He says it’s probably a simple fix of just something coming loose during shipping. Other than the defect of the knob we love everything about the guitar. Though the 2022 Rock Hall induction ceremony had its fair share of high-end gear on display, it was Dolly Parton’s humble mini bass guitar that stole the show. Parton playing an electric is notable itself, but Parton playing a $99 Mitchell MM100 is even more of a story.
If you enjoy doing that kind of thing, you’ll have fun and can end up with something decent. If you just want to play the bass, it’d probably wiser to save and spend a bit more. To be fair, you can’t possibly expect great quality at that price… I do wonder why anyone would make a bass for sale at this price – there comes a point where you’re just building down to a price.
Several reviewers did point out a slight hum, and suggested there may be a grounding issues with the bass. You can also choose other colors and models. Generally speaking, we arrange for shipment within 48 hours after placing the order.
I think so, with a caveat – honestly I think once set up properly these make superb basses for beginners or otherwise, but they really do need some fettling to make them more playable, which ultimately might mean a beginner sticks with it. The trouble, as mentioned, is getting a beginner to realise that they should put some cash aside for a setup when they buy one – however with a test sample of one bass, I’m not able to judge how well setup there are generally. As mine had a little backbow on the neck I think a beginner would be reluctant to try and adjust that themselves. Immediately upon picking up the bass, I could see how well finished it appeared to be. The bright yellow paint was even and flawless to my eye – and the fit and finish of the accoutrements seemed every bit as good as I expected.
If I were you, I would try to get a used Squire or Ibanez and a used amp of some kind. Go to a used instrument store or even a pawn shop— try before you buy. I really wouldn’t take my chances with buying a low end instrument online. Low end instruments can be good, but you have to make that assessment in person because often the quality control is very spotty.
