Legacy Bass PJ410 Black is a budget line bass with no...”

Written on: 07/05/2009

Good Points
price!its super cheap.feels solid due to the weight of the body. the extra jazz pickup at the bridge is good for getting some tone out of it.overall its a what pay is all you get type bass.

Bad Points
sadly build quality is a real issue.after 1-2 weeks of use the pickups failed.after it was swapped for another new one, again the pickups dropped and recessed in to the body out of the plastic holders thus massively increasing the distance between the strings and the magnet poles.gaffer tape fix later and its plugging away still...just, a year on. poor paint is easily chipped and cracking, neck also prone to bending ruining the action frequently. quite a wide fat neck so can be awkward for small hands to play. overall there are better budget basses out there for a little extra on top of this r.r.p. if avoidable get something else or if not use it to thrash on stage and smash at the end of a storming gig!!

General Comments
Legacy Bass PJ410 Black is a budget line bass with no frills. generally retailing for as cheap as £79.99 in a decent shop and as much as £129.99 in others! came with dimarzio strings, which is an improvement on the factory strings and comes with a legacy canvas case, which offers no protection really due to lack of padding.sound is basic and little between high and low tones.get the model with the extra bridge jazz pick up to get some tonal variety.bit farty and tinny sounding but with a good amp and chorus can sound much brighter/warmer.
