  • Solid sound, Nicely built & Great look.

    As reviewed by Chuck Glass on 3/13/2014

    I pulled my red Squier P-bass 5-er out of the box & was immediately impressed with the finish and craftsmanship without considering it's an import & costs under $300! I plugged it in and was even more impressed with it's tone. It has the traditional Fender P thump & growl w/ some nice high end cut when you need it. It's a keeper for me. I'm a road vet from way back and I gotta say I tried a 1/2 dozen of the new $1300+ USA P 5's and I like my Squier P 5 much better. Also I didnt have to do any set up on it. No tweeks. Came w/ great action and tuned up nicely. Sounded mighty fine on the demo I did with it today too. A very cool bass at any price! Do yourself a favor and check this thing out.

  • a 5 string for the P bass guy!

    As reviewed by Joshua on 8/13/2014

    This bass is the perfect fit for guys like me, a p bass/Fender purist that needs a 5 string for a few songs that looks and feels as quality as the Fender basses in my rack. I owned the American fender 5 but I can't justify $1300 wrapped up in a bass I play for maybe 3 songs a night. This model is not in stores so you don't see many unlike the Jazz models. Fender should put out a Mexican P bass 5 but until then this is the one for me!

  • Great 5 wire for tjhe money

    As reviewed by Glenn on 5/30/2014

    Classic P-bass thump, on the cheap. As another reviewer noted, this bass came ready to play right out of the box. The sunburst finish is surprisingly good considering this bass has a basswood body. I deducted one star simply because this bass suffers from a malady very common to the type: the floppy, sloppy B string. The fault lies in the form factor: a 34" scale bass, especially one that does not have a string-through body, simply will not have enough tension on the B to prevent problems. The best of all worlds for a fiver (IMO) is a neck-through body, strings through body, and 35" scale. Be prepared to pay big $$ for your strings, though. Having said that, you'd have to pay upwards of 4 to 5 times what this bass costs. Summary: not perfect, but the best five you will find for the money. In this price range you'd be hard pressed to find a better buy on a five string bass, or a four, for that matter.
