  • Best Bass I have ever played!!!

    As reviewed by Chance Bodine on 12/11/2013

    I know that some people will not believe me, but this is the best bass I have ever played. I have played numerous Fender P and J basses (USA,MIM,and MIJ), and have owned a Ibanez BTB675 (traded it in for this bass). No other bass that I have played comes close to the play-ability and sound of this bass. The action is perfect without any fret buzz. It's very lightweight and I love the glossy neck on it. It was a steal since I did not have to pay any money for it. The only issue with the bass is the output of the pickups (when compared to a Fender P or J bass the output of the pickups in noticeable), but all you have to do is turn the bass amp up a little bit. I would highly recommend this bass to anyone and for $300 it's amazing! Don't spend $1,000 to $2,000 for a Fender bass when you could have this one! Go for it!

  • Spectacular for the price

    As reviewed by Bradley on 2/1/2015

    This bass looks, sounds, and plays like it's priced 2-3 times more. The neck binding looks and feel superb, and the action was perfect right out of the box. I didn't plan to spend a lot on a bass regardless, and now that I've got this in my hands, I couldn't imagine having made a better choice. For the cost- you get a much higher quality instrument than you might expect, and you'll therefore appreciate every note that much more.

  • nice bass, great price

    As reviewed by George Loose on 12/15/2013

    I bought a Pino Paladino model Classic Vibe Squire P-bass off Craigslist about a year ago and was completely blown away and had to change my opinion of Squire instruments. So with that experience I've been wanting a J-bass and was already looking at the Squire line because I wanted something good but inexpensive to play in bars where something could happen. I was ready to purchase a regular Vintage Modified but literally at the last minute noticed this model. '77 has always been a year of significance to me as it was the year I graduated and then the look of this particular model [black] with the neck binding and MoP inlays sold me. I'll admit I was very apprehensive about purchasing an instrument via the mail but for the price plus the Black Friday discount I figured it was worth a try, glad I did. Arrived in a few days and looked as good as the pic. Had a couple of issues which were to be expected and acceptable for an inexpensive import. The pick guard is lifted up a bit in several spots and the jack plate did not sit flat on the body. I had an MiJ jack plate laying around so switched that out. And though the pick guard is really not that bad I already had planned to get an aged pearl pick guard anyway so that was also no biggie. I might change the bridge too at least to a low priced heavy type because the plate on this one looks like it might be straining not to bend. Had it not been for those three things I would have given it 5 stars. Now the good part. It plays every bit as good as my expensive PJ Deluxe and I have no plan to change out the pups. It has a great percussive attack yet is bright and rich in tone and with more than adequate sustain even though it is very light. I didn't used to like light instruments because they felt cheap and unsubstantial but with age and back problems I welcome that now. But having said that I don't feel I'm making some great trade-off or sacrifice, because this is a very nice bass. So far the tuners seem fine and it stays in tune. The fit and finish of the wooden parts, paint and frets seem flawless as far as I've been able to tell. One thing though, I was expecting a satin finish neck and it is a poly finish but it is not sticky like some so it's not that bad. But I probably will sand it off at some point and apply Tung oil which is my favorite. At least from my perspective I say you can't go wrong getting one of these and I plan to get at least one more because our set list is about half and half, E and E-flat tuning. My Squire-P has flat wounds for that sort of stuff. And then I'll be leaving my high$$ instruments safe at home.
