Ok there are some issues with this instrument, the bridge is a bit too narrow to get perfect intonation, the strings that come standard are too light especially the E string which seems loose. However, don't let that deter you, this is an excellent instrument for the price. It is extremely versatile in terms of tone and range. It's not the bass you're used to nor is it quite a guitar but it can sound like both. It will require some adjustments to your normal playing style for both guitar players and bass players but for me that has been part of the fun. There are plenty of forums online for how to upgrade parts/ strings to overcome the afore mentioned issues.
