Comments about Mitchell MB300 Modern Rock Bass with Active EQ:

I've played guitar closed to twenty years and repair older guitars as a hobby. This is my first bass guitar and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
I like the tone I can get from it, with two pickups and three tone controls it has a lot of adjustment. The neck is nice and straight and has a nice feel to it. There was one fret that would buzz so I leveled the frets and did the basic setup and it plays great everywhere on the neck.
I am kind of picky though but now I have a good playing and sounding bass that I really like.
