I bought this bass in metallic blue several months ago with the intention of transforming it into a 10-string bass, five pairs of strings each tuned in octaves. I had to get a new bridge and cut new string grooves in the barrels. I had a new nut professionally cut. I put a set of D'Addario strings for an 8-string bass plus a new .130 B-string and a .050 for the octave B string. I re-did the head stock, by filling the original tuner hoes and re-drilling ten new ones. I also painted the headstock to match the body and put a squiggly metallic blue stripe down the back of the neck. The end result is astonishing. This little bass has held up to the tension of the additional strings. The intonation and action remained low, and I even got rid of a bit of fret buzz on the fifth string. I don't recommend anyone trying this with a lot of prior experience, which I have. I didn't touch the pickups or the electronics, because it sounds great as is and has a very wide tonal range. I don't know about player's taste for the pickups, or maybe I just got an exceptionally good one, but the pickups on my Rogue are pretty darn strong. The bottom line is, this inexpensive bass is built like a tank even for a bolt-on design. I feel it is a very good value for the money.

Opened the outer box and then inner box, which was corrugated cardboard 1 ply thick, no reinforcement at top or bottom with Styrofoam or additional cardboard. Box was like a gift box where the top covers the bottom, which masked the fact that the lower box was torn apart at the bottom, and a shipping label was used to cover it.

The base was wrapped in thin white foam, and when I removed it the body was chipped on the bottom with abrasions across the back, one of the tuners was missing a screw, and two of the pods for the tone and volume were missing. It looks like the box gave way in the manufacturer's or Musician's Friend's warehouse (inspection sticker from manufacture leads me to believe the latter)the bass fell out and was somehow drug or pushed across the floor on its back, then re-boxed and shipped to me. Got a return authorization and it's on it's way back ASAP. Will try one more time with another order, but so far of the 5 Rogue guitars and basses I've ordered, only the 2 acoustic electrics and Six string bass were keepers on the first try.

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

I have been a musician for 25 years playing mostly bass guitar and some guitar. This Rogue bass is my favorite to play. I have 2 Squier basses that cost more, but this one has alot better sound. Only problem I have had is the tuning keys (2 of them) broke and pegs crumbled after about a year. Bought some Ken Smith tuners and this has been a solid bass for the last 11 years.

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass thinking it was going to be a mess around bass.Oh was I wrong.This bass should be worth twice it's value.The neck is slim and offers a fast playing element that other basses lack.The pick ups sound amazing for stock pick ups.The only fault I found was the loose low B string. It was playable but had to stay at B or higher otherwise it was too loose.

LX205B 5 STRING SERIES III ELECTRIC BASS

By mike dibrango

from New York

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Alot of bang for the money. This is a great way to start playing 5 string if you want to test the waters.
I have been playing 4 sting bass for over 25 years and recently purchased a Squier 5 string bass and recently sold it because the neck was too wide for me. However, I did enjoy the range of the 5 sting and decided to try the Rogue. The only other Rogue product I have is a mandolin, which I like, so I took a chance. I was more than impressed with this bass. Not only did it play better than the Squier, it even had better tone, which surprised me because the Rogue is basswood and the Squier was an alder body. Which leads me to believe that the Rogue may have better pickups. It is also more versitle with the two volume and two tone knobs. I just bouht it this week and plan to play a worship service with it on Sunday. Overall, this bass is alot of bang for the buck.

Great for the price.

By James Stoner

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

I got this because i wanted a 5 string to add to my collection. I already own a P-bass and a Jazz bass. The bass is light weight and has great tone. This bass just may become my main player. If you want a 5 string and don't want to pay a forture, give the Rogue a shot.
It got all the standard features you would expect.
I was very suprised, the quality is very good for a bass at this price point.
A great value, could easily be worth double or more than what these sell for.

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

While the pots are flawed along with a bad fret and a weak neck pickup, this is a good bass that definitely conquers the beginner category. I would, however, purchase the LX405 which has more features and a 35" neck I believe.
I have had this bass for 2 years. I own the older P/J style 5 string. It's got plenty of features for what you pay for. Tuners work fine and can keep it in tune for a long session and a couple days afterward. Plastic nut, not worth upgrading. Wish the neck was 35". Though the neck is bolt-on, it's cut in pretty deep which helps with the resonance and sustain. After raising the pickups, I can get a deep sound with a slight growl, sounds pretty good for such a cheap bass. Bridge and truss are easy to set up. The pots are a little scratchy but they work. The treble seems to work fine but the bass doesn't seem to make a difference.
This is a pretty darn good bass. It needed a setup, which anyone with a couple Allen wrenches and a screwdriver can do theirselves, just watch a how-to on Youtube. Not sure what the body wood is, the LX405 is basswood so I'm assuming this is too. Like I said earlier, the pots aren't great and the pickups sound like a higher priced squire or a cheap fender, not too bad. The 22nd fret on the D string is a little short so that note doesn't really come out. Fret ends are fine, not smooth, but they don't protrude from the fingerboard. The B is floppy. I bought a set of Rogue .130s and it's a lot tighter than the .125 Ernie Balls but I would recommend some .135s. It plays very well once set up. The strap button fell out but it was easily fixed with a toothpick and Elmer's glue.
While not a perfect or great bass, it's definitely better than a lower priced Squire or Epiphone. It's a great value.

