The Rogue SX100B 4-string electric bass guitar is a great-playing little axe featuring a smaller, lighter body that shoulders everywhere will appreciate. It has a bolt-on, 34"-scale maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and dot inlays. Thick, durable, high-gloss finish on body, neck, and headstock. Chrome hardware. With split-coil pickup and tone and volume controls. A fine beginner instrument with less heft and great playability!

I can't believe its been over 10 years since I started playing. This was my first bass and still my main stick when thumping around the house. It is insanely light with a zippy neck (though I did sand mine to a satin finish, not important for beginners). The tone is bright and punchy rolled full, low and muddy rolled off. However the range is not as dynamic as the travel on the knob would imply, they really could have used a toggle switch. I did have a strap anchor come loose once, but the super glue has held it at least 5 years now. If you're looking for your first bass, a backup, or something to just bang around on, this bass as served as all three for me at one point or another. And it's still serving well.

I bought this Rogue SX100B Series II Electric Bass Guitar Regular Candy Apple Red for my son for Christmas and was reminded that although sometimes you get more than you pay for, sometimes you get less... this time it's LESS. For starters the construction is cheap, lightweight and fragile, and I doubt that the machine heads will hold up long as they are binding right out of the box. Now on to playability: the main problem here is the action. Even with the saddle bottomed out it's still way too high. To fix this problem I'll have to shim the neck to bring it up (not a good thing to have to do). Intonation is going to be a beast also but with several hours and some tricks picked up along the years hopefully I can get it close. The electronics are also shotty but I'm not going to replace them because the body's not worth dumping the money in, he'll just have to deal with it. Overall this bass is not worth the low price that it's being sold for. Maybe they have a better model but I doubt it. If you want a beginner bass I'd suggest looking at something besides this one (I'd recommend the Peavey Millennium bass for a starter if you can scrape up the extra cash).
binding machine heads, cheezy electronics, and terrible action and intonation!
lightweight, cheap and fragile... no bass should be fragile
The price is cheap but this model's just not worth the price.

    Works great. Good beginner model. However one of the tuning keys started rattling pretty quickly after use. paint chipped off in one place really quickly too and I'm not sure how. Functionally its great though.

      Comments about Rogue SX100B Series II Electric Bass Guitar:

      This bass has been sitting around for close to 10 years. Maybe even longer? I originally bought it from Musicians Friend for my Son but he lost interest in wanting to learn an instrument. Long story short I needed to record a bass part but I broke a string on my good bass and didn't have a new set of strings in the studio. There in the corner sat the Rogue just as it always has with the original strings still on it. I couldn't believe how well it played and I was surprised at how good it sounds. Especially considering the age of the strings. The pickups are pretty quiet too which really surprised me. Color me impressed. Now it's not a Fender by any stretch but for the price you can't go wrong with this bass. Whether you're just beginning to play or are an experienced player and need a spare as a back up, the Rogue is a good choice. The track I recorded came out great.

            I've been playing guitar for over 40 years and never owned a bass. Bought this because the price was right and it looked good. I have enjoyed playing this bass for several years now. Not gonna blow the socks off of anything out there but it is definitely worth the chump change it cost to buy and has reasonably good action. Neck is a bit wide but I've gotten used to that. I can't complain - it is what it is and well worth taking a look at.
