    6th Street Pub Electric Bass - White

    When you want that bone-rattling deep, smooth bass sound, made famous by artists as diverse as Steve Harris (Iron Maiden), John Deacon (Queen), Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), and Dee Dee Ramone, you want the 6th Street Pub Electric Bass from Monoprice!

    This bass guitar features a split single-coil pickup, which produces a smooth sound with tremendous low-end presence, which is perfect for the driving rhythms of heavy metal and progressive rock. It is constructed of basswood, with a bolt-on maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. The nut is 38mm wide. It has chrome plated knobs, one for volume and one for tone.

    The bass is fitted with medium strings (.045, .065, .080, .105) and has been professionally setup by Master Luthier Roger Gresco, so it is ready to play right out of the box. It comes with a 5mm sponge gig bag and a truss wrench.

    PROS: Great looks, nice sound, awesome price. It has chops.

    CONS: Needs better or at least some shielding.

    How do I get the bits of shipping plastic film out from under the knobs without damaging the pickguard? It sounds and looks great. I did a slow warm up tuning slowly and all the buzz disappeared.

    PROS: Feels great sitting without a strap. Yay no batteries!

    CONS: All I can find is one screw on a pickup was a little askew but that is nitpickin.

    Updated: Decent, affordable, well worth it
    I ordered this bass when it was on sale for $112.47, free shipping. Delivery time was as expected since this is coming from California via UPS and I'm all the way in Miami, FL. The bass itself is definitely worth it. I really like the craftsmanship and the way it plays and sounds. I've seen and played more expensive basses that don't feel as good as this one. Do I recommend it? Definitely. It's a crazy bargain and I'm extremely satisfied. My previous review, I didn't peruse the bass too well, but after proper inspection and playing, it's a 9. I will most likely get another one the next time it goes on sale. Also, attached is my unboxing video for this bass if you want to see how well-packaged it is.

    PROS: Craftsmanship is very well done. For a bass at this price, I am surprised at the quality. Neck feels good, non-intrusive. It plays great. Tuners are a decent size for easy turning. Sound quality is decent even with the really bright strings. Electronics work as they should, as well as the volume/tone buttons. With a proper pickup swap, the tone knob adjustment will most likely be more noticeable. I can notice out now, but not like on other basses.

    CONS: The pickguard had quite a number of scratches when I took the bass out of the packaging. If I was paying a lot more for this bass, I'd definitely RMA it but at the price I got it for, it doesn't really bother me. The rest of the body itself was unblemished. The lower pickup is "angled" but that can be fixed. Stock strings definitely need to be swapped, way too bright. Other than that, no complaints.

    I think they put different strings on mine because there is nothing twangy about this one. It has classic p-bass tone and seems to hold tuning quite well, so far. The neck seems a little narrow at the nut more like a jazz bass, which I'm plenty cool with. The maple neck has a nice finish.



    A few craftsmanship problems, in particular the gouges on the pick guard. It looks as if whoever screwed it in place was having a bad day because there are pretty deep nicks at nearly every screw location. Would be nice if Monoprice would send me a replacement pick guard for it. That and the tone and gain knobs with the wanky assembly I can fix easily enough though. At least the paint job is good



    For the price I got it at, I am quite astonished at how good it sounds. I've had a few much more expensive basses and tone wise this is surprisingly close.



    Except for the pick guard issue, I am quite satisfied. I think I got much more than my money's worth of musical instrument here.



    So, any chance you can comp me a replacement pick guard Monoprice?

    PROS: solid deep smooth tone

    low weight

    well set up

    nice fast neck - easy player

    arctic white? paint job

    CONS: deep gouge marks on the pick-guard

    tone and volume knobs are slightly crooked and uneven height

    Response from Monoprice
    Hi John,

    Thank you for your review, glad to hear you are enjoying PID 610751. Regarding the pick guard, would you be able to send a photo of the gouge marks? We do not carry any replacement pick guards unfortunately, however I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement should it become an issue. I sincerely apologize for the issue with the pick guard. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

    Good for the price
    I've been playing bass for only a short time now. A friend of mine hooked me up with a fantastic Charvel neck-though-body bass that I've been practicing on and playing for the last few months. I wanted a cheap second bass that I could throw in the back of my station wagon without worrying about damaging a more valuable instrument, so when I saw these come on sale I decided to pick one up.



    Since I'm not an expert bassist by any means, I'm going to try to stick with objective measurements in my review here.



    The first thing I noticed when I unpackaged the bass was that it was extremely well packed. Despite the shipping company doing a pretty good job of beating up the box, the bass itself arrived without any blemishes.



    I'll start with the problems I noticed. First, the tuners on this bass are tiny. I think they are meant for a guitar. This means that if you cut your strings to length as normal (normal is to leave about the distance between three tuners as extra slack), the last wind on the E and A strings will look like they are about to pop off the tuners.



    Second, the pickups weren't level, they were both tilted forward. This was because the foam behind them was angled. I corrected this by cutting off the factory foam and replacing it with two pieces of self adhesive window insulation foam strip from the hardware store.



