I have owned this bass for 5 years. I had to do some set up work on it when I got it; Tweaking the neck relief and intonating the strings. That might throw a beginner, but get a friend with some knowledge, or a book at the store and it is just minor repairs. A musician should learn about those things anyway. I like and have P basses. The Rogue was meant to be a practice instrument but I got spoiled by the lightness of it and after I got it set up, the sound was really good. I tried it through several amps and in a good Fender amp, it'll put out deep sounds that'll digest your dinner for you! The only thing that ever broke on it was when my kid dropped it in the parking lot and broke a tuner. I replaced just that one and haven't had any other trouble. We've been carrying it around all over Texas without a case for 5 years. Roll up the treble and adjust your amp and it gets real funky modern sounding. I found it to be a good deal and a tough little bass. My daughter takes it away from me all the time to play in the youth praise band. Now she wants the 5 string Rogue.

I am a musician and I figured as an active musician and youth mentor buying things out my own pocket to teach kids. (I teach music for free to troubled kids)I wanted to save myself a few bucks. I opened the box and noticed it was light as advertised. Great I thought! Some of my students are real small.Till I went to tune it to standers E and the peg broke off in my hand! I was not happy. Now I was out of pocket for new machine heads. Then It would buzz at any set up a child could play at. Disappointing to say the least. The pickup was not bad for the price, the knobs are plastic and feel cheap. The whole thing is just not quality. Mr Scary?s Advise is to never buy a Rouge product. I have tried Basses, and guitars from them, and ended up selling them at a bug loss at my local music store. You just get what you pay fore. Go with ESP they give you the biggest bang for your buck bar none!

Surprised After All The Negitive Reviews

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

After reading all the bad reviews on this bass I didn't want to get it, but this being my 1st bass I just wanted something cheap. You're not buying a "fancy" bass so don't expect fancy things, this is just a good beginner bass and there is absolutely nothing bad about it.

False Reviews

By Mandrew

from California

This was actually my first bass I ever owned. To be honest, it was a dream come true. It played like a bass, sounded like a bass, and felt like a bass. But, the build was nothing but junk. The tuning knobs ended up losing its threading on the gears and it feels like a big hunk of plastic on a wooden neck. It only lasted me about 3 months before it fell apart. Do yourself a big favor and save money and buy a fender jazz bass or similar. It will last you years compared to this hunk of junk. Dont rock a rogue bass.

Good for a beginner or quick back-up!

By KwUTXBTNI

from Oklahoma

If you're just starting out this bass is fine it will last you a few good months before it starts to mess up the volume knob loosens a little bit and something in the jack or input whatever it's called becomes loose also and it will cut out if you move around alot it's really lightweight,cheap and good for a beginner or someone who needs a quick back up i have been playing this bass since Nov.18 2009 and it lasted me to about last month before the jack input thing became loose but like i said before If you're just starting out this bass is fine it will last you a few good months

Ah, the memories...

By Greg Thompson

from Minneapolis, MN

This bass is a sub- instrument--it isn't going to hold water to a P-Bass, but it, coupled with a cheap Rogue amp, got me through my first two garage bands when I was in high school. The action isn't great, the pots are scratchy, and the neck feels cheap when you hold it, but you can learn to play on it, beat the snot out of it, build some wicked calluses on your fingers, and then move up to something nicer. This bass is light, it makes noises, and you can tune it. For a beginner, it's enough.

kind of good

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

When I first got this bass I was surprised at how easily I could play it. This bass put minimal stress on my fingers compared to my fathers yamaha 6-string bass. My issue with this, along with many other guitars and basses, was, the nut that held the input jack in became loose. No matter how many times me and my dad and my bandmates tried to tighten it as tight as we could, it wouldn't stay put. One day, the bass stopped working. The bolt fell off and revealed to me that the wires had been seperated from the input due to the multiple adjustment in the bolt. I'd recommend getting a bass, like squier or fender, that will have a bolt that doesn't budge. It was a nice bass for 6 months though.

Good bass for the price

By Statsnanny

from Conroe, TX

See all my reviews

As the previous reviews have stated, this bass is very light, which is one of its big positive factors. It's well-balanced and easy to play. The construction is solid and the finish is clean. As far as the electronics are concerned, the pickups are quite decent and the wiring seems pretty clean. I will probably swap out the pickups for something a little hotter but overall this bass is a great value for the money.

