        Comments about Axl Badwater AP-820 Electric Bass Guitar:

        This was my first bass, and it was a great one. It plays so smoothly, and it's unbelievably durable. I've had mine for over 3 years now and it isn't showing any signs of damage anywhere on the bass. I would definitely recommend this bass, it's quite spectacular.

        Great Bass!!!!! Amazing Price!!!

        Comments about Axl Badwater AP-820 Electric Bass Guitar:

        I got this Bass used and It was a steal, I've played this bass at many concerts it's pickups have amazing tone. And I love the worndown look that all axl guitars have. The only reason I gave the quality a 7 was because one of tuners was very loose but that was because it was a used guitar. Besides that I recommend this bass to anyone that's a beginner or professional.

        Love this bass!

        Comments about Axl Badwater AP-820 Electric Bass Guitar:

        Features: gave it a 5 because it is what it is supposed to be - a Precision style bass, plus the fact that it is NOT HEAVY, and the Crackle Brown/White finish is quite attractive.Quality: gave it a 3.5 because it certainly is above average in quality - everything works properly, the fit is good. I had to tweak the neck and the intonation, but no big deal. AXL provides the allen wrenches, and it dialed in easily.Value: are you kidding? This is my second AXL guitar (bought a '62 Strat copy about 6 or 7 years ago). I am very very happy with both of my AXL purchases - so happy that I really don't see any reason to consider spending more money for some other brand.Overall this is one of the best purchases I have ever made. I don't spend a lot of money on my instruments anyway. AXL guitars are a fit for me.

        Pretty Cool

        By Vet

        from Cali

        Comments about Axl Badwater AP-820 Electric Bass Guitar:

        When I was looking for a new bass, this, in the brown, was one of the basses that i was considering. Its insanely light, and is very balanced. The price is AMAZING of course and the pickups are okay. My only gripe with the bass is the tuners. They feel very gummy, and you have to fight them a bit. Over all this is a small issue. Especially given that one could by this in two weeks with a minimum wage job.
