Different for a 5 string

By Morgan-l.XcI

from Winston-Salem, NC

I was excited to see this hanging on the wall at my local music store but when I picked it up I wasn't happy with the weight. The neck is great and theres no buzz of any kind. Good sound but it weighs nothing which is a real problem for me. Other than that it's good. Basswood would have been a whole lot better than agathis in my opinion, great value.


Great instument for your needs

By Hateraid666

from Alexandria, Alabama

I got this bass in a music store for my birthday and I got to say it is the best bass I could ask for. It has nor fret buzz, the pickups make it easy for small amps to pick up the low B, and it so clean. Plus if you're switching from a 4 string to a 5 string like me, it can be one of the easiest transitions you could probably make. Definitely the Bass that should try or own...


I'm never going to need another bass again

By NachoLibre

from Bloomington, IN

When I recieved this bass last christmas I was impressed with it instantaneously. The action was beautifully set up right out of the box. The tonal quality is superior to the high end spectors I have played in the past as well. If you want a solid instrument that will not break the bass, then this is the way to go.


Nice bass

By Matt Jensen

from Fredonia, New York

Great bass I love it for the price I got it for 375 from my local dealer. It's got the active pick-ups for the added touch and since I only play five strings is a nice one. It gives more of a punchier sound than my Austin Custom Eclipse.

from Telford , Tn.

I've played 5 strings for 10 years now. I like the extra range you get . I've been playing the BTB 205 now a little over a year . I get excited everytime I pick it up . It's light, it's easy to play , and it sounds awesome , either rockin' or slappin . Get one , you won't be disappointed .
