This is a nice 5-string with great sounds and it plays easily.
Made in Korea, maple neck, 24 fret rosewood fingerboard, alder body. 5-strings, active Alvarez-branded P/J pickups by EMG. 2 volume and two tone controls. Metallic red pearl finish. Tuners: 3 up, 2 down.
Slim neck, fast, low action.
Sound Quality:
The controls allow you to get a passive tone in detent, but add or subtract highs and lows for each pickup with the active push that makes it have a huge range. Huge low-end possible.
It's pretty old, and need hardly any set-up. Neck is straight, eleconics quiet... really good.
