PylePro has put together a professional electric bass guitar package for sale. This bass kit comes with everything you need to get started rocking out. Included are an electric bass guitar, a Pyle Pro 15B bass amplifier with four channel equalizer, headphone jack and 6.5” woofer, three Pearloid guitar picks, a 10 ft 1/4” patch cord, hex hey to adjust the neck, nylon guitar strap, extra strings, and a one year limited warrant.
The guitar itself is a full size bass guitar with a grey sunburst and black finish. The body is made out of basswood to make it lighter and has a double cut away shape which fits better to the body and allows the player to reach higher up the neck to the top frets. The neck is separate and bolts onto the guitar. It is made out of maple and has a maple fret board. There are three magnetic pickups on this guitar.
One is a precision bridge pickup and the other two are Jazz neck pickups. Each one has a chrome finished tuning knobs for bass, tone, and volume. This gives the player excellent control over the sound their guitar produces. The tuning machines also have a chrome finish. There is also a built in tuner
As with most built in tuners on bargain guitars, this one has its problems. It only works part of the time and often not very well. The amp is small and not very powerful and the cord to it is short. This is not meant for any performance. The guitar has some problems with the strings being a little too close to the neck. Mostly this seems to be a factory defect that did not get stopped by quality control.
The frets are also a little big for some people. The biggest problem with this set up is the shipping. The neck is not packaged well and sometimes comes with dents, bent tuners, or it comes strung and over tightened which bends the neck.
While the amp is small and not very powerful, it works perfectly well for practice in your house or room. The cord is adequate for this as well. When the strings are tuned and properly off the neck, as most of the guitars are, the sound is pretty good. The guitar plays well and produces a wide range of tones with good clarity. It’s volume as loud enough for most anyone. The guitar is also easy to play.
It’s body is lighter than some other guitars and the shape is made to work with the player so they can reach the highest frets. The finish is also attractive with its color contrast and glossy finish.
While not for professional use or for gigs, this guitar is excellent for a beginner or someone who wants a bass guitar to practice or travel with. It is affordable and comes with everything you need to get started. If there are any defects, the company will work with you to fix or replace the product.
Also, most issues are easily fixed by your local music shop. But the guitar is a quality piece with excellent sound and would make anyone a great bass guitar without breaking the bank.
