Comments: Off the rack these basses are overall mediocre . The finish bridge and tuners are good . The tone is very muddy and the action/fretwork is poor.
If you have one and get pro neck and fret work ( to get nice action with no buzzes) and install new pickups and electronics (EMG'S sound great with it) the instrument can be outstanding . I have 2 Vaccaro Basses and after extensive custom work they are my primary live basses. I like them better than my Ken Smith basses , but it takes a lot of custom work to get them to a pro instrument level .
