Yes - it is a rock legend already

Sound The SR5 is already becoming a hard rock legend as far as bass goes. 34" scale on this 5'er, but I had to check that. I read it plays like a 35 scale, but I thought it was. I checked EBMM site and it is a 34" scale. My SR5 has one humbucking pickup, active preamp, I get a huge variation in tone from the preamp and pickup selector switch. This bass tends to cut through well in the rock environment easily, I have not played it in any other style of music yet, but it has a nice full tone that I can play with. I play this through my audio interface for recording but mostly live I use an ashdown head into a 2x10 cabs, plenty of thump and rumble.

Action, Fit, & Finish I got mine used, I can report on the oil finished neck feels perfect, no stick and not too thin.

Reliability & Durability I do not need a backup with this bass, I bring spare strings and a 9 volt battery to a gig, but that's it. The finish is tough, I've banged it around a few times and have had no issues, and it looks great, I have a trans teal finish on mine. Neck it attached with 6 neck screws rather than 4.

Customer Support I never had to deal with them other than to ask them the age of my bass, and they answered me promptly

Liked about it Great tone that's adjustable
good looks, from classic styling to nice finish
Well built, built like a tank

Didn't like Heavy - Well heavy makes the tone sometimes and this one is not all that light.

Overall satisfaction:
