The bass has a beautiful unblemished finish, perfect!It came with roundwound strings that were real cheap and had dark sports on them like they were played for years, I quickly replaced them with D'addario med light longscale roundwound strings, they play beautifully on the bass. I did notice that most strings don't fit great the problem is the ball on most sets on the E string have a hard time setting right in the tailpiece but with a little wiggling and not much force it will set in the proper position, I tried GHS boomers and the E string would not fit in the saddle, D'addario seems to be the best fit so far.I know most will say that flatwounds are the proper string for the bass but I found that they are too dead and have no sustain for my style of playing.I've used the bass at band rehearsal last week and was quite impressed with the sound, bandmates were surprised at the quality for the price.The intonation is very easy to set, the solo/rhythmn bass/treble switches give endless combinations of different sounds. It has the hotest output I have ever experienced with passive pickups. I would have to agree with other reviewers that this bass is not meant for popping and slapping and hard rock pounding, it works best with finger picking and used with a pick. If your a lefty out there you probably know that there is not much selection for basses, purchase this bass it's worth the money.
My main instrument is keyboards and I also play a little guitar but recently decided to get a bass. I was not disappointed. This is one sweet little guitar. For aesthetic reasons alone it is worth purchasing if for no other reason than to just hang it on the wall. The guitar and finish are beautiful. This guitar plays like guitars costing twice as much and is a pure delight to play. It's almost like it screams "play me" every time I look at it.The feel of the guitar is very comfortable and the action is fast. Any problem I am having with buzzing strings is me and not the guitar. Admittedly it's not the Hofner quality or even the Hofner sound but it's 80% of both of them and 10% of the price. I think that's a pretty good deal. Definitely worthy of the hardshell case because the gig bag is not quite sufficient for the protection it deserves. A new set of strings wouldn't hurt. I put on some Fender Flatwounds and it really helped the sound. The bottom line is that this is a really nice bass at a super price, if you're tempted go ahead and do it. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Purchased this Bass for my Left-handed 16 year old son. He?s been playing the Bass since he was 9. Plays upright bass right-handed. We are so happy with his Rogue LX200BL bass purchased 5 years ago, that we figured it a good bet to try out this Rogue. NOT disappointed.The craftsmanship is awesome. Don?t know if they were installed up-side-down, but the pickup switches are on when down and off when up. I can always open up and flip around if needed. The neck is almost as nice as the one on my Strat. It has an adjustable trussbar which is accessed from the neck head. The adjustable bridge is an additional plus. The sound is loud and pure. Sounds great through my vintage Audiovox twin reverb 100W guitar amp. The detail in the wood is similar to that found on expensive violins. I?m now looking for a way to display the bass when not in use (hang on wall). What a base, you will not be unhappy with this purchase.
Wow. When this bass first came, its bridge was way too low, but I used the little spinner things on the sides to raise it. A great bass worth the money you pay for it. 9.5/10
i got this bass because i love the beatles and i love paul mccartney and i was pretty pleased with this bass for the price. the only little problem was the vibration of the strings, but other than that it has pretty decent tone and sound. really fun!
I know I was. I bought this from MF for $179 last summer as a second to my Fender Jazz bass, but the Fender has sat in the corner for most of the last sixth months. Why? First this thing is lightweight and easy to move around on, especially if you come from a guitar background, like myself. Secondly, even though the parts are probably considered "budget" it puts out a tone that I really like. I can play just about any type of music and it never fails to reward me with a satisfyingly deep, dark tone. Finally, I figure for the price I can keep a couple on hand and it'll still cost me less than most any other single bass. Being a lefty I couldn't help but want to try a violin bass and now I'm really glad I did. Don't knock it until you've tried one yourself!
I am mainly a guitarist but I also play bass on occasion so when I began to look for a bass I did not want to break the bank with my purchase. I almost avioded buying this bass because I have never been real high on Rogue but after buying it and playing it for a few months I'm so glad I made the purchase. This is a great bass for the money. I did make a few minor tweeks after I bought it but overall it it great. The craftsmanship on it is really impressive you would not think it is a Rogue and first glance. It has a real smooth sound. I would recommend this guy to anyone who is looking for a bass who doesn't really have the money to spring for a Hofner or Fender.
I am impressed by the overall performance and quality of this bass. Was not expecting much at this price point but was pleasantly suprised by it upon arrival. The finish on it is amazing for the price. Highly recommended, and for a leftie, make you feel like a certain Beatle!
