I bought this bass early this year. it's a 2009 it has a few scuffs on it. i paid $79 for it. All my Fender Basses have rosewood fretboards, I've wanted to get a all maple necked Fender for awhile. The music store restrung it and did a fantastic set up on it. I bought it on the spot, hit a pawn shop and got a 10 gig bag that had a strap inside too. This has a good tone...I play it with the volume and tone up full. This is a one sound bass for me, but I like the sound. The tone knob muddies the tone, but I can get a great sound out of it.
I wanted a short scale Fender to play on a few songs...the cost was about the same as a pair of shoes, So I got a cute little instrument that sounds great and has a very nice neck. I don't know if the music store did anything to it but the fretwork and nut were above average. My only complaint is the tuners are not my favorite, you move them a hair and the note is half a step off. One in tune it stays very well. I may put new tuners on it, but they are working. It's not my main axe so they will probably last the life of the bass. The simple one ply pickguard was done nicely and the bridge is pretty beefy....even with only 2 saddles the intonation was very good. Not perfect but as good as that design will allow. I have seen several kids playing these, one kid was a fantastic player especially at age 11. I told him I was impressed and liked his bass. He said that bass goes everywhere with him.
With a lot of use I could see the tuners wearing out in a year. other than that, this is a nice affordable and good sounding instrument, and the short scale is fun to play

I just started playing guitar about a year ago and I loved it but every one plays guitar! So I switched to bass! I bought this bass at a pawn shop used and It still is great sounding! I love it!

I really love these guitars. Very easy to play for beginners and pleasent for more accomplished players. A nice tone and quite lightweight.
Well worth having one.

I needed just a small throw-around bass for recording, The sound is really nice for the price. This has been to hell and back with me and it still puts out great sounds. This is an awesome beginner bass.
