I have this series bass in a white color. I like to experiment and think outside the box being a bassist for 25 years, so I changed out the regular 45-105 gauge strings and added some piccolo strings on it! (The 34" scale is a plus too!!) I play through a Beringer "UltraBass" 400W head, and two 2x10 cabs made by Peavey and Gallien-Kruger, a Zoom Z-3 Multi-effects processor/looper(with software), a Digitech BP-200, an Electroharmonix "Phaser/Flanger" Pedal, and a Dunlop CryBaby Wah Bass Pedal. There is VERY LITTLE adjustments I had to make to enjoy this bass....AND THAT'S WITHOUT ALL OF THE PEDALS!!!! The tone is crisp, and clear with lots of clarity that I need for soloing...(I'm a heavy Victor Wooten/Stanley Clarke/Marcus Miller/Jaco Pastorius fan). Yes, there is a little fret noise that you encounter, but it can be fixed with a noise gate on a good effects pedal, not to mention adjusting the action or height of the strings on the neck. As one of the earlier comments stated, "you do get what you pay for"....but if you don't mind adding a little more than what you bargained for, it's worth every cent that you spent on it!!! This is a good bass for beginners or professionals, in my opinion, but just like any instrument you play, it's up to YOU to make it sound worth something!!! Peace & Love!!!

I bought this after reading good reviews and watching a video on how it played. I wanted a secondary bass that I could leave in Drop C tuning for harder rock and metal. My main bass is much different and is a jazzier and blues style, so I needed something different. I figured this one would make the cut since it had everything I was looking for in a bass at a great price.

This is a good instance of where you get what you payed for. Some products are inexpensive, and some are cheap. This, however, is cheap.

When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was it wasnt the right color. I ordered the dark blue that I had seen all over the internet. Upon opening the box, my bass was a very light, almost sky blue, which is definitely not what I ordered or what was advertised. But it wasnt a huge deal, so I put that aside. Then I noticed the condition it was in. There were a couple of dings and scratches in the finish, and it was covered in a good layer of dust and grime. Flipping to the back of the bass, there was a sticker that said "Assembled in 2008". I think that was where I shouldve turned away and sent it back, but I didnt. My mistake. I mustve gotten an old model or a "bottom of the pile" that had been shipped and returned a few times that they wanted to get rid of. I cleaned off the finish and whiped it down. I was feeling better about it now, so I plugged it up. I was aware from other reviews that the pickups are weak, and mine was definitely no exception. I had to turn my amps volume to max and the pickups all the way up to get it to the volume I wanted. After getting considerable fret buzz, I messed with the action for a while. I got it to where I liked, but still got alot of fret buzz. I inspected the fretboard only to find it was cheaply made. The board itself wasnt very flat. There were a few dips and bumps. In additon to that, the frets themselves were very cheap. None were uniform or even at all. Several were almost flush with the wood while others stuck out too far, some were round-edged while some were squared almost. It took a few hours of sanding and testing and tweaking to get it into playing condition. After that, I couldnt return it so I decided to ahead, I mean, for the price I payed, why not?

I stopped by my music store and bought a set a heavy guage DR-DDT strings, put them on, and tuned it down to Drop C. I messed with the amp setting for a while and I started to like it. Though weak and not very clear, the pickups do growl with a very gritty tone, perfect for the playing application I wanted. The highs and mids project with a solid low-end. I may end up swapping out the pickups for more power and clarity.

I regret not returning it for a better model, but for now, I reasonably pleased with how it plays after I've broken it in.
For the price, it has some pretty good features such as a P/J configuration and black hardware.

Nice basic bass

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

This bass played very well after some basic setup.

I have to replace stock strings on all my guitars with stainless because of a severe nickle allergy. When I took the original strings off, the plastic string nut fell off. I could see glue residue on the nut and the nut slot, but I guess it came loose when they installed the original strings. I didn't glue it back on because I didn't have any white glue at the time. I simply installed the new strings, knowing that the string tension would hold the nut until I got some glue. Well, then I picked up the bass by the neck my palm pressed against the nut and broke it at the low E string slot. Maybe if I had glued the nut on that might not have happened. Or, it could have already been cracked because it took very little to break it off. Anyway, I was able to super glue the broken piece back on and so far it is holding well. I've ordered a Tusq replacement nut. I'd planned on replacing the original with a better quality nut anyway. The original one is really, really cheap.

