All the Rogue LX400 Pro bass needs to live up to the hype Musician's Friend has put on it is a little quality control. The problems I have had thus far should have been caught before it ever left a factory or warehouse. I had to immediately replace the nut because the one on the bass was grooved all the way to the fretboard. NO amount of setup was going to correct that. It should have never left the factory/warehouse in that condition. The strings weren't very good, but I knew that from the reviews already written. I paid $** to replace the nut and new strings were $** (I had ordered strings with the bass). This was cheaper than sending the thing back for repair and having to wait for it to return. Now for the up-side. This bass has a sleek style to it and looks really good. The paint is even and polished. The active electronics seem to work fine and I make sure I unplug my bass to lengthen the life of the battery. The sound is awesome with a nice deep rumble and crisp highs.The neck is thin enough to allow my hand to easily navigate the freboard. The bass itself is lightweight and easy to maneuver. Overall I am happy with the Rogue LX400 Pro and think it will fit my needs for a while. I do hope Musician's Friend will look at the quality control aspect of their operation. It will result in a much higher score on their products and much more satisfied customers.

The Rogue LX400 Pro is a very nice looking Bass,Has a great tone, good electronics but has the worst setup I have ever seen on any guitar.it is aparent that the manufacturer spent absolutley no effort doing any nut or fret work on these guitars which I suppose that contributes to the low price. I have seen build it yourself kit guitars with better setups, seriously!the nut slot depth is not deep enough and does not follow the contour of the fretboard and the frets are high and low all the way down the board.However once I replaced the Graphite nut with a bone nut and leveled the frets it turned out to be a very nice playing bass,with the labror I have in this bass I would not take less than $350.00 and is probably one of my favorite bass guitars now. If you buy one of these Bass guitars you will want to go ahead and buy some nut files and fret files.Great bass for learning how to do setup work which in the end should produce a fine playing instrument.

This is one amazing bass guitar. This is my 4th bass guitar and of all of mine it is my second favorite to my gibson thunderbird active bass. this one beats out my fender jazz bass. the quality of it is amazing for the price. it has an amazing feel to it. I would advise any bassist to get this, beginner, medium, or advanced. I have never seen this good of a deal.
I bought this bass via Musiciansfriend, and it arrived with a blem on the back. My first impressions where:1: The pickups are too powerfull when the neck & strings adjusted correctly, causing distortion. So I moved the pickups further away from the strings.2: The pickup coils started to rust (oxidate) after a few weeks3: The batterydoor on the back started to open by itself, and once it did that and caught my belt, and it broke in 4 weeks after bought.4: The Bass arrived with blem. The back of the paint was scratched. I was too late to bring it back (out of warranty) since I came to the US to pick up this bass after 3 months.But the sound and finish is awesome! This bass has a 'black box' inside to shape the sound, and get done with unwanted frquencies.Plays very good as well, though the strings are too wobbing (too loose)
great bass for the price, beautiful tone, very bright and punchy, can be mellowed out for softer stuff easily, I love it
I bought this bass for my self for x-miss. and I love it. I am dying with this bass. Excellent slap and funk tone, and with smooth jazz tone. even with the eq on ur amp on 0, its a tone to die for. when i record, i use every style of playing u can think of, slaping on all of the strings, picking, fingering, plucking, finger taping, flowing lines, i mean every thang. this bass fills every thang i need expt for one, a tone nob. but i took out the blend and put a three way switch, put a tone knob. its awesome!!!
I got this thinking it wouldn't impress me too much. But it blew me away. I love everything about it. The sound, the feel, all of it. It went way beyond anything I could have expected. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to play a great bass but doesn't have a lot of cash.
Unless you happen to get a bad one from the factory, you cannot go wrong with this bass. The hardware and string-through body alone is worth it.
I got this bass in the black and it looks incredible. Right out of the box it played pretty good but I knew it needed some set up. I adjusted the truss rod and string saddles and it played great. I also replaced the strings with DR strings because the strings that come with it are so terrible, they are not even worth keeping as spares. Has cut out tuners so only takes me 10 minutes to string it. Great for a first bass, nice sound and fairly light.
The overall sound and playability of this bass is great, but it burns through batteriess like crazy!
This is the first bass i've bought and it is a really good bass. i heard a comment about the frets being different hights but on mine they are all perfect it. it has a 4 tone controlls which of a great veriety of tone you can choose. It is better then even some basses i've played that are even more expensive. For a more expirienced bassist i recomend an esp ltd standard d series, i played one a few times and it's really good but for a more beginner bassist this is a really good bass.
What can I say. This bass is absolutely incredible. I've played Fenders, Warwicks and everything in between, so I know what I'm saying here. I love the quilted maple top, the sturdy tuners and bridge, the comfortable neck, PERFECT action, great active pickups, and the incredible sustain. I would've paid at least $400 for this beast. Thanks to MF for making this bass so affordable. Of course, nothing is perfect though, as I have one complaint. I unscrewed the back plate covering the electronics to have a look around, and when I screw it back on, it won't let me do it very tight so it vibrates when I play, but it's really no big deal. Do yourself a HUGE favor and go buy this bass!!!
