Out of the box a couple screws needed tightening a little bit as did the nuts for the control pots. Not unusual for most brands. I think the stock strap buttons too narrow topped and the screws where shorter then most. So I replaced those with some spare wide top strap buttons along with their screws, Build and qaulity to me is excellent. Even if it cost 3 times as much. Things like the really well contoured heal for neck to body joint are pretty much unheard of at this guys price. Fretwork is excellent. The lightweight mahogany body lends the charecteristic dark yet detailed tone that qaulity mahogany has. The slope for forarm cut is very nice. The rosewood fretboard is nicer looking then some Ive seen on much more expensive basses.The single P pup is just about the best Ive heard. With the tone control at around 4-5 it has a very dark and heavy tone thats still very articulate and with plenty of crunch and growl. At 10 for tone control it has a more trebly voice thats quite useful for more lead like tones without being overly bright sounding. Stock passive it gets great tone. One could add a basslines blackouts 2 band active eq if you wanted even more voiceing options. But I think most would be ok with it stock. For personal preferance I changed the stock chrome knobs with numbered, black speed knobs. And added fretlord glow-n-dark fretboard markers over the stock dot markets on the top of the fretboard. There is only a small amount of neck dive btw with wide strap. Instrument dips down to 2 oclock or just passed, not quite 2:30 at worst. One other plus for how they designed the eagle is the bridge is further from the end of the body then is found on a lot of basses (Ibanez, ESP Ltd, etc as examples). This results in a better fit to body imo if you like to wear your bass fairly low with end of body resting against inner leg and instrument pointing upward. That protion of the body is also less rounded and thus not as prone to slide. I use a standard BC Rich deluxe gigbag for mine. The same one reccomemded for warlock and bich guitars. It fits snugly lengthwise with a good 1 and half inches to 1 and 3/4 inches leeway lengthwise. You dont have to get the considerably longer bc rich deluxe bass gigbag for it. This is the best single P pup bass Ive ever played. And is better then many 2 pup basses Ive played. I've mainly played basses with two pups and 2-3 band active eq onboard. The Eagle 1 has a dark agressive tone that can get bright enough for very good lead type playing too and anywhere inbetween. 4-10 oclock positions of the tone knob range. Below 4 its more the wooly deep bass thing suitable perhaps for dub bass. The neck seems slightly slimmer then the BC Rich NJ series basses Ive owned previously. Not as thin as a Ibanez, but certainly more playable then a fender P's neck which is just find clunky cumbersome wide.
I prefer single pickup instruments. This is an awesome looking bass. Slap some Quarterpounders in it, and TEAR IT UP!