When I first got the bass it had a really high action and any attempt to lower it to 2.5mm at 12th fret on the E string resulted in really bad fret buzz on both the E and A strings. I adjusted the truss rod and checked for high frets. It still had fret buzz. I ended up putting about a 1mm shim under the neck where it joins with the front (i.e. farthest away from the bridge) of the body of the bass. This changed the neck angle just enough that I could get the action where I wanted it with little to no fret buzz.

The neck feels nice and it stays in tune pretty well. The pickups sound good and the electronics seem decent enough.

This is my first bass guitar and I wanted something inexpensive to play around with. This fits that purpose very well for me. I think it is well worth the price.

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass after having been asked to play bass in two different bands (I've played guitar my entire life). I chose this bass not knowing what my future might be in playing bass. I didn't want to spend a lot of money until I knew what I needed. I bought it at its sale price (not listed retail).

When I first received the bass, it was not the blue color show on the websites, but much lighter. Like other commentators, I decided that was acceptable.

It tunes easily and stays in tune, even when going from dramatic temperature changes. I haven't noticed any problems with frets, as some others have made. The action was set high, and since its adjustable, not much of a concern.

Tone is decent, however the tone eq dials are marginal in tone change. Again, I didn't consider this extremely bad as tone can be adjusted with other external options.

The line in jack was stiff and it is difficult getting the line all the way plugged in.

The first troublesome issue I experienced is volume. Compared to my instructors bass, the volume output is very low, doesn't come close to his. Every amp I used, I had to turn up the volume more compared to other basses used.

The volume dials on the bass seem inconsistent as well. About 9/10ths of the volume is a level gradual change, then the last bit its much larger step in output.

Within a few months of using this bass, I started getting a noise when using the bridge pickup. I opened up the back. Turns out a wire was about to break loose because the eq dials were twisting the wire every time I made an adjustment.

For the money, I couldn't complain much about this bass. It was a good start. But you get what you pay for in craftmanship.

I would recommend this bass as long as you buy it knowing that its just a starter instrument that you will want to replace once you get more comfortable playing. Or buy a warranty (I cannot comment if the extended purchased warranties would cover the issues I experienced).

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Great bass for the price, lightweight, decent action. Only problem is even after we had the neck straightened the first fret on the E string has some serious buzz, it's all buzz and no note. Going to bring it back again to try and fix it but that's been the only problem. I do not regret buying it.

    Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    I am a guitar player who wanted to venture out and get more evolved with the bass. I found this bass on the hot deals add and did some research on what a bass should have. This sweet axe is so diverse it can handle several different types of music and sounds amazing. A lot of people are saying the bass wasn't set up and the frets buzz. Let's be honest, what guitar ordered online or in the store is setup to any musicians liking? It took all of five minutes to set up the action and I would have though I was playing a high end bass. Rogue is know for putting out expensive guitars and this one is amazing. The feel, weight, and everything with it is amazing! I look forward to recording and playing several shows with this axe! Its a great deal for anyone who wants to learn and doesn't know where to start with getting a particular bass guitar. Glad its apart of my studio!

          If I had it to do over again, I would buy the same name Guitar, but I would have bought a 5 string instead of a 4 string. Before it is over I will probably still buy a 5 string. This is the best sounding guitar that I have owned, you can get any sound you want out of it.
          I Love It.

          for the money I don't think there is a better bass. It has a little frett buzz but i'm planning on adjusting the action and it should go away.

          I'm not a serious bass player, as I'm a guitarist, so i purchased it for something fun to play with, and to mix some tracks.

          looks great, and sounds better than any other bass i've herd in the price range.

          Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

          This bass was surprisingly nice for a low priced item. When I took it out of the box, one of the p-bass pickups was pushed in and a strap lock button was loose. Other than that the bass appeared to be in good shape. I tightened the strap lock button and popped the pickup back in place. The action and neck felt really easy out of the box. I am playing this bass through my Zoom B1on multi-effects unit into a 25 watt crate combo amp with a 10 inch speaker. I have not played this bass through a loud system yet, so I cannot comment on how good it sounds. So far I like this rogue bass more. I Bought the black one. It has a pretty nice appearance.
