Amazing. Simply amazing. The feeling of the neck, your fingers sliding across its narrow figure. The tone is enough to make any Jazz player/appreciator faint. The three control knobs consist of Neck pickup volume, Bridge pickup volume, and Treble/Tone. Once you find the right setting for yourself, the sound melts your face. The sunburst body, indeed only adds to the classic vibe and feel for the bass. There are no Cons that I see in this bass. Nice tone, fret-markers for beginners, aesthetically pleasing, and overall great price. $299's in my opinion is the best price for this instrument, a steal, if you will. If anyone has any conflict with this bass, comments, or cons, feel free to announce them.
