I've had mine since 1996. I made an exchange with my brother against a mexican Fender P-bass. It's still going strong. Even though it probably need a fret job, the neck is still very straight, and the action is great. All of the hardware and pots are fine, no play in the tuners, no noise from the pots. I've toured with it, practiced quite a bit in the last 22 years. Besides some minor tweaking of the neck with the changes of the seasons, I've had to do no repairs. It's indestructible. The sound is very decent for what is essentially a low price bass, it's got good dynamics, and it's very reliable. I'm still in love after 22 years. Great bass!
