cost by selling this one, though I really do love it. Pretty hard to part with. Sounds and works just amazingly. The size is just right for a 5’3″ woman. About the same size and weight as a basic electric guitar. Action is low without buzz and it’s got a flat, satin neck that’s just a dream, especially if you’re just learning. I can’t find a single flaw on it and it does have a padded gig bag with ample pockets. Look up reviews on this little thing. It’s really impressive for the price. Bought from Trade Up Music, NOT FROM GUITAR CENTER! I got it in excellent condition. Not at all abused and very well set up.



The short scale length is GREAT for a guitar player having a hard time switching between guitar and bass scale length. It basically plays like a four string guitar only it has a smaller body. GREAT for teens or anyone who wants to play sitting on a couch or chair or older bass players struggling with mobility. With the “deader” sound of the half round strings it really doesn’t sound any different from a full length bass guitar. It’s a PJ, has one precision and one jazz pickup which makes it greatly versatile. Good attack with a pick, nice fat sound with fingers.
