Great job by Glarry getting a starter/student bass at such a great price point. Was reasonably playable right out of the box with a very fast ship There were a few minor(to me) issues that might not be acceptable to an intermediate or pro player, but were easily addressed, as follows 1. Cuts with the grain were fine but cuts against the grain were chattered and chipped, sanding fixed. The neck was super rough, sanding also fixed 2. The neck wasn't parallel enough to have the action low. When ...

Overall buying this bass was a great experience. The price is very reasonable and it arrived exactly one week after I ordered it. When it arrived the box was damaged near the middle of the neck. I was worried the bass would also be damaged. Luckily it was not, I credit the styrofoam that the bass was packaged in. I encourage Glarry to ship all their instruments this way. Encasing the instruments in styrofoam this way is a great way to ensure the delivery of an undamaged item. The bass looks gre ...

The GIB 5 string arrived on time, but the box was badly damaged. I thought for sure the Bass would damaged, but to my surprise it is not. The Bass plays pretty good for the price paid. I plan to change the pickups because they are pretty weak, especially on the Low B string. I've replaced the pickups on my Glarry Jazz Bass 4 string for the same reason. I will also put flatwound strings on the Bass. The tuning keys seem to be holding up for now, but I might put Gotoh tuners on in the future. I pu ...

I bought this to give to one of my brothers as a Christmas gift. I don't know much about electric instruments, but it looked very nice when I first unpacked it to make sure it arrived undamaged. The finish was great and the wood's grain looked very nice. He said he tuned it and did a little work on it, and seems to enjoy it.

This is cheap bass...and that is a great thing. If you are looking for a high end, "professional" instrument, this isn't it. But it doesn't need to be. It is exactly what it tries to be. I very very inexpensive, very capable 5 string bass. I am impressed. For the price point, it cannot be beat. Period. It is light weight. Very Playable. Action, etc needs to tweaked and adjusted, but very doable. I recommend you take a good hard look around, then come back and lat down the measly 129 bucks and ma ...

My Bass arrived this evening in fine shape, as did accessories, the shipping box not so much, lol. I've yet to tune it or plug her in as of yet but she looks just fine, that's quite the neck @ I'm 6' 4" tall and have large hands and as stated that's quite the neck. Good Job Ya'll Not a single scratch on the bass.

Plays very well. Needed the same amount of adjustment an expensive guitar would. Sounds and plays good so far, will see in a little while how it holds up.

took a lot longer to arrive than expected, and the neck and strings were a little uncomfortable at first, (neck is very thick. it was hard to move my thumb up and down the neck.) but I'm assuming that's just what every first time 5 string player goes through because it's getting better as I adapt. my main problem however is the strings. the action is a too high so playing on the thinner strings becomes a hassle and induces very mild wrist injuries.. but it's still an injury nonetheless so that's ...

Good bass. I had to lower the action and do some neck adjustments and had to re-shim the neck joint. Also, the neck had rough areas and the fretboard felt rough and grimy. So I lightly sanded them and smoothed them up and then oiled the neck and fretboard to give it some moisture. The frets had little to no spouting. It's sounds good enough to start with but will eventually upgrade the pickups to some EMGs. Definitely going to slap some Ernie Ball strings on it. And will also upgrade the hardw ...

Other than the delivery guy being a dumbass and leaving it in the yard (not Glarry's fault) everything shipped fine and arrived about as expected. For the price i did expect some finishing roughness and there were a few small areas that needed some TLC with fine sandpaper (i like a satin neck), but honestly for 119 bucks and me planning to strip and refinish everything, really not bad. electronics sounds fine, neck was playable out of the box, tuners are fine. Strings were crap, but i play stupi ...

This was a great example of the GIB 5 string Bass. All I did was tune up, and I was off to the races recording into my Audiobox USB 96. The accessories are great, but don't count on any impact protection from the gig bag. I'm new to bass, but intermediately experienced in guitar in a studio setting, and I'd highly recommend this for the price.

First thing I noticed was the strings were not centered between the pickup poles. The supplied bridge was just a bit to narrow for the string spacing and those pickups. I had a 17 mm bridge and it solved that part of the problem, the other was the Pickups were set too deep to be really responsive on highs, just a bit of plastic-foam under each allowed me to bring them up and achieve better balance between the 2 pickups. I had some issues with strings staying in tune put some New GHS 130--45 Med ...

Thumpers dream, nice feel, great pickup control and awesome sound. I have average size hands and this neck is easy to navigate as a 5 stringer.

After watching several reviews on Glarry products, I decided to take a chance on a 5 string bass. I am glad I did. Fit and finish are much better than expected. There were some small bits of glue exposed around the pickups but were easily cleaned up and only a minor cosmetic issue. It has kept tune better than expected and intonation was excellent right out of the box. One thing that might bother some people is the linearity of the pots leaves some to be desired but it isn't a deal breaker by an ...

It's fine for its price. For beginners and for someone who is in tight budget, this is probably okay with you. Intonation and action are okay too.

This is a nice 5 String Bass. The neck is straight. The action is good. The frets are well finished. The strings and tuning machines are fine. All it needed was a little polishing of the back of the neck then it was ready to go. It is an excellent value.
