It's a sweet idea.  Neck through bass, sort of.  This is the set up that you'd like to have where the pick ups, bridge, and headstock are on the same piece of wood.  I'm not sure why they stopped short of having the wood extend to full length of the body, but it's a experiment.  Good tone, an so far I've not seen nor heard any glitches in the design.  It has a brass nut and grover tuners.  It's a nice instrument and a great value.  I'm not a shill, but this is a sweet instrument.  I'm not a fan of the bridge.  Actually, the bridge isn't my complaint, it's the saddles.  While adjusting the string height, the saddles get stripped and then the screws come out.  I'd rather the screws get striped than the saddles.  For the price, I don't think that you'll be dissapointed.

what do I think about when i play?  Left finger, right finger, left finger, thumb...Doh!

hello

I bought an MB-40.
This is my first bass, I played an other bass but that was a €3200 handmade bass so not really comparable.
You can ask me questions and I will answer you as precise as possible.
