  • Better than expected, fun to play

    My Ignition Beatle Bass is pretty well-made, and sounds much better than I had expected. I strung it with D'Addario Chromes flatwounds, and the sustain is adequate for everyday accompaniment in a band. Tone through my Fender Rumble 40 is perfect for my needs (oldies band) -- not thumpy or twangy wit…

  • Awesome!!

    Verified Purchase

    Looking beyond the iconic status that this bass enjoys, as hard as that may be, this bass is a real pleasure to play. It's all been said before: the neck is small, the body is lightweight, the fit & finish is beautiful & it sounds awesome!!

    Beautiful and lightweight with a small neck for medium sized hands. Sound without an amp is great for practice since it is a hollow guitar. With a bass amp it blasts off and there is no 9v battery to replace.

    Good woodwork, Sound is pretty good.
