For guitars in this price range it can't be beaten. I've owned mine for several years now and it has many hours and miles on it. My Bongo HH 5 string is my #1 now, but my OLP is my back-up and the only 4 string I own.I'm glad I bought mine when you could still get the maple fretboard because it kicks a$$, I love it. Anyway, I had mine setup by a professional at Anderson Guitars and it has perfect intonation and sustain forever. I use the Steve Harris Rotosound flats and get a very heavy, smooth, deep tone. Buy this bass! And with the money you save buy the best strings you want and have a pro set it up. You will never regret it.

If you buy this bass, don't expect it to last too long if you use it actively. This makes a good beginner bass, nothing more. I bought this when I knew nothing about basses. After about 2 years of playing this bass with a band, it began deteriorating (the input jack completely doesn't work, the knobs stopped doing what they're supposed to...) the electrical system in this bass is so simple yet they found a way to make it horrible... the first time I opened up the knob compartment to try and fix the input jack, the wires jumped out at me and they were just disgusting, low quality wires. I had to put this bass through an effects box and a direct line into a laptop and master the sound for it to sound comparable to my new Washburn Force 4. I'm so glad I upgraded.

buy this bass

By FarewellmissBass

from Ohio

This is one of the best sounding and playing basses I've ever experienced. There is no need spending 1200+ to buy a real Musicman. This bass plays just as good if not better!

superb bass

By the hunter-HLvJa

from Provo, UT

I have owned this bass for about 6-8 months and I really enjoy playing it. I bought it off my uncle for $120. It was worth it. There was only one problem though. At band practice one day, it just gave out on me so I took it into the shop. All it needed was some fiddling with the electronics, and it was back! I love the way that it plays. It fits really well into your hands and the smooth neck allows faster playing. It looks really cool too. I would recommend it for players that are just starting, all the way to players that have been playing all there life. Amazing quality for the money that you pay...

I love my baby :)

By Tim of AFOS

from Sioux City, IA

What I wanted: Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray.Couldn't afford it, so got an OLP MM2.Second guitar owned. Will be the only one until I can afford a true Ernie Ball. I play punk. Been playing bass for 3 years and this is the best bass I have played. It plays smooth, is solid and just sounds amazing. I used to play on a P bass. This MM2 outperforms it in every regard. My old bass player had an Ibanez...not sure what kind, but this MM2 is better.I get compliments on how awesome or sexy this guitar is at every gig I play.If you need an affordable bass with versatility and style, don't hesitate to get this in your hands!

Review

By Thatguy-vV9qN

Overall, this is an amazing value for the price.I've only had a few problems with it.The nut busted at the E string the first week I had it. The input jack. This is a problem on EVERY low end bass it seems. After I opened it up and tightened it up, it was fine. Factory set up. Again, this is a problem with most low ends. Had buzzing on the d outta the box. Simple fix, but annoying.The good.The playability of this thing is amazing and the variety of sounds you can get is impressive. The bridge is very sturdy. I was skeptical at first but it is beastly. The tuners hold very well. You can easily go through a set without tuning this baby. Not to mention...its beautiful.If you don't wanna go down the fender path, but don't have the cash to drop on a musicman, get this. Once you put some love into it, you will be amazed at how good it can be.

Killer for the Kash.

By MCbass18

I don't actually have this bass, but have played it many times at my work. (A local music shop). Black with pearl pickguard. Unfortuntley, the first thing I noticed when I ripped this bass outta the box...is that it had a big ding in the fretboard. Once I plugged it in...I was Amazed at the sound! THIS BASS SOUNDS AWESOME!sadly, it does have a few faults in the electronics, easly fixed though. Besides that its a passive stingray, what else can I say...its based on one of the most awesome basses in history. I just wish OLP offerd active versions. GREAT! beginners bass.

Awesome Bass!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just got the black one this week, and it is absolutely awesome for the price. It is sold at a much higher price at a local music store, and I had played it there and liked it, so I knew what I was getting. I play rock, but it's also good for slap bass type of play too! The body is beautiful, and it has fat sound!

