Higher quality's electronics in my opinion would transform this bass!
However I recommend MAB 09 to starters for its price is not high and its visual appeal is on good levels.
Where Obtained: A music store in Athens.
My bass is built in China.It has 22 frets and features 2 pickups(a P one and a J one)which provide a satisfactory variety of tone.Each pickup has its volume control and there's a third for the tone.Its electronics are passive.
It's playability is not excellent but it's a good solution for slowly evolving players.
