I had to buy it. Hey, it stays in tune, and though it took some extraordinary setup, its performance has been perfect. First, I had to drill out the holes for the E-string and the A -string in order to accomodate a set of Fender tapewounds. The intonation was a hassle to get right, but I guess that was my own incompetence. I removed the frets from the 13th down, then filled in the grooves with wood filler and sanded it smooth. To tell the truth, the only way I'd improve this bass is installing better pickups. The thing is so light that I'm surprised that it has the structural integrity to stay in tune, but so far it has. If you are a guitarist who just needs a bass to compose on, this is perfect. We haven't played live since I acquired it, but lightweight means mobility. I once did several songs live on this 6-string version of this (Yes, I did buy the $69 Rogue guitar.), which feels like not having any weight at all around your neck. The only issue that I had with the guitar was it didn't stay in tune well until I transformed the stupid whammy-bar bridge into a hardtail using a stack of pennies.I tell you, if nothing else, you should buy one of these and remove all of the frets. Three bucks worth of plastic wood and some sanding and you'll have a fretless to goof around on, and to see if you really can learn to play one. I was shocked at how much easier it was than I had expected, and I'm just a rhythm guitarist who hasn't had a lot of experience on bass.

this was the first bass I ever played. I first bought it because I did not know any difference between basses, besides how they looked. My how I was wrong. But, for the first 6 or so months, the bass suited me perfectly- I had no need for a bass that sounded wonderful, or one that was very high quality. but, after I progressed in my music I learned that there are much better basses out there, and grew to not like my bass so much. But, aside from my personal feelings I shall tell how I feel about this bass. This bass is excellent for a beginning bassist. It is made fairly well, and if treated properly will last awhile, with out breaking. The overall quality is actually very good for such a low price. It is 34 inches, has a bolt on neck, and a small body. This bass has a decent tone, although it isn't the best, it isn't horrible. This Bass doesn't have a ton of features- but that is because it has a low price. So, I would reccomend this bass to someone who is just beginning to learn to play bass. But other than that, I wouldn't reccomend getting it.

I just recently bought this bass second hand from a friends father, and I immediately fell in love with it. Sure, everyone loves their first bass, but I doubt I'll ever get one that I like more, sure there's a little fret buzz, but it really hasn't interfered with my playing so overall it's a good bass.
Man oh man, this was my first bass I recieved when I was in high school (9th grade). When I pulled this baby out of the box I was surprised how light it was. and despite the price it had suprisingly good sound. It served me well for two and a half years. I am now in college and play for my schools jazz band and since then I have upgraded to a american made 5 string peavey. However this bass did well and served it's purpose as a learing tool. I would definetely recommend this bass to beginners
This bass is good to start out on, I did and have since upgraded. It is a crappy bass, no doubt about it, but good for a beginner who doesnt really know where they are going to go with with there playing yet.
This was my first bass that I have bought, and it was good enough to learn on. Two months later, a gear in one of the tuners broke while I was restringing it, making it rather unusable. It's good for learning on if you can make it last a while.
This is the best bass ever. I own this bass and let me tell you don't let the price fool you. You have to play it is awesome. It has so much power that you can hear it when i play outside for about a mile away.
I bought this bass for recording and for the value, it's awesome! I do jazz with super low tunings and it holds up great. Stays in tune and sounds great recorded! For the incredible value it's worth it!
Only tried it at a store but I played it for about 15 mins or so...its literally just average: sounds fine but nothing great to the ear, necks stable but isn't butter smooth or fast response, stayed in tune perfectly fine while I slapped tommy the cat on it, seems like an all around stable bass. If you get this, expect it to last you for about 2 years at most and thats only if it doesn't collapse [like I said, only tried it out] so it seems like a fair deal for the price.
Overall good guitar for the price.. Pros... Easy to play , durable , decent sound
Cons... Crappy tone , volume and tuning knobs upgrade them the tone and volume knobs come loose and the tuning knobs rattle and buzz. Watch for the neck to warp you will get some buzz on the higher frets.
Light Body , Decent sound , Simple to learn to use , nothing too complicated have owned this model of bass since i was 13 and i am now 25 never owned another one.
built solid enough i have droped this guitar ... Even smacked someone in the head with it and it didnt crack or even get knocked out of tune .
awesome guitar for the price of it .
this is a real good guitar to learn on. i have since upgraded to a Dean V metalman, but i've had this guitar since i started in sixth grade. it's almost 4 years old now, and the only thing that i needed soldered was the input, and other than that, it's still a good guitar. i'd suggest this Rogue SX100B for anyone as their first bass.
I bought this bass just over a year ago. It has a decent tone, especially with the 60 watt behringer amp I use, but after a couple of months the sound got a little rigid and it began to fall apart. I had screws falling out all over the place and just recently the E-string Tuning peg tore up. I would definitely recommend saving your money to buy something alot better.
