This is about as good as it get's in the lower price bracket for a good, playable bass guitar. After a good set up(must be done, no question about it, all guitars need this...no excuses and no bad reviews just because you didn't do it...), it sounds good enough for practicing and some recording. Better strings are also a major plus as the included ones were all but lifeless. I used some Fender Steels and all was fine.

Build quality was above what I was expecting, and decent basswood is used instead of the usual mystery wood found at this price point. The electronics are ok, not scratchy or too limited...but the pickups are on the quite side which does limit what you can do out of the box. Hook it up to a few good pedals, on the other hand, and it sounds just fine. I bought this for practice purposes, and it fits the bill to a "T".

If you're a beginning bass player, this is a great choice, just bring it to a certified tech and have a thorough set up done, with proper strings put on and possibly a better nut(Graphtech, cheap and perfect), and you'll have a nice guitar that will do you good for quite some time. If you're a pro...well there are obviously better out there----for a few hundred more that is. This is a good beater, a bass that you wont mind abusing much, and that is not a bad thing.

As for MF and their policy of lie's about the condition of their so called "Mint" repackaged guitars, well let me say that a good 1/4"+ chip, right by a strap button all the way down to the wood, is considered "Mint" to them...so buyer beware. I only saved a small amount of money over that of a new one, but I learned my lesson here--don't EVER trust MF on what a guitars condition is, just buy new and be a happy camper. No issues with Rouge here, they did good, and this bass is a steal at the low price point, so go for it, just buy a new one, k?

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.

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Fantastic
I bought this bass mainly for the price and man was I SUPPRISED! After taking it to my local music store and having them tweak the neck and tune it properly it played just as well as a more expensive Yamaha I've played in the past. With out a doubt the best buy for the money! I love the look, features and sound, not to mention the comments I get about this Bass Guitar. If your just starting out or play professional this is the way to go.

It's OK

By BRENT HAMMER

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Nice beginner bass. Pretty good for the price I paid for it. Just wish the quality would have been a little better.
Great features, I really like the two different pickups because it gives you versatility.
The pots are too big and the P style pickup moves up and down. I tried to tighten it with no luck.
I purchased mine a couple of years ago for a little less.

Not bad at all.

By Luke Wynn

from Minnesota

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

This Rogue LX200B bass is among the best beginner basses I have ever played. I bought it used from a friend, and the intonation was a bit off, and there were problems with the output jack, but that came from years of sitting in a freezing cold garage in Minnesota.
It stays in tune wonderfully, and it's easy to work with as far as replacing strings or adjusting the bridge goes.
After some minor repairs, the bass sounds wonderful. I replaced the strings with some Power Ernie Balls and the notes rang like a bell. The neck is a bit wide, especially closer to the body, but I prefer wide necks anyways.
It's smooth, inexpensive, and definitely worth the buy, for a beginner or otherwise. It's durable, looks good, and can stay in tune after dropping it on the stage and falling on top of it.
I recommend this bass fully to anyone just starting out, or even someone who wants a good cheap bass to throw around on stage and last you a while.

Ok Bass

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Not terrible, but not great. Wish I bought an Ibanez instead.
I rated the features a five, because the E string is buzzy, the neck is wide at the bottom, and the strings are crap
It's a good bass for its price. Nothing special.
Definently a good value, though I would drop money for a Fender, or a BC Rich

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 would certainly recommend this bass to any beginner or returning enthusiast.
This bass is quite simply outstanding. It is in short, fast, comfortable and beautiful. After many years away from playing, the LX200B warrants the great feeling of getting back on the strings.

Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Right off the bat and bottom line, this bass is a great purchase as a first bass and still decent as a bass for someone on a budget. I could pick things out that I didn't like but for almost half off on sale, I'm pleased! If you can wait for a sale that would be best but wouldn't be a bad purchase at full price.

Not for any particular reason...just as background info, I've been playing bass for going on 10 years now and feel I know my way around a bass at this point. I just got this today for my 13 year old brother who wants to start playing.

I had this shipped to me before giving it to him because I thought it would need a thorough setup but I was pleasantly surprised to find it really didn't need much! Upon unboxing, the only thing I found was the action too high, which I fixed. However on the positive, the neck was set flush to the body (no ugly gaps), the frets do not have sharp edges, very minimal pickup noise, and the nut was flush and doesn't seem too weak/fragile. Two things that stuck out to me though is that the pickups are pretty quiet (just turn up the amp! :D) and that a new set of strings would definitely make this sound noticeably better though.

    Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    Once again I'm amazed that someone would put a guitar in a box and send it out when it needs setup work. You'd think that they want the customer to be unhappy on purpose. What purpose? Rogue and Squire make OK products but the MF people don't seem to be helping sell any of their products.

    Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    This was my very first bass seven years ago. While I have moved up since then, I do keep this one around for noodling on. While it isn't the best one out there, it isn't all that bad, especially for just starting out. Running it through a Rumble 75 yields a pretty good sound, and the P and J pickups, while not the highest quality, have a nice tone range. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's starting out on bass or is on a budget. It certainly gets the job done.

    Unbelievable Value

    By dhellender

    from CA

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    I'm a guitarist who recently decided to buy a bass to fool around with and record some simple bass lines when an actual bassist isn't available, and when I saw the price of this instrument I couldn't resist. I've messed around on friends' basses in the past, and honestly this instrument sounds justas good to me but cost less than half as much as the ones I've played in the past. I've been very pleasantly surprised by it.

    Whether you're a beginner just starting out, or an experienced bassist looking for a "beater" instrument to just throw in the car and take with you wherever, I would highly recommend the LX200B. I seriously doubt you'll find anything else that sounds this good and plays this smooth for less than $300.

    TL;DR This bass is awesome for the price. If you're thinking about buying it, you should just go ahead and do it. It's so cheap...why not?
    This bass features a split-coil neck pickup and a single coil bridge pickup, each with a volume and tone control allowing you to really manipulate the sound. The tuning keys are large and easy to turn, and this bass stays in tune nicely. Large cutaway for easy access to upper frets.
    I haven't owned this bass for very long, so I can't comment on its long-term durability, but out of the box this bass feels solid, sound great (once you tweak your settings a little to eliminate buzz), and it plays really smooth. The volume and tone controls work well.
    More bang for your buck than any other bass I've played.

    Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    Like all musicians,I took a little time to do some minor set ups
    to get a personal feel. It's important to understand the instrument
    you're playing. Once you spend some time with this bass you'll
    get to love it.

    I using it now for projects I'm doing,including remixes,it was well
    worth what I paid for it.
    The cortrols are smooth,the tuners are easy to turn,
    and it plays nice,even for someone that never played bass.

    Even as a guitar player,I got used to playing it in a mattter of hours.
    It has a solid feel,I owned an ealier version of this bass,and I can say
    the improvements are enormous.
    I've seen basses similar to this that cost ten times as much,If you're looking
    for quality and value,you found it!

      I bought it to learn bass. I have some guitar experience, more than beginner, but not pro. Very serviceable bass. I have spent about two weeks with the bass and a beginners book. I tuned it up, no fret buzz, but that has been playing and learning the first position. Electronics, I have a little electronic noise thru the amp with the tone controls which can be dialed out. Sometimes fingers on the strings quiets it down, sometimes it disappears. Seems like if one pickup and the associated tone control are used, it is fine, Use both pickups and tone controls, a little noise. Probably have that looked at one day, when I have learned enough to have it professionally set up. For now very pleased with the quality, price, as I bought it on sale, __.

      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).

      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.

        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!

        Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

        I bought this bass because well, I just needed a new one since mine currently has some problems that I need to fix up. Being that I play mostly heavy metal, metal and punk, I thought this bass would be a good idea. I was partially right. I should also mention that I bought colored strings to go with it because I simply liked the look.

        When my bass got here, I took it out of the box and decided to change the strings. Much harder that expected. The string holes in the bridge are smaller than your average string so putting my new strings in was a pain.

        Along with the string problem, the truss rod needed to be elevated more. And that resulted in having to take the D-string off of the nut and unscrew part of the headstock, just to get to the truss rod. When I actually got to the truss rod, that thing was covered in dust and not to mention I could barely fit the Allen wrench into the rod.

        After that was fixed, my bass was ready to go. So, despite the problems - I would recommend this bass to someone who knows what they're doing or someone who knows a good place to get their bass fixed if it has these issues.

        Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

        Right out of the box I knew this was the new bass for my band's recordings.. It might be only in the $100 range & it's not one of those "you get what you pay for" kind of vibes to me. It's more like "this is a new line of guitars by an underrated fresh brand" Rogue might not be heard of much but they put together a hell of an instrument for the price.

        I've played it for a day now & started jamming on some songs I made, to my surprise the playability & action of the neck is awesome. Easy to maneuver, even with faster/more extreme styles of music.

        The only con for me is the fret buzz, but that's easily fixed with the hex wrench provided with the bass (not as described) also coming with a practice cable about 4 feet long.

        All in all, I highly suggest you buy this bass! Its playability alone will match any Bassist's needs, as well with tone. Jazz/Rock/Metal/Punk etc etc, this is a good bass.

        666/10!!

        *Especially reccomended to more extreme metal musicians*

        Awesome Bass!

        By Julitza Ortiz

        Comments about Rogue LX200B Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

        It is a fantastic bass. I'm only 14 and a begginer bassist. However I know it's very good quality cuz it sounds amazing, it's not very fancy looking but it is an awesome bass especially for starters like me. I use it for small gigs like playing in my small church, and I love it so much I named it onyx (it's black). I highly reccomend it.
        It's very good sounding and sturdy.
