Some commented that the bass stayed in tune even after sitting idle for extended periods of time. TalkBass.com – the hands-down leading forum for bass guitar players. Reviews of gear are unbiased, straight forward, and from actual real bass players and customers. Just a lot of bass players providing their honest opinions.
Let’s take a closer look at the details, including sound samples, and my review at the end. Reviewers reported that the neck was smooth and easy to move around on, which allows for fast action with your fretting hand. All the reviews that we studied said the bass looked great right out of the box. It’s a good looking instrument that is well constructed. The paint job looked good, and none of the basses had any dings, scratches or imperfections. Several reviewers commented that, despite their expectation, the bass didn’t feel cheap – or look “like a toy”.
Coming in at around $75, the GP comes in 8 finish options, including this beautiful natural-type finish they call Burlywood. The basswood body features a maple neck with rosewood fretboard and 20 frets on the P Bass styled body. The split-single coil style is based on the famous P Bass style, making this a familiar sonic choice for Fender/Squier fans. The 34″ scale length bass also is also fairly lightweight, making it a good choice for players who prefer to stand and play. Playing a electric bass guitar is easy to learn, but it’s hard to master, it all depends on where you want to match. The right quality of the correct tuning and playing bass guitar and the richness of the rich tones are truly fascinating.
When Glarry Bass Guitars first came out not too long ago, they were cast aside by most as just another cheap bass. The phrase, “you get what you pay for” seemed likely. What could you possibly get for a bass priced at under $70? In all likelihood , this was probably a cheap bass, much like a toy, that wasn’t very playable, and wouldn’t last very long. It plays and sounds just as good as basses which cost much, much more!
I have large hands, and the neck on this bass fits my left hand perfectly. I do need to set the intonation-which I had expected-but other than that, the string height and truss rod were adjusted perfectly when I got it. Love the body shape and the beautiful clear finish, and I love how the body’s wood grain looks. This is my second bass I have purchased from Glarry. I bought a 5 string GIB style 24 fret bass a couple of years ago, when they first came out.
