  • This IS a real Bass.

    As reviewed by MLH on 2/21/2009

    This IS a real Bass. I am 54 years old and have been around the block a couple of times. My other bass is a real '65 precision bass not the vintage re-issue. This bass is comparable to the original. The negative comments I've seen regarding the Squier do not seem to be true for me. It weighs only a pound more than my precision, the pickups perform well even on the B string and it seems to stay in tune. This is not the bass with active pickups. That one did seem very heavy in comparison. Since I have never used active pickups I see no need for them. my Ampeg BA210SP handles it just fine including slap and pop sounds. The price is only a bonus.

  • The best

    As reviewed by Zac on 1/22/2008

    this bass is great, i needed to find a bass quick for small money and to be able to find a 5 string would really help me in the genre i play. there was only one problem but im sure it only happened when the b string was put on, where one of the screws on the bridge kept on loosening and part of the bridge was crooked on that same string. all of this caused a lot of rattling in that string. it was all fixed by taking off the string and evening it out. this bass could be used from rock to jazz to metal. great overall!

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Frank on 9/5/2010

    Simply an outstanding deal. The finish and workmanship is flawless, every bit as good as my Fender 4 -string Jazz. Great tone! Frets are smooth, and the setup was nice and low with no fret buzz right out of the box. Volume and tone controls are nicely graduated, enabling you to make small adjustments easily. String spacing is a wee bit more generous than some other 5-strings, and this is one of the main reasons I chose this bass. It easily worth twice what I paid for it. The black model I bought looks great, but I do wish they still offered it in the Arctic white/white pickguard scheme.