Good bass!

By Bass-daddy

from Dallas, TX

This is a good bass. Don't buy it expecting the outright amazing sound of a music man, but this bass is amazing for the price. Don't let the cost of the bass steer you away. I would rate it up there with a mexican fender p-bass. I use this bass for recording and in gigs, even though I own a fender p-bass and a sg. go get one now!

This bass is pretty kickin, i play in a hardcore/scream band, and its got a great low tone to it, it go along good in drop D with the heavy crunch with the guitars, the only problem ive had with it, was recording, it was such a low tone bass, all it would pick up is the low end of it, to record go with a Jazz, but this bass is amazing for live shows!! BUY IT

Not Too Shabby...

By Thevariablesbassist

from Towson, MD.

See all my reviews

I've owned this bass/played the bass for almost 4 years now and it's done me good from the first note all the way up to now where I'm playing out pretty much weekly with my band. The ups are: very comfortable to play, good tonal range, good overall sound for the money...The downs are: the 1/4" input nut and a few other little parts come loose frequently, and the weight is a bit much for those 3 hour sets...Oh, and I like it enough that I often miss school and work because I can't put it down. Overall, it's a tasty package for the money-highly recommended for the beginner/intermediate bass player.

just got it =)

By Detour to Brooklyn

from Elyria, Ohio

WOW....I just went to Guitar Center for the 10% off sale. I played around with about 20 basses, and this was deffinetly the best for the money. The thing that suprized me the most was the slim differance between this and the Musicman Stingray. There was so little differance i could barely notice. I have fallen in love with this bass and the looks are stunning. I HIGHLY recomend getting this bass if you have a pretty low budget. IT IS VERY NICE. email me for any questions.

great deal

By yolox

This bass sounds amazing even with the factory strings. I have played many different basses and this one stacks up to even the most expensive that I have used. Many famous musicians use the music man version which in my opinion is very similar. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER BASS FOR THE MONEY, TRUST ME!!!

Amazed again

WOW. What I great bass for the money. I love the finish in blue. It arrived almost perfect, I needed to do some small adjustments. It tuned great all the way up the neck. I love the big pickup. The neck is traditionally wide, but so are the SUB's and the other Music Man basses. The action is right on. If given the chance to buy another I would instantly. All other basses under 300.00 do not even come close.

Great Bass

By mmbassline

This is a great bass if you want the Stingray sound but don't have the cash. That's why I bought it anyways - it doesn't sound exactly like the Stingray but it's extremely close.

GREAT BASS, GREAT PRICE!

By ERK5000

from Cibolo, TX

Boy what a bass it is. For such a low price its got great tone to it. It's in my opinion one of the best tone's ive ever played with. It's really fun to play in funk style. I replaced the strings with D'Addario lighter gauge strings and its got more punch to it than before. I would highly recommend this bass if you like to play funk style or jazz. If your low in money get this one. Even the guy at the Guitar Center said this was such a great bass for its price. I say thats the truth. Ive never had so much fun playing a bass. The quality is nice. The color black suits me as its one of my favorite colors. Its got the features as well with the 3 knobs to control your tone, volume, and treble. Overall I really fell in love with this bass. You cant go wrong with a price like this and to me it surpasses some of the top of the line basses but not all of them.

OLP MM2 is an excellent bass

By 4string-0Ngc-

from Florida

I bought one of these, and liked it so much I bought another one. Contrary to what some may say, the neck is fine--that's a matter of taste, anyway. These things are solid, play well, sound good. One of the best values going.

Best bass tone

By Pinski

from Villas, NJ

See all my reviews

I bought this bass a week ago and I love it. The tone is so perfect and is 10x better than my old Ibanez gsr200. Every song I play sounds great on my Rogue 50w amp. Another great thing is that the strings are very close to the fretboard so it feels so comfortable and easier to slide, slap, pop, pluck, or pick any melody.
