I purchased this Breedlove Atlas Series Stage BJ350/CR4 Acoustic-Electric Bass and must say it is a well made beautiful bass guitar, from the solid western red cedar top, side edge binding and fingerboard inlays, to the Breedlove logo inlay on the headstock. The whole feel of the neck is nice. It is a bit on the pricey side but it does come with a hard shell case. It came strung with D'Addario EXP bass strings and it produces good volume but those strings are a little twangy for my taste. I wanted to sacrifice volume for a softer tone and changed strings to the Thomastik-Infeld Acousticore Phosphor Bronze (Nylon Core) bass strings but since they are a bit thinner, they sat down in the nut too far and I was getting buzzing on the first and second frets. I put back on the D'Addario EXP until I can get a new nut made up. So far I have mostly played it acoustically and don?t feel like I can comment on the electric amplified sound. The acoustic tone is good but not exceptional comparing it to my other acoustic bass, an Alvarez Regent Series RB30SC which is much less expensive. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a very good looking acoustic bass guitar with good volume and price in not the main concern.
Big beautiful bass with some real good features: Tuner, EQ, Notch Filter. The neck is a bit thick for what I am use to playing. Had trouble with dropouts on the E string below the 9 fret. Found out that the pick-ups need to be moved under the bridge, not for me to do. Beautiful craftmanship and an outstanding case. I think I am spoiled with my old Starfire w/ Alembic guts.
I bought this bass recently and once I broke in the strings the thing sounded beautiful. The part that I think most people want to know is how does it keep up with an acoustic guitar. I'm here to say that this bass came through and was heard clearly and not drowned out at all.The built in tuner is really a plus along with the option to plug it into an amp. All in all the instrument is aesthetically pleasing (the picture here does it no justice), audible in a preforming setting, and sounds great.
The tone of this Bass is absolutely beautiful. Once the strings were broken in, I was impressed by this bass's ability to bring out the fundamental of the note while voicing it's unique tone. The neck is a little thick for my small hands, however still playable. Like any other acoustic bass, you're going to get feedback if you don't EQ correctly, but this bass does a great job working well with any amp EQ or in my case my 10 band EQ switch. The electronics are great, easy to navigate. However, I'm not really impressed with the onboard tuner. But that's what a separate chromatic tuner is for. The abalone fret inlays and used in the outline of the body is a wonderful touch. The staining and wood grains are artfully well done without hindering the tone or articulation. I thought the price of this particular Breedlove was asking too much, and luckily I got it on sale. However, I still wouldn't regret paying the non-sale price for it. This is a great Bass for the intermediate player or the begining player that has money to spend. Compared with the Ibanez and Takamine counterparts, you'll like the Breedlove better. I owned a Takamine and parted with it after a year because no matter what adjustments I made, my E string was too loud, the D&G too light in volume and it would feedback no matter how you EQ'd.
