The finish of the alder wood on mine was just fantastic no bubbling, scratches or unfinished details. Only complain was a loose knob easy fix but where is quality control?
The combination of the maple telecaster neck with vintage tuners is a wonderful detail the chunky neck feels good reminds me of my 1957 reissue p bass it just makes it feel high quality and i think the additional massing helps eliminate any dead notes. The neck pocket has a unique chamfer detail i thought it was a mistake but it is typical from what i have read.
Now the fidelitron pickup is a star for me i play classic rock and worship music and all my notes are clear with no overtones, the definition is very clear even with cheap amps. The overall design, sound and shape is a knock out. I wish the pick guard could be removed but that is just me; unfortunately there is a hole for the cn machinery.

This is a 51 Precision Bass shaped guitar plus the left arm cut. It's typically a Precision for the playability, neck a bit large but finally easy to play with "normal" sized hands. Unplugged sound is comparable with any 51 Precision bass, wood the same and cut too so the only real difference is the pickup and what a pickup! No secret that the fidelitron is a version of Gretsch's filtertron, a humbucking pickup but not too fat. Result on this bass is a sound that stay in the familly of tone of the Precision bass but with a little less brightness and more medium and bass, pretty nice for rock in the Queen of the stone age's way (fuzzy noisy sound welcome!) or for blues or jazz or...well everything. This is the hot roded Precision Bass after all!

First off, I'm more of a guitar player than a bass player. That being said, here it goes.I mostly do home recordings and was looking for a bass. I'm no expert on the bass, and I have no opinion on the pros and cons of the various types, styles, etc. I just think it adds so much to the music, no matter what style. I did learn this one is a bit different, having the humbucker pickup, reverse tuners, etc. The bass plays very well, with a comfortable action. Fit and finish was well done. Had to tighten a few screws,no biggie. Also, it came with a gig bag, always a plus. The tone can seem a little uneven at times, but that could be strings, pickup height or whatever. Seems I can make it work for the most part within the context of the song. I don't know if this bass will really catch on, but for my purposes, it works fine.