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

MUSICIAN'S FRIEND:
I ordered this bass on the afternoon of June 3. I chose the free (4-6 business days) shipping, and received it on the morning of June 6. Can't complain about that

THE PACKAGE:
The outer box was undamaged, and well protected. The inner box had a hole where the bridge side strap knob punched through.

SET UP:
The neck required 1/4 turn tighter to bring the neck relief to 0.4mm at the 8th fret. I was able to lower each string a little from there and get no fret buzz. Each string needed minor intonation adjustments. I had to let the pups out to their maximum height in order to get any reasonable volume going. Also, I went over every single screw, nut, and bolt and NOTHING was loose on it.

THE APPEARANCE:
Overall: Once unwrapped, the bass was in pristine condition. No, scratches, dings or dents anywhere on the bass.

Body: It is wood coated with what looks like an indestructible layer of polyurethane/plastic. The volume/tone knobs are metal. The bridge is the same generic model as was on my Dean Edge. I swapped out the strap buttons for strap locks immediately.

Pups: Honestly, they are garbage. I have a 250watt Carvin MB210 amp in my apartment. I have to turn both volume controls, and both tone controls to maximum to make this bass be heard with the amp volume at "8". And I'm practicing by myself.

Neck: I read a LOT of reviews before I purchased this product, and besides weak pups, most problems people encountered were in the neck. Either I was lucky, or Rogue has addressed these issues. My neck is straight and true. The fret ends are well filed and smooth against the neck. A lot of people complained that the frets were uneven, requiring very high action, or getting a buzz. Rogue seems to have addressed this by placing the neck in some sort of sanding machine. Each of my frets is flat where the string makes contact, and different frets have different amounts filed, but I have low action, and NO BUZZ!!! The neck is made out of two pieces of Maple fused together where the headstock leans back. I think that any low priced entry level instrument will be the same. My Dean Edge was the same way. Finally, the truss rod turns smoothly making no sounds of sticking against the wood.

Headstock/Tuners: The headstock is in excellent shape. The tuners were a little sticky at first, but I loosened the screw in the key, and turned it back and forth several times to get the grease all over the gears inside it. Then I tightened the screw just snug, not tight, and it is easy to tune, and stays in tune for days.

THE REVIEW:
I bought this bass for three reasons:
1.) The truss rod in my Dean Edge broke, and I wanted another low priced back up instrument.
2.) I am thinking about buying a very good 5 string in a few months, and want to know if I like the way a 5 string plays and feels.
3.) Rocksmith and Band Fuse seem to like lower end instruments over my Ibanez SR1200 with LaBella Strings.

I didn't have very high expectations when I ordered this instrument. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. I have a solid (well built and balanced) body. A straight neck that plays fast and doesn't buzz. And it stays in tune. That is worth the money that I paid for it right there.

The strings are cheap, and were quickly replaced. But I replace the strings on every instrument I get. And honestly, I didn't hate the sound of these strings as much as I hated the Elixers that came on my SR1200. But strings are a highly personal experience, and your experience might differ.

Because the pups are cheap, they are virtually useless. I have to turn everything to max, and my amp to "8" in order to hear this bass. My amp has tons of tonal adjustments so I can still get the sound that I want from it. However, I don't think that you should let the bad pups turn you away from this bass.

If you are brand new to learning bass, these pups will let you play, and you are probably better off not going too crazy with tonal varieties while you are just learning the neck, notes, and scales.

If you are somewhat experienced with the bass, and want to try a 5 string, you can get really good pups relatively cheap and turn this bass into a real contender for a very small investment.

In the end, it's all about managing your expectations. For the money this instrument costs, you won't get a world class sounding axe. No matter what manufacturer you use. If you don't mind a stable sounding instrument with no real tonal variations, or if you are willing to invest in some new electronics, this bass is a GREAT deal.

RATING: 4 out of 5.

Best decision I ever made

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

I wanted to up grade from my 4 string to a 5 string but didn't want to spend to much money. I saw the Rogue bass and figured for the price I would give it a shot(not out to much if not satisfied). The neck action is so awesome, very easy to play, also the sound this bass gets I can compare to much more expensive basses. I feel this is one of the best decisions I have ever made concerning music. .

