Feedback from Owners

As expected from Yamaha, this bass continues to appeal to students, described as a nice looking guitar with equally good tone.

Comfortable neck feel gets a mentioned often, along with good build quality.

Some experienced users also commended it for being able to handle hybrid string weights used for alternate tunings.

There are a few who report string action issues right out of the box, which can be resolved by simple setup.

Others gave it lower ratings because of shipping related issues - always buy from a reputable seller.
