Sounds terrific

Had the bass for a few weeks now, and I have to say it's marvelous. I've owned loads of basses over the years, some really nice ones too, but I have to say this Jive bass is really, really good. Excellent playability, weight, and build, but most of all the sound!

It sounds terrific.

Very happy with it.

Amazing

I just received my Betsy Bass, all the way down here in Australia. Let me say I could not be more pleased. I'd say this be would about the best value bass on the market. It's amazing you can do what you've done for the money. I'm well pleased and very happy to have made the purchase... so, thank you!

I love these strings, much brighter than flats and still so smooth. So pleased, thanks. Ant

Super kick ass service

Just brought some thicker than usual bass strings (Hooky signatures) and got an amazing handwritten note, reminding me to incrementally wind them on! Super kick ass service and hugely appreciated! Consider me a hugely impressed and satisfied customer. Please send my thanks to whoever did that and for going above and beyond!

Superb quality

I ordered this bass with a couple of modifications to it. I had the bridge changed to the Babicz gold and a Black Scratch plate. I'm blown away with the standard of finish and how the bass has been set up. Out of the box ready to play, no rough edges along the frets and no fret buzz and the neck plays well.

This purchase was originally meant to be a decent backup bass, But It stands tall against my Fender USA bass and may even become my bass of choice.

If you are looking for an alternative to the mainstream basses on offer, Don't hesitate to go for one of these Basses. I seriously can't fault this bass, I'm absolutely blown away.

Looks beautiful and sounds stunning

My decision to buy this Jive bass was influenced by the Power Bass (with Babicz bridge and flatwound strings) that I purchased a few days ago. It exceeded my expectations! It looks beautiful and sounds stunning - and a good price too.

Saw this advertised in Bass Player magazine. Great looking guitar and I like the black silicone strings.
