I just purchased this item recently. Aesthetically she is a beautiful piece of art and solid piece of equipment. The price was middle of the road and for what you get well worth it.
Since she was new the strings need time to be broken in so for me the internal turner was a little off but just by a hair compared to when i plugged her into an external turner.
The one and only complaint i have about the guitar are the strings, specifically the G string. When playing unplugged the string(s) have thin metallic sound. The sound is really present when playing the strings open. The G string is the worst because the sound is prevalent even when fingering the frets above the 10th fret. I assume this will go away once the strings are broken in with playing and tuning so it really is just a minor flaw.
Beyond that i love this bass. The sound it produces when plugged in, is beautiful.
The sound it gives when unplugged isn't super strong but you can still hear it and would probably work fine in a small unplugged venue.

I've never owned an acoustic bass before, and got this one after futzing with it for a few minutes in the local guitar store, having gone specifically to trade a Modern-Player Telecaster I wasn't playing enough for an acoustic bass to go with the electric I play all the time. Primarily for practice without an amp and to have something to mess around with other people who are playing other random acoustic instruments. It is really quite a nice instrument, and I'm glad I got it. Especially considering how it cost virtually nothing, including the trade in. It sounds great, plays loud enough with a pick without being plugged in, sounds spectacular amped, and looks fantastic. The built-in tuner seems a little off (I had trouble tuning it with just the onboard tuner, and switched to an external number, and that worked fine. The onboard never seems to want to accept that any string is completely in tune…). But that also could just be me. Seems like a great value for a flexible instrument.

This bass is absolutely amazing! The shorter scale makes it perfect for people just starting out on bass. It's super comfortable to play and has an amazing tone! Awesome buy for the money

The T-Bucket is a medium scale acoustic bass that gives you sweet and lowdown tones for a very good price.
The neck has a convenient feel even for smaller hands. Its body is "grand concert sized" which is not too big, so it's easy to play seated on your couch to play with your favourite music or just noodling around.
It may be a bit silent for using it around a campfire but plugged in an amp and stringed with some nylon coated strings you get a deep bass tone that sounds almost like an upright bass.
The T-Bucket may not be the best choice for the bass pro but for guitarists and/or bass beginners like me it's the best choice to start with.
Big bang for the bucks!
