First Bass

By: Jes Sammut on 31 August 2020
This is a well-built bass and great bang for buck. The quality is great for a bass at this price point. I have a few Artist guitars and really pleased with their quality, playability and cost - none feel 'cheap' and I tend to play the Artist guitars more than the more expensive well-known brand guitars. I haven't owned a bass before, but I am really happy to have purchased this model as my first. I did my homework on options and I am pleased with my choice. This bass looks and sounds great. As for all Artist instruments, the risks are low because of the warranty and returns policy. Also, the staff at Artist Guitars provide great customer support. My only suggestion would be to have a simple one-page manual to explain the electronics, but it did not take long to work out how to select the pickups and work the EQ.

Yeah!

I'm waiting for an amp to go with this, but I gave it a little test on a guitar amp when it arrived this morning. I'm happy. I mainly play guitar, but I like to play bass sometimes. I haven't had one for many years, I used to have a Yamaha of some description, this is just as good, but with the added bonus of active pickups. I've never had these before, but they seemed easy enough to work out, and I like the added tonal abilities. The finish is good. I'll probably adjust the action. Overall the package is excellent value for money. Which is par for course with Artist. I have no qualms about recommending this product, nor any other I have purchased from these guys.

A nice guitar at a great price.

I am very pleasantly surprised with this bass. Bass is not my primary instrument so I didn’t want to spend a lot and decided to take a chance. It looks good, feels good, and sounds ok with the original strings through the little practice amp that I picked up as well. It seems to hold its tune well despite being new. The action is the way that I like it so all I had to do was tune her up and go. If they are all like that it is a great bass for a beginner. It’s hard enough to learn without fighting the instrument as well. It’s fun to play. Whenever I walk past I want to pick it up and play which I guess is the ultimate test. A good instrument at an unbelievable price, especially with the other stuff thrown in. Definitely recommended.

Wow

Ok to start this off, i need to say this bass thumps. The pickups are phenomenal and easily blow the EMG 35CS/JCS's I have in my ESP EC400 by a long way. They are super rich and very bright. This bass also comes with a split pot (treble and bass) to dial in your tone, much like coil tapping on passive. The control knobs also have international indentations at the 12 o'clock mark for easy feel reference. The body is solid and the neck is really smooth to play, it almost has a nitro feel to it. From the factory the action is super low and very playable right out of the box (from the way it's setup out of the box I have a feeling they have been set up professionally prior to shipping) I have it tuned to drop c permanently and it required no adjustments to the truss or bridge and there is zero fret buzz in that low if a tuning. The tuners i would say are the only let down, they hold tune no worries, but just feel cheaper then the rest of the bass. Apart from that i have no issues. Overall, it's a great buy and with the added extras its a bargain.
