Overall Rating:
Warmly recommended for any lefthanded bassplayer who wants to get "unplugged"! Excellent price/quality ratio, you won't find another acoustic bass for that price and usefulness!
Features:
I've heard Ortega is a division of Roland. Probably built in Asia. Very nice finish, volume, tone, tuner and phase buttons.
Playability:
Playing an acoustic bass means more work for the fingers! But it still plays wonderful! In case of amping the bass, a black rubber feedback killer in the soundhole is generally needed.
Sound Quality:
The bass is hooked up on a Markbass MoMark 600 Watt with Markbass 4x10 bass cabinet. This bass is used for gigs in caf├ęs and bars where owners want a "cozy" band, this means a band that doesn't play LOUD! So along with the acoustic guitars, simple percussion (cajon and other stuff) this means a very intimate way of playing music in a band...
Durability:
This bass came with trimlocks, a nice leather guitarstrap, a very nice padded bag with lots of room for strings, straps etc.
