As soon as I brought this bass home I tried to change out the strap holders with locking holders. The screw stripped out and I had to exchange it. Also, although the intonation was checked at the store with a guitar tuner, my strobe tuner said it was off. This was easily fixed by moving the adjustable metal pieces on the bridge back on the A and D strings. That did the trick. When I started playing it through my Mark Bass amp, I couldn't put it down. The sound was so rich, clear, full and warm. The sounds you can get out of this by using the bass and treble on/off switch were incredible. Add a lot of treble and you can make it sound raunchy. Use only bass and it has an incredible low end. I will play mostly with a blend of the two by turning both the treble and bass knobs off. I also love the scale as it is much easier to play than my Fender P bass. You can also get way up high on the frets. The solo switch acts like the active switch on the Fender American Deluxe Jazz bass, which I also considered purchasing. I'm not sure how they do that without using a battery. The light weight and good looks are two more captivating features this instrument offers. Our band plays classic rock and this is perfect for that. Because of the various tones you can get, I'd say it would fit with most any genre. It has re-kindled my love of music.