Piece of crap

By CorpseInAGrove442

from Venice, Florida

I just bought this bass guitar. I was sitting here tuning it for the first time. I'm tuning the E string and it's only registering a high A, so I keep tuning it and the damn heads locked up. The tuning heads are plastic!!! PLASTIC!!! They cracked!!! DO NOT BUY THIS!! Buy better spend the extra. Just do it.

Nice Little Rig

By corpsfreak1018

from San Antonio, TX

See all my reviews

OK so I just recently bought this bass and I love it. This thing was great right out of the box and I have had no problems with it. I also own a Rogue 6 and 5 string and I use the 6 string as my main rig but I tell you what I have decided to use this little 4 stringer as my main slap and pop bass. The sound and flexibility you get out of this is amazing. For people that buy gear based on brand name please forget it and give Rogue a chance they make amazing basses and really affordable prices. Well like I said amazing sound.tone,playability, and its very light. Remember Rogue is just a name and it should be tone and quality that is determining your choice in gear.

Great Starter Axe

By TaciturnBadger

from Virginia Beach, VA

See all my reviews

This is an excellent choice for a starter axe. The bass is extremely light, but that has a catch to it because the neck overbalances the body and tugs at your shoulder. The pickup has decent tone for the price, but has a tendency to pick up a lot of fret noise on anything above zero on the Tone knob. The knobs themselves are plastic, and while that's not in and of itself bad, can be over-tightened easily. All in all, for a beginner axe, or if you just need a junker to thrash on and don't want to damage your main axe. I use it for travel all the time when I don't want to risk my nice bass getting broken.

Best Bass for the money!

By Jason Stevens

from Savannah, GA

I've owned basses for 4 times the price and they don't compare to this one. If you're worried about something happening, then I suggest you buy the coverage plan. It only cost me $9.99 for the 2 year coverage plan. Thank you Musician's Friend, I love your company, and I love this bass!

Definitly a Beginners Instrument...

By Dr. Robert Jameson

from Sioux Falls, SD

See all my reviews

A student of mine owned this bass and brought it to a lesson, and I could not believe the poor quality and sound of this instrument. The fretboard felt like sand paper and every fret buzzed horribly. I tried to adjust it... but it was no use. The pickups had a constant buzz to them even in my ampeg amp. If you are just starting bass I would suggest a squire bass, they are not much more and they are a much better instrument for the money.

Good for beginners

By Tennesseeripper

from in a van down by the river

See all my reviews

I have a rogue just like this one. I'm pretty sure they're the same. Anyway, this bass is a great bass for beginners. A little buzzing here and there. But if you pluck it right it won't. The strings it came with were pretty good. When I started I tried to tune it and my E string broke. I finally bought some new ones. I was on a budget so I was at kroger and bought some. I wasn't expecting much. I was suprised when I found out that they were pretty good. Those who are reading Turns out Kroger doesn't suck after all to buy strings. WHO KNEW? Overall this is a great bass guitar.

Great Little Bass

By Dalimoman

from Napa, CA

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

Whether or not this bass is for you depends on what you want. If you want to impress your friends with sophisticated electronics, show quality finishes or the name on the headstock this ain't for you. BUT...if you want an inexpensive bass that looks great, plays great and sounds great this is IT! I've owned many top brand basses over the years and this is as good as most of them, and better than many. Mine did need some adjustment of the neck and action before it was really ready to play but once setup, this thing plays very well. Tone is limited by the single pickup but it still rocks. Bought it as a gift for my daughter (gonna give it to her for Christmas) but I've been playing and recording with it and I am very impressed. I highly recommend this bass.

Very nice for the price

By guywiththebass

from Dunnellon, FL

I've owned this bass for about a year, and for the price, it is certainly not a disappointment. Its nice and light, and is good for people who are learning to play. It sounds and plays very well for a cheap bass, and the only problem I had was that mine came shipped with the action poorly set up, but then again most guitars and basses do come like that. The reason I gave it a 3.5 on features is because it only has a volume and tone knob, and its only split coil pickups, but what can you expect for the price?

Wow, this thing is light

By marshall440

from kalamazoo, Michigan

My bass had a short in the wiring, so the guy who was fixing it let me borrow his Rogue, and I have to say, this is quite a bass. It sounds pretty good, and its really light, compared to other basses, you can almost forget you're wearing this one. And thats really nice.
