Best 5 string for the price

The quality of this bass is superior to anything I've tried in a long time. I had certain doubts, but this is beyond belief. The construction is every bit as solid, as the one on instruments from the 1000+ price range. Even the battery slot is well made and unlike the situation with other instruments, it didn't have any wires hanging around in the cavity.

I honestly enjoy everything about the bass with two exceptions - the pickups don't work for me, aesthetically and I would prefer if it had straplocks. I did buy a set of those, but the actual price difference would probably be minimal.
