Controls What is this?I've been playing guitar for 41 years and I own 11 guitars. I've never had a purchasing experience that was so easy and so accommodating then this one. I've bought from all kinds of competitors and shops that are no longer in business...you name it; and compared to Sweetwater, they are all cold, calloused, and customer service sucks. I've received emails and phone calls from Sweetwater regarding my purchase inquiring of my satisfaction and this is all for a purchase of $399. Rest assured, my next on-line purchase comes from them. Not to mention what a beautiful guitar this EJ-200 is. Buy it or pre-order it. You WON'T be dissapointed.

Whether you call it the low end, the groove, the funk, the drive, or the swing, it's bassists who bring it. The bass guitar really is the unheralded leader of the band. So whether your lead guitarist knows how important you are or not, you have an extremely important job. And finding the right tools for the trade is equally important.
First a little background. The electric bass guitar was first designed in the 1950s. Initially conceived as a way for guitarists to sit in on bass, the instrument quickly took over as the preeminent low-end instrument for the music of the day. Though bass options were limited back then, today you'll find a plethora of choices in woods, electronics, scale length, strings, and more. Luckily, whether you want fretted, fretless, bolt-on, or neck-through, you're going to find it at Sweetwater.