    Third, the stock strings are pretty "twangy." I know a lot of bassists like bright strings, but these are over the top in my opinion. I swapped them out for a standard set of D'Addario EXL170 nickel-wound lights and am much happier with the tone.



    Finally, the "tone" pot doesn't really do much of anything. I can turn it through it's full range of motion while sustaining a note, and I can't tell much of a difference in tone. It's not a big deal, but something to note.



    Now the positive. As an experiment, I plugged the bass into an amp straight out of the box and tried playing it, and after tuning it up, it played just fine, which is pretty impressive for a bass at this price.



    The setup is quite good out of the box. The nut on mine is cut just a hair lower that I prefer, but everything else is spot on, including the intonation. If all of them are set up as well as mine is, I would be perfectly comfortable recommending this bass to a beginner. It's much better than both the department store specials and the Squier basses I've tried.



    I also plugged it in to RockSmith 2014 and was grooving along immediately.



    It's also quite a lot lighter than my Charvel, meaning that I can use any old guitar shoulder strap comfortably.



    Other thoughts. The "gig bag" that it comes with is better than nothing, but not by a lot. If you plan to haul this bass around, I'd recommend upgrading to either a 20mm gig bag or a hard case if you can budget one. Personally I'd prefer that the bass come with a shoulder strap instead.



    All in all, I think this bass is a bargain at it's price. Throw a new set of strings on it (around 15 bucks for the EXL170 set from Amazon or BassStringsOnline) and jam.

    PROS: Good price.

    Decent setup makes it quite playable out of the box.

    Classic P-bass looks.

    CONS: Pickups weren't level.

    Stock strings extremely "twangy."

    Tuners are tiny - they look more like guitar tuners than bass tuners to me.

    "Tone" pot doesn't seem to do much of anything.

    Surprisingly nice bass
    I am impressed with the surprisingly good action on and playability of this bass, with its relatively light weight, with its build quality, and with its sound. I am, quite frankly, astonished at its price. I have played better basses, to be sure, but they have cost significantly more, and their prices clearly show the law of diminishing returns spending lots more does not buy improvement in quality commensurate with the increase in price. Were I playing professionally, I'd still use a more expensive bass. As a primarily six-string guitarist who likes to keep a decent bass around, however, this item simply cannot be beat.

    PROS: Smooth matte neck finish, perfect cosmetics, quality feel to controls, nice sound

    CONS: At this price, there is nothing I could consider a negative. At three or four times its price, there would be nothing I could consider a negative.

    reasonably good bass guitar
    The bass guitar is decent build and sound quality...read Monoprice promise " professionally set up by Master Luthier Roger Gresco so you can ply right out of the box", yeah right, my bass had all kinds of fret buzz. Took me a while to adjust the guitar..but, it is OK now...I guess , one can not expect too much for a bass guitar for around $100...

    PROS: decent quality, sounds fine

    CONS: poor set up by Master Luthier Roger Gresco

    Very nice bass for not much money
    I have waited over a year to review this, to see how it holds up. It is still being used for concerts and recordings, and has been a great value. First, I was extremely impressed with how great the packaging was. It arrived in perfect condition and the finish is as good as any expensive bass that I have bought. It came setup with perfect intonation - something that even expensive name-brand guitars and basses don't always have from the factory. I did adjust the bridge (string) height a little to prevent buzzing, but this is not unusual. The volume and tone pots are very smooth and more consistent across their range than the Fender basses that I have owned. I did replace the nut with a Tusq nut, as I have done on most of my guitars and basses. The owner of the bass shop could not believe the price of this bass when I told him. This bass sounds almost identical to a mid '70's precision that I have owned. I also had an early '60's Precision, which was an entirely different sound. My son plays this bass and it always sounds amazingly great on stage as well as on recordings. He gets a big sound with just enough of that midrange growl that these types of basses are know for. I also bought a thicker bag for traveling. About a year later, I had to make a truss-rod adjustment, but that was easy. The truss rod and bridge tools are included. I highly recommend this bass. It sounds and plays better than some Precision basses I have played. I would buy this again. The original intent was to have a less expensive bass for my son to carry to practices without worrying about damage or theft to his very expensive basses. He ended up using this Monoprice bass for certain gigs and recordings, over any of his other basses.

    PROS: Great finish and look. Great sound. Excellent packaging. Adjustment tools included.
    Very smooth volume and tone pots. Great value.

    CONS: Nut could be made out of better material. Included case is fine for around the house, but not traveling.
    Machine heads were not perfectly rotated into precise alignment, but this does not affect the performance.

    Great, after set up...
    Bought this bass on sale and i'm glad I did. It has a nice feel to it, and after playing around with the bridge and truss rod settings, I got all of the strings buzz free. Plugged it in and was pleasantly surprised at the tone, considering I only paid $100 for it. I'm playing it through the Monoprice bass amp, which is also pretty decent.



    Overall I would say this is a great beginner to mid range bass.

    PROS: Solidly built, great price, decent tone.

    CONS: All strings had bad buzz out of the box at the first 5 frets.
