Super impressive bass

By: on 10 January 2022
I am a guitarist and bought this to do some recording. I had fairly low expectations, at this price I was just hoping it would stay in tune… Instead it’s a properly good instrument. The intonation and action was great out of the box, the tuners are stable, the body is resonant, the neck is supremely playable and well finished. How they have done it at this price I have no idea..but I’m very happy they managed it as I now have a bass that I would be comfortable to gig with. Assuming Artists quality control is consistent and mine isn’t just a fluke, then I would really recommend trying this vs even the CV squiers.

Pretty good overall

Pretty good guitar overall. Sounds pretty good for the price. Feels like a good starter guitar, cannot say whether it will be swapped eventually. The only bug bear I have noted is the lack of a line or marker on the knobs to better gauge where the tone and volumes are set. The addition of a spare set of strings is a welcome surprise and will be put to good use soon as I am unsure how long the strings have been on the instrument for. I think if the issue of the lack of a small line on the knobs were addressed at some point that would be perfect.

Another great product

Artist is quickly becoming my favourite brand. I am a multi instrumentalist and do not have the cash to pay top dollar for all my instruments. I own something from almost every category artist makes and they have never disappointed. If you don't care about a flashy name on the headstock, do seriously consider their products. This bass is no exception.

Again, I am out of words on how to thank you for your continued support!

Good bass for beginner/intermediate

By: on 20 April 2021
I'm mostly a guitar player but I wanted a value-for-money bass guitar to jam on. Very happy with this bass guitar with the price I've paid. It was between this and the PB2 but I've read the JB2 gives more tonal options so I went with the JB2. Neck feels great. Factory setup was good - I just had to adjust the intonation and action a little bit (for my personal preference; they give you all the tools needed for you to do that). This isn't a light bass guitar but feels very solid.

I tried several 500 dollar bass guitars at the local shop and ended up buying this one. Wise choice on my part! Even playing through a 10w Warwick anp this bass has excellent tone. Equal or better than the 500 dollar bass guitars I tried. Perfect intonation, I only gave a small turn on the truss rod and a wee bit of fret buzz was gone. The strings sound clear and bright, no need to change them. And, Artist gave a free back up set of strings. The finish is immaculate and the knobs and tuners are excellent. Frets and fret edges are polished and smooth. I tried playing it through my guitar compressor and a Phase90 pedal and the sound boost and tone was stunningly good. 10 out of 10 rating.

Great Value and Quality

Highly recommend Artist Guitars customer service team - absolutely fantastic packaging and arrived in a couple days after ordering. Had a missing piece off one of the accessories, emailed Artist Guitars and they replaced and shipped a complete new replacement accessory free of charge! You get more than what you pay for here, I will definitely return to Artist Guitars to purchase any of my future bass and drum requirements. Thanks!

VERY VERY GOOD SERVICE, SUPPER BASS SOUND AND GREAT HARD CASE FOR THE MONEY. I am 70 th year old and they had not anything like this in the sixties for the money, you had to pay a hell of lot more to get this tone and sound. Rob McAlister.

Good but not perfect

By: on 22 December 2017
The two things that bother me about this guitar are 1) the stupid clear plastic that is nailed onto the white bit of the guitar. No matter how much I peel off there's always bits left and it looks tacky. Why o manufacturers do that? 2) The chipped wood in the fret board which has been there since it arrived. But overall I'm happy with it. Price and customer service has been excellent.
