Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Long Scale Electric Bass:

whilst the pickup and electronics function will be just fine for most folks, this bass was elevated from good knock-about garage band status to excellent pro studio status with a change of all electronics and a good setup for action and intonation (the tuners, saddles, and truss rod all work quite well). an alnico rod vintage based pickup replaced the ceramic bar pickup, the mini pots replaced with larger cts pots and a .022uf tone pot cap ... also, the deep panel jack was removed and drilled out for an electrosocket cup and switchcraft jack. ah, mo' bettah. the round wound strings were replaced with flatwounds. even mo' bettah. no, the plastic nut doesn't require changing. the resulting lightweight bass (7.7#) is a joy to play, balances well on the knee or with strap, and will fit in with any genre of music from bluez to pop to hard rock.

Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Long Scale Electric Bass:

I received this bass guitar as a gift from my family this past Christmas. I am absolutely in love with this guitar. I own many bass guitars, from two Fender Jazzies, to a Squire Jaguar, also two acoustical basses, and a 1976 Rickenbacker 4001. This is just a beautiful playing, and sounding, bass guitar, as well having stunning looks. I am going to keep this bass for the long term. One of the Jazz's is for sale at this very moment... If you want something that has a unique look, and is easy to play and get many different sounds from, this could be your ticket. For the price,are you kidding? Recommended!

    Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Long Scale Electric Bass:

    i grabbed this up because of the price and because i wanted a new 4 string. the wood body gives this base a very great tone, my only con about the bass is the pick ups. if you get this, consider getting new ones put in. i had semour duncans put in, but that is just my preference. other than that this is a pretty solid bass all around.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Long Scale Electric Bass:

    Received one from MF and put it through my usual testing: Results were mixed in that the bass itself looks good, seems pretty well made and plays really nicely. Frets were in good shape and seated well. Intonation/ set up were good. The neck is wider than most other basses, but not uncomfortably so. The light weight of the bass is a real plus for me.
    On the negative side, I did notice some 60 cycle hum from the pickup that got very noticeable once it was plugged into my stage amp. The extremely loud hum was even more annoying when the bass was run through a chorus effect. Not good! But, when I gave it the "gig test", the sound (other than the annoying hum) was very good. Well balanced across the strings and more than enough edge to cut through the drums, guitars, monitors etc. and sat well in the overall mix. Depending on your eq settings, this bass can get deep lows and smooth highs that compliment a slap sound without sounding "clacky". But I had to cut the volume knob to zero after every song because of the loud hum.... So, I sent it back for a replacement and ... uh oh.... yep, same problem with the next one. I will try figuring a way to ground the pickup or changing out the pickup to alleviate the problem because otherwise the bass is quite good as is.
    I would recommend this bass but with reservations because of the pickup problem.
