Harsh EQ, Bad Fretwork

    Comments about Mitchell MB200 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

    I played one of these at GC yesterday through an Acoustic BN3112 (nice amp!). The finish looked beautiful and the neck had a very nice shape. The bass was set-up with typical factory action (medium-high) and the bass still fretted-out at the 12th fret...not good. The bridge was functional, but a bit chintzy. The tuners are Gotoh GB7 clones, but really didn't perform well at all. The electronics were where I was really at a loss. The blend know was essentially a switch in that there was no "blending" at all; it gives you either the neck pup or the bridge pup.

    I've played professionally, but am now just a hobbyist. We're at an unusual point in history where you can grab a very decent bass for two Benjamins (Peavey Milestone???). While the bass looked fantastic and had a nice neck profile, I couldn't get a single usable tone out of it. If you're willing to just buy the bass as a neck and body, replace the pups and have the frets seriously dressed, then go for it. I think there much better bargains out there, though.

      Comments about Mitchell MB200 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

      In these tough economic times people should be able to expect good quality for their money, regardless of the product. This line of Mitchell basses, at least for me, delivers quality craftsmanship on a level you'd expect from the higher end companies. Everything about these instruments top notch, from top to bottom. More than i expected, for sure! I liked the first one so much i got a second one a week later. You can't go wrong with Mitchell, in my honest opinion.

        I got my first Mitchell and liked it so much i got a second one a week later. It may be considered cheap price-wise but you get top-notch quality with Mitchell. These guys know how to give more bang for your buck. The only reason it got 4 out of 5 was that i had to send the second one back due to a poor fret job. Other than that, it's all good!

          The buzzing was corrected by dropping it off at my local music shop. Cost me an additional .... Worth it in the long run.

          Comments about Mitchell MB200 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

          I do not understand how a bass of this quality can possibly be purchased at the sale price I paid. The finish is flawless. I love the abalone oval inlays, quality of finish, balance, and overall stunning looks, to go along with unique cool looking pole piece layout of the pickups. I have yet to plug in and comment on controls or electrified sound, but no need. It exceeded all of of my expectations. after a fret dressing, this bass will be perfect. I highly recommend purchasing this bass for almost anyone, especially for the beginner wanting to get into playing cheaply. Can't be beat

            I was looking for a cheaper affordable bass guitar that had the right "feel" for me. I usually like to have a "hands on" experience with an instrument I plan to keep, so I went to Guitar Center & this bass caught my eye with it's good looks. After a short try-out, I was hooked. It is perfect for me in every way. The looks are right, the sound is right & the feel is right. What more could a picker ask for?
