The body has a cool design, the neck and body feel great for the most part. It's really light, which makes it easy to carry around and move on stage for showmanship (if that's your style). I personally love that the name is Huntington Outlaw P-Bass (which can be abbreviated to HOP Bass). Really, if you want a bass that will cover all that needs to be covered with a bass, you're pretty much golden with this one.
The only things that I will say work against this one are that my volume knob, rather than gradually increase and decrease volume as it's being turned, will instead just turn on and off. Any volume in between is very hard to access. I also played in a show once where the bass actually had to crescendo while playing the note, and the volume knob actually caused static in the sound system while I was changing the volume and playing the note at the same time. The other knob works just fine, so it almost makes me wonder why there was an issue with one and not the other, but it is what it is.
I also hear a buzz when playing the E string, but the buzz doesn't go through to the amp, so I guess that's not too much of an issue.
All in all, it's a great bass for a beginner, and I bet you could get going professionally with this, too. I'm not going to say it's as good as a Fender, but you could probably get 3 of these for the price of one Fender.
The extras that come with it (case, strings, book) are all just icing on the already delicious cake.
the one problem (not the guitar company or even amazons fault). Fedex left the package outside in an unusual place near the back of the house because nobody was home. We got the delivery notification and thought someone had stolen it from the porch. by the time we found it in the back yard, it had been rained on. Luckily it was very well packaged and everything inside the box was also in a plastic bag. Go amazon!
