    Comments about Mitchell MB200 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

    I played one of these at GC yesterday through an Acoustic BN3112 (nice amp!). The finish looked beautiful and the neck had a very nice shape. The bass was set-up with typical factory action (medium-high) and the bass still fretted-out at the 12th fret...not good. The bridge was functional, but a bit chintzy. The tuners are Gotoh GB7 clones, but really didn't perform well at all. The electronics were where I was really at a loss. The blend know was essentially a switch in that there was no "blending" at all; it gives you either the neck pup or the bridge pup.

    I've played professionally, but am now just a hobbyist. We're at an unusual point in history where you can grab a very decent bass for two Benjamins (Peavey Milestone???). While the bass looked fantastic and had a nice neck profile, I couldn't get a single usable tone out of it. If you're willing to just buy the bass as a neck and body, replace the pups and have the frets seriously dressed, then go for it. I think there much better bargains out there, though.