Good Buy

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

I'm a music major grad, 20+ years playing bass and this is a good buy to get into a 5-String. I did take it to a guitar shop to have it intonation tuned, new strings, neck check, bridge checked, etc, etc ( $70). Tuning was off past 12th fret, but it's mass produced by China. I did this because I'm particular and I wanted this bass to be acurate. I see some other people had the same intonation problem as I. It is built pretty solid, I was overall impressed. Neck is pretty narrow, which I like, it's not that heavy so it's easy on your shoulders. Great paint finish on the body. It's really a good buy, I would recommend.

Like I said the volume and tone knobs came loose but that's common and everything else works perfect.
Good features. Two tone and two volume controls are nice.
The knobs came loose and I had to glue them, but other than that everything works fine. For the price I don't think it could get better.
Great guitar for the price. If you want a 5 string that doesn't cost a lot this is a magnificent choice.

Plastic Finish

By Christine Markesteyn

from Orlando

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

Overall this bass is awesome. It plays and sounds like an expensive bass, and it costs less than a hardshell case for an expensive bass. If you can swallow your pride and rock a no-name bass, you will find yourself in bottom-end bliss. If you cant, you will spend the same amount, or more, on a bass that is a complete piece of crap compared to the Rouge. Just don't get the white one unless youre a girl, it looks kind of pink.
Not much for features, good hardware, good heel-joint, quiet electronics. The finish is a plastic resin-based coating, not guitar paint. The neck is high-quality solid maple, but the body is made of the same kind of "wood" they use to make cheap pencils. The pickups deliver a good sound, but are much quieter than the pickups found in basses from other brands. The frewwork and action are actually better than many of the Fender, Ibanez and LTD's out there costing 5x as much.
The quality is exceptionally high, regardless of the price. They did skimp on the wood, finish, and pickups. But the neck, frets, hardware, and electronics are top-notch, you would be suprised, I know I was.
For the price and the quality, I gave it a 10. You wont find a better value in a bass guitar anywhere.

great features...has everything you need
seems like good quality. i had mines for about 2 years now...it gets the job done right
for only $130, you cant beat it!!! great bass for the money

    I bought this bass in metallic blue several months ago with the intention of transforming it into a 10-string bass, five pairs of strings each tuned in octaves. I had to get a new bridge and cut new string grooves in the barrels. I had a new nut professionally cut. I put a set of D'Addario strings for an 8-string bass plus a new .130 B-string and a .050 for the octave B string.

    Must be bad luck

    By mandy kenninger

    from south carolina

    Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    never really got to play it~!
    Got this bass for my son for christmas, he is just beginning to play and so I thought that this was going to be a great value for him. I got the first bass home and the neck was cracked, sent musicians friend a complaint and they took it back no questions asked. After my son recieved the new bass he took it to guitar lessons for the first time and he teacher asked why the neck was bowed? The teacher called me and asked me where I got the bass from (he wanted to know if it was from a local dealer). When I went to get my son from lessons the teacher showed me exactly what he was talking about. The neck was actually so bowed that when you held the bass up you could see it, the neck was also used from two different pieces of wood that were fused together. The teacher said it was not worth even trying to get it fixed. I am really dissapointed in the Rogue bue very happy with Musicans Friend and their customer service. I called back and explained to them what the issue was and they were happy to exchange the bass for me....again. This time I got a different brand and hopefully it will work out better!

    Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    Not a bad entry level 5 String Bass for the money. This Bass stays in tune, isn't noisey, and has a great tone and playability. On the flipside, the paint is cheap, and the neck nut needs to be upgraded to bone or graphite. What do you expect for that low of price? I will upgrade it, and keep it in my collection.

    Gotta Agree, Great Bass for the Buck

    Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

    I have played guitar for years and wanted a good solid bass to sit in with other players, at a low price. This fit the bill. The idea of having a 5 string, with more low end over a 4 string was what prompted me to order this one. It sounds great and plays well. The neck is thinner up toward the headstock than I expected. The old adage, you get what you pay for is not true with this bass, you get way more than what you would expect.
    Solid standard features.
    Good Quality for the price, nothing unexpectedly loose or poor. Pickups sound good. No dead frets or serious fret buzz. Holds its tuning well.
    Great Bass for a great price. I wouldnt have expected this much for anything just over a hundred bucks.

      Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

      This is a great bass fr the price. It has the feel of much more expensive basses at a bargain basement price. The tone and feel is great. I especially love the satin like finish on the neck. This is the third Rogue product I have purchased from Musician's friend and I am very happy with all of them so far.

      Comments about Rogue LX205B 5-String Series III Electric Bass Guitar:

      This was an inexpensive step up to a 5-string. None of the other bassists at church want to borrow it, because the B string messes with them. A couple of frets stick out too far. Pick-ups are weak. Spring on the G-string bridge rattles. Had to work on the jack, would like a Fender-style jack on my next one
