Great travel bass for an adult. This baby sounds better than one of my full size guitars that cost three times more. Thinking about buying another one.

When I saw the specs on this bass, I had to buy it, I am glad I did. It has great tone, especially for such a small scale. Once I did a setup on it (file the nut, adjust the bridge, adjust the truss rod, and dressed the fret ends), It plays like butter. There was a little too much hum from the pickups, but once I shielded the cavity on the back, it's dead silent. The Mahogany body, Maple neck, and Rosewood fretboard make for a great bass. If you know how to do a proper setup, this is a great buy ...

My 67 year old fingers can no longer handle a full size bass, this guitar is a pleasure to play. Thanks Glarry

Much better quality than I expected. I did have to do major adjustments for the intonation and had to file the nut slot for the E string, it was much too high. If you know how to make these adjustments, you will have a reasonably playable instrument.

What a fine little instrument. A few years back, I bought a Fender Squire mini-strat on Amazon and got it decked out with all the things I like. It leans against my night stand and I play it before going to sleep, when I wake up in the morning (if I have time), and if I wake up in the middle of the night with insomnia. I play that little sucker more than I play my Ibanez Jem these days. Now my little Strat has a companion, and I can choose whether I want to practice guitar or bass. I love ...

This little bass sounds HUGE. With a decent amp I get great throaty tones that growl when I need them to. there's plenty of bite and punch available when you need it. The build quality is good. The finish looks like it's a stain with a simple waxing done to protect it. This is just how the original high end bases that this one emulates were done. Those with extra large hands will find it a little skinny but still playable at the nut. This bass is designed for the little guys but ultimately it's ...

I have a 13 yr old that wants to learn how to play bass. He's just over 4 ft tall and expressed that the guitars he uses in music class are too big for him. He loves it.

I bought this bass because I have smaller hands and don't really like the normal scale bass. It's almost tiny compared to other short scale basses but the sound is great and it came set up right from the box. I just tuned it up and adjusted the height of one string and it's ready to go! Intonation was already set and neck looked good, no sharp frets. Good job Glarry!

Unique little Jazz Bass -No glossy finish. Easy player. Neck pickup is 11K ohms, Bridge is around 7,k ohms I would suggest putting some nice stings on it.

Saw this Amazing very Short Scale Electric Bass Guitar on the Glarry website and purchased it in a heartbeat. Now I own three Glarry basses & one on the way which will make it four. Thank you GLARRY for making it happen for me!!!

7 year old loves it! This is not a toy. This is a real bass and guess what? It sounds amazing. Set it up to your liking and this thing is a ton of fun to play with. Has pickup volumes and so far, no issues. We truly love this bass.

I saw this bass on YouTube and was impressed. I ordered it for my son- who is now also learning to play guitar. The bass arrived at the airline that forwarded to o us very quickly- ahead of schedule (to our small island in the Caribbean - Cayman Brac). The bass was packaged well and arrived very safely- in good condition. We'll have some other great comments as my son plays his first songs on the bass: accompanying his own guitar melodies. Thanks for making something very available and affordab ...

I think this short scale base guitar is a very good buy at the price. The tools to do the setup (truss rod and saddle) are provided and allowed me to reach a descent playing setup. The fretboard and frets are in good shape... no warping of the fretboard, and no high/low/rough frets. The sound is good coming through my amp (via a good cable I already have). This is another good example of Glarry quality (I also have an electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and now this bass) that I have purchased ove ...

WOW ! ITS SMALL............Well made little bass. After adjusting, it played great. Perfect travel instrument and small areas, Perfect Kids bass. Only Dislike is for strings this is not long scale or short scale. It is guitar scale, just a warning if you get better strings. Love the Bass. THANK YOU

I don't know how you guys can make such a good product for so little money. This guitar is so awesome and fun. I have a full size bass guitar that sits in the corner, because my hands are really too small to play it easily. So, I thought I would check this 3/4 size guitar out. Took it out of the box, tuned it up, and it plays great! Even the string height and intonation was set up almost perfect! The only down side is that now I don't have an excuse not to practice. If you have a kid that wants ...

The bass itself is great. The included strap broke within 5 minutes, the faux leather is very weak. Included strings weren't that great but he's 4 so I don't wanna buy him top of the line strings anyway. The tuning knobs were slightly loose but that was an easy fix. Everything else was fine, we got it in plain wood so we could decorate it and it's now painted and covered with dinosaur stickers:)

This is one of the best bass guitars I've ever played. I bought two of them!

I love this guitar! I play a four string guitar as a rule. Not a bass guitar, but a full scale guitar with only four strings. The GW101 is perfect for me after switching out the bass strings for guitar Slinkies. I play it with my hand (fingers) rather than a pick. The neck and body are well-crafted. The tuning keys and bridge are surprisingly good—better than those on my Squier Mini Bass! The only flaw was ground wire from the neck pickup. Its soldering to the top of the pot had come loose, so ...

Pretty little mini (Kids) bass right here that fits exactly what I need for it to do!!! I was pretty surprised at the weight of this small sized bass and even more amazed at the sound it put out!!!! Good recommendation for a child who wants to learn to play bass.....and even BETTER tool for an adult to have for a traveling musician to practice or improvise new bass lines while on the move!!!!! Loving this one, and was just notified that my 2nd GW101 arrived as I'm typing this!!!!!! Well! Gotta g ...

Quite a good value for the price. I copper tape insulated the control cavity and pickup wells to tame the buzzing. Worked very well. I tightened the truss rod, shimmed the neck and it intonated just fine. I played this with a fairly loud drummer through a Rumble 40 for an amped acoustic trio. Pickups are hot enough, amp volume was at around 12-1 O'Clock. It's a beautiful bass too. When I pulled the input jack out to copper insulate the ground wire fell off, no big deal, just soldered it back. I ...
