one word,IMPRESSIVE....unwrapped a new Glarry 5 string bass. Nice neck ,no burs on the fret edges,smooth & rolled over nicely .Tuned it up and intonation was set really nice.Plugged it in,& wow ,not bad .....a bit of microphonics, but,all in all HOW THE HELL CAN THEY TURN OUT A PRODUCT THIS IMPRESSIVE FOR THE MONEY THEY CHARGE??? An incredible VALUE for the money.....I have LAKLANDS,CARVINS,GODINS,all 5 string basses....I'm quite impressed with this GLARRY,...it's caught my fancy for the moment ...

This is my second Glarry bass, with the 4 string version in natural finish being my first. Just as the first did, this bass arrived safely, and even still a little in tune. It was set up well with a comfortably low action and no sharp frets. The pickups sound crystal clear even on the low B string. The finish is gorgeous and absolutely worth twice the asking price alone. All in all, both basses are a steal at this price point, and I highly recommend them. Glarry have proven themselves to me as a ...

I'm a veteran bassist with countless performances and recordings to my credit. I've owned fender, gibson, ibanez, Warrick, etc, but my 3 Glarrys are amazing. So much bass for so little money. This recent 5 string jazz bass will be going into the recording studio with me in February. Once I set them up my way, they get "gigged" immediately. I look forward to trying whatever Glarry has to offer, peace.

I love My Glarry 5 string Bass, My luthier was impressed with the bass also, especially after i told him the total price plus shipping in a few days. I must admit, I did change out the pickups to Hum-cancelling pickups i ordered from Ali-express. That and a setup ,was all i did to the bass after it was purchased. The only negative thing is the gig bag for the 5 string, seems to be the same one for the 4 string, and it barely zips all they way up. Other than that comment, I still love the bass b ...

The bass I recieved and the overall ordering experience are very good. My biggest issue is that I mistakenly ordered the wrong 5-string bass (Glarry GJazz Electric 5 String) andrequested a return/replacement for the one I desired (Glarry GIB Electric 5 String Bass Guitar Full Size SS Pick-up). Both basses are the same price. Glarry agreed to have me ship it back but minus the 20% personal reasons fee. It was my screw-up, but I think given that I wanted to still purchase the other bass they cou ...

The bass far exceeded my expectations!!! Great looks and construction for a $129 bass. I've upgraded my pickups to EMG and it sounds massive. My only complaints are the bridge jacks up my tuning every time I make adjustments, and my G string tuner came in slightly bent. No big deal being that this is a project bass so I'll be changing both of these. Overall, I'm loving it though. Thank you Glarry!

Again, I love this also. But my fret board has this chipped off part that makes me really sad about it. Just want to know how I can get this fixed and feel better about my first purchase with glarry

This seems like a decent 5-string bass. Be prepared to buy a new gig bag or case for it, though, as the cheap provided gig bag will not fit the instrument. The 5th tuning machine makes the headstock too big.

Service Team:

We appreciate your feedback and I will let the technical department follow up. The zipper side of the bag is the back. Please install it in reverse.If you have any questions, please contact our customer service email [email protected]

Not happy at all, I know it's only 130 dollars but I did expect a little better quality control, I don't think I'll buy again.

This review is based on the sum of its issues compared to the price. Things I found wrong with it: Fret ends are slightly sharp, nut is sharp and cheap, finish on body was not quite buffed out properly, cheapest bridge I've seen on any bass, volume and tone knobs don't work properly together (wiring issue or cheap pots), strings don't align with pickups very well, pickup screws installed and different angles, NECK DIVE, extremely light body (causing neck dive), not set up properly, some buzzing ...

Thank you for your review, we do have a lot of room for improvement.I will let the technical staff follow up with your feedback.

I had high hopes after reading the other reviews. After a lot of work, I have a playable instrument. First the bad points...The back of the neck has a big dip in the nut-1st fret area where it was over sanded that looks and feels awful. The bridge (and nut) are too narrow for the fingerboard. The pickups are non-standard width so aftermarket upgrades will not fit. The bass is incredibly neck heavy whether with a strap or sitting. There were many rough spots on the back of the neck. The composite ...

Service Team:

Thank you for your feedback. I will report that the relevant personnel have improved the quality control.

Best string to body tone I've ever heard. Bright, bottomy, clearly enunciated. Wow! what are those strings made of? A beautiful, well thought out bass. Thank you for your commitment to the music Uncle GLarry. I am ordering a Burning Fire bass and full size case right now. I am The Celebrity Bassist Jason Laughner and I definitely approve this message.

I own 10 other basses and , I was looking for a 5-string bass that was low-cost, playable, and had passive circuitry. This Glarry 5-string fit the bill perfectly! I bought this bass (and a 4-string fretless, burlywood P-bass style bass) for the exclusive purpose of leaving them at church to be played for the three services we have every Sunday. I'm always asking the sound crew for fresh 9 volt batteries for my basses (and Chourus) and I thought it would be nice to stop doing that (They don't mi ...

Bass is very nice and a great value. I really like the neck which is slightly larger than a Jazz bass and is very stable. The finish is very good also. I wish it came in more colors because I will be buying more...

All guitar companies started somewhere ,Fender,Gibson etc ,in their beginning people said they wouldn't last,their just a dad,I'm an honest believer were witnessing the same thing with GLARRY, I got my 5 string a few months back and LOVE IT, it's my cheapest bass in my collection but the most played,I've upgraded a few things(Glarry please switch to himass bridges please!) lengthened the scale to 36inches to make it more roomy and boomy,added some Wilkinson pickups to it,I gave not a single comp ...

I am a beginner. I thought I would finally learn an instrument. The price was right so decided to leap. The bass is great looking and felt nice. The sound as far as my new ears can tell is great. A friend of mine saw the bass decided to get a 5 string for his studio.

Shipping came fast only 6days...Overall Great Bass the tone was killing especially for the price but it is a lot of hum from the volume knobs and hopefully in the future we can see maybe different neck options.
