Great 5 string bass for beginner or expert I really enjoy the sound and I'll try to make the amp last as long as possible

The bass is great for a $100 guitar. The only issue is there is not a back plate for the bolts in the neck. This is a beautiful looking bass as it is sounding. Would definitely purchase again. The amp is good for a beginner but I suggest purchasing a different one

I like that it was a good value for the money but one of the fret sounds odd on the third string and that's the only issue.

Unbelievable that this bass plays and sounds as good as it does for the price! Quick neck adjustment, tuned her up and she plays wonderfully! Thanks for a great deal!!

This is such a well made instrument. I'm using it to record bass parts for a TV show I'm composing for. Thanks Glarry for making quality instruments at such an affordable price!

My only complaint is that I was not able to track my delivery. The instrument is fine! It did arrive within the 5 days promised and I am satisfied. I will order from you again.

Hello, My name is Billy Vaughn Sr from the Shining Force band. I bought this bass guitars and received it over the weekend. This item was awesome. The craftsmanship and quality for a bass guitar that is reasonably prices is just unique and very well crafted. I opened the box it cam in and when I saw the paint job its was fabulous and the quality was well worth the money. I took it to band practice and we plugged it in and it sounded great. The knobs and strings were perfect. I would highly recom ...

Pretty well made and good sounding 5 string bass for the price. I'm a new to Bass playing and decided to go with the 5 string instead of 4, and so far so good. I like that the strings are closer together.

For the price (the bass was sold in a package with practice amp and accessories), this 5 string bass can't be beat! My son's bass teacher was impressed with the quality if the workmanship, including the neck/frets, which can be rough with high action on entry level models. Not so with this model! A beginner can easily handle it. The finish is beautiful on the instrument, too. The bass will last him many years. Glarry customer service was also great to work with. When I accidentally ordered a 4 s ...

I received this bass on a Thursday and played it on Friday and Saturday night. With only a minor adjustment of the neck and bridge (to suit my playing style) I was simply amazed at the feel and sound of this instrument. It sounds and plays better than any Fender I've ever touched. I had 2 basses on stage that weekend. One was my $8500 Alembic and the other was my new Glarry bass. I must admit that the Alembic does have a more intense sound but the Glarry bass is just as comfortable to play and ...

I'm one of those "Reviewers" that only pipes up when I find something GOOD, or something BAD.... I'm pretty impressed with this bass.... I own Ibanez bases, Schecter Bases and one Fender Jazz.... I purchased THIS bass to try my hand at a 5 string figuring "OK, It;s JUST a training instrument" I paid $108 for it and figued if it didnt work out, it would give me something to smash on stage during a show.... VERY impressd with this right out of the box (Mind you, for the priece). Most importan ...

Just what I needed. Nice pickup crossover tone palette you can get between adjusting volume controls, but the best tone is both pickups at once: the hum is cancelled & the tone is deep, sweet, & smooth. Thinkin' about gettin' the 6-string sunset burst version to compliment my 5-string burlywood. Thumps & pops nicely as well

Overall the bass is pretty nice. It's put together well and plays great. The one (big) problem is the electronics are messed up. Each knob acts as a volume AND tone control which makes it really difficult to dial in a tone. I haven't looked in the cavity yet, but I figure they must all be wired together for this to be happening. I like the bass enough to keep it, but not enough to use it until I get the wiring fixed.

This thing is awesome.. I switch the strings up and took them off and and put a high c on there I had to adjust the neck a little bit because of the different strings but other than that man all good stays in tune

Nice bass, it is well made for my usage. Action is low which is ny preference and the strings that came with it are decent.

by J***r

on August 25, 2022

So 4 out of 5. My reason is because I had to adjust the neck and bridge to eliminate some ringing on a couple frets including 1sr fret F and low C. Other than that for the price, quality, sound, packaging, body and all is good. This also is good if you are wanting to try a 5 string bass without breaking the bank. Its not for everyone but yes I would buy this again. Considering the 5 string jazz down the road.

WOW! Heard this bass being played on a video and it sounded great! After conversation with the one playing at the time, found out he wasn't using any pedals or effects. Was still a bit skeptical, but purchased it anyway. Once again...WOW! The sound is EXCELLENT! Especially being passive. A few minor issues like pod noise, but that's an easy fix. Lightweight but durable. Neck is fast and smooth. Action is spot on. Will probably order another one just because!

After buying my first Glarry guitar in Sept. 2020 I decided to replace my 5 string Rogue bass that I had sold. So I bought this one from Glarry. I had it setup and new string put on it and it plays great! Amazing Quality too for the amount of money I gave for it. $128.48 I know China gets a lot of flack these days for all the shit they have put out like the C-virus but as far as the people go and the companies that are making cheap musical equipment and instruments...I can complain. This bass in ...

Recently picked up the Brown one, while it was on Closeout. I was super surprised to find it a really Nice looking Stain! The pics made it look an Ugly Brown Paint. Anyway,.. I am a Reseller, and have had excellent experience with Glarry, so far. Especially with the Basses! They do a geat job with them, electric guitars, also. None of the acoustics, or Mandolins, I have bought, have been near the decent quality tho, Unfortunately. having purchased now,.. 5 basses I would Defintely recommend t ...

I am a recording artist and purchased the Bass/Amp Combo to add bass tracks to my productions. It arrived quickly, in pristine condition. I immediately changed the strings to Rotosound RS665LB Swing Bass 66 Stainless Steel 5 String Bass Guitar Strings (35 55 70 90 120) & tuned the instrument to Drop B (B-F#-B-E-G#) ... The adjustable bridge was extremely intuitive to use in conjunction with the truss rod, and yielded great results. This instrument plays wonderfully, sounds great, and stays in tu ...

I'll start off by saying, this is a really nice bass for such a low price point. It's very comfortable to play, sounds great and stays in tune. The only reason that I can't give it 5 stars is because it was pretty much unplayable out of the box. The neck was too straight, the action at the bridge was way too low, and the 23rd fret was a bit high. These 3 things caused a ton of buzz and even a few completely dead frets, so it wasn't really a functional instrument out of the box. However, aft ...

Overall, for the price, this is a good instrument. Upon getting the bass the neck was bowed quite a bit, couldn't play it this way. But I did the typical new guitar setup on it and all is good now with playability. My only legitimate complaint is with the pups/electronics. The bridge pup doesn't put out sound, even with the volume knob maxed, until the volume on the neck pup is turned up. But even then the volume of the bridge pup is faint. Another thing is the tone knob for the neck pup wor ...

Quite impressed with the bass. Holds tune well. Neck needed some sanding because it was sticky and a bit rough. I have to tell you, I bought this because I have played a 4 string forever and wanted something cheap to see how a 5 string plays. This bass will be on stage with me soon. Highly recommend for a lower end priced bass! For a $125 bass its pretty nice. I have a couple of $1000 Fender basses that I love
