It's also good for someone switching over from guitar. I didn't have any problems with it sounding "limp and flappy". It sounds the same as a full sized bass and I even play in drop D, so I'm not sure what "detuning" problems you're having.
Really, short scale basses have been used by Paul McCartney, Jack Bruce, Bill Wyman, Plil Lesh and a lot of others. I own one of these and its a fine bass for adults not just children. I also have a Fender Precision (full scale). I enjoy playing both of them
Yeah, it's a super deal and not a bad instrument. Especially good for people with smaller hands or those guitarists who are interested in playing bass (which in my experience is a smart move).

Lots of small amps have been on sale, such as the Rumble 25 (search SD for links).

Previous deal at $139 several months ago appears to have been the lowest price ever:

I just sold off my nicer bass and this would be good to have temporarily or if I end up traveling more. At $129 I could resell it and not lose much after a year or two/

Damn, this is a great deal, but I already have one from the previous deal mentioned above. What would I do with a second one?

I bought this bass for my daughter a few years ago and it's really fantastic. Great sound and just the right size for a young bassist, or to use as a travel bass. I think MSRP used to be $250 and I got ours at $200 and don't regret it one bit. It's an amazing deal at $129!

For those not familiar with this bass or some the terminology, keep in mind it is not a full sized bass. It's a 3/4 scale size meaning really good for children or people with small hands, not recommended for average adults really. They also sound kind of limp and flappy when plugged up And horrible if you detune it any lower.

It's a great deal and bass for someone who has just started learning for sure though. It really doesn't have any specs I can find on the sale page. So...

I got one of these used a while back with some extra a couple of years ago for $100 for me and my (at the time) 10yo. This is a pretty super deal. The purple is badass.
I love these mini instruments. We also have a Jackson Minion.

I can't say what it would be like new right out of the box, but ours plays pretty well. Personally, I prefer these small instruments - they're less cumbersome and you can move around them so quickly if you're used to longer frets. A bonus is that the Mikro bass closely matches the size of a typical Stratocaster - so it'll fit in a normal guitar gig bag. You won't need a longer bass bag.

The main downside is that if you need to borrow someone else's instrument (ie if you keep your bass at home and play a bass owned by a school or venue), it's likely it'll be full size and you'd need to adjust - you may just want to bring your bass with you.

(No shame in small instruments! Along the same lines, Ed Sheeran plays a teeny tiny guitar, not a full size.)

Is the purple darker than the photo in adorama? I've seen some other photos online that show it to be quite a bit darker than the product photo on here and the Ibanez site.
