Comments about Cremona SB-2 Premier Student Series Bass Outfit:

As I started setting up the bass for the 1st time, it developed a nasty-looking crack in the heel of the neck. I think it was mostly just the lacquer which had cracked. It wasn't affecting the structural integrity at all but looked like the neck was about to fall off. After contacting MF, they gave a decent discount (offered to provide a replacement but freight cost made that not an option). I glued and cramped the crack which wasn't deep. It's been fine for the last 9 months. The action was very high. I pulled the bridge apart, removed the thumbwheels from their spindles, put the spindles sans thumbwheels back in their holes, put the bridge back together and the action , while still a little high is much better. I filed out the nut grooves a bit to lower string height at that end too. There was a horrible rattle when playing open A. I pulled the end pin assembly apart and put it back making sure everything was tight. This completely fixed the rattle. The fingerboard may be ebony, but not black. It has been stained black and there is a very noticeable mark on the fingerboard where the stain got smudged. I had to shake construction debris out the f holes.
I'll get better strings for it, but the strings on it are o.k. and a lot better than on a similar low end bass I played. Despite all of the above, I'm really enjoying this bass and having heaps of fun playing it in a bluegrass band. The tone is fine for what I do.
