I rented one and it had some buzzing on the D string, but L&M fixed it. I decided to buy one, and it had a buzzing G string. L&M fixed that too, but the output from the pickup is uneven between the strings. It?s pretty good acoustically, with a full scale neck and huge body. It feels like a real bass. Amplified, I had no feedback issues at performance volume, but it just doesn?t cut through the mix despite fiddling with the tone controls. The mix was piano, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drums and three vocals. It?s okay for jamming, I guess, but not performing live through either backline or FOH amplification.

I picked this up for two reasons. First I needed an acoustic bass for a high school classical guitar ensemble that I teach. Second, I play in an acoustic folk trio with guitar and mandolin. For both purposes this bass works well as an acoustic instrument, holding its own and producing nice sound. It does need a FIRM pluck to bring out its voice, but once you get the feel of it, it's awesome. You will have to rely on other reviews for its amplified performance... I haven't even plugged it in yet. Note that I tried some other big - name brand ABGs and found them all lacking in the acoustic department... Basically they were more hollow body electrics than anything else. The Denver name is associated with really cheap entry level instruments so I was a bit leery of this one at first, but it's well put together and finished, and I am very satisfied that it's a good instrument. If you want to play an acoustic bass, this is a good choice.

Picked it up on a whim for a celtic show. Performed flawlessly!! Seriously good bang for your buck! Since used for several acoustics shows. Very versatile and adjustable in terms of sound with the onboard EQ.

We use this bass in a college music club and it held abuse until the neck started bending. Got it fixed and now it sound as good if not better than before.

Picked this up a couple of months ago and really like it, seems really well put together. I really like Fishman acoustic products and it has a Fishman pre-amp/tuner built in. Has more of a Hoffman vibe than a P-bass vibe but that is to be expected as it is an acoustic bass. Nice straight neck, good action and light and comfortable for such a big guitar. Great value, get one while you can!

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
