Overview

The Squier Classic Vibe Precision Bass '50s delivers a unique playing experience both in terms of sound and feel. This larger neck and wider string spacing (1.65") of the P Bass promote strong pocket playing with a warm, earthy tone that is supportive and inviting. And you can have the unique voice of the Squier Classic Vibe Bass in your electric bass arsenal at an amazing price.

The beautiful finish over a basswood body is an eye catcher for sure, while its custom 'original' single coil Alnico V pickup delivers that old school, '50s P Bass tone. Open gear tuning machines sit atop a gloss 20-fret maple neck, both solid and stable. Modern refinements such as the flatter 9-1/2" radius and HiMass 4 saddle bridge make this bass more user friendly in terms of setup and playability. A winner with killer looks and a unique voice!

Classic Vibe!
Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and 'vibe'. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct - but rather imparting the 'vibe' of a classic Fender design. Each with distinctive feature set combinations - all adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value -Classic Vibe!

        Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Precision '50s Bass Guitar:

        This is a very solid bass and it has a very solid old school type tone just as you would suspect. But be aware it has a somewhat chunky neck to it (depth) which means you won't be quite as fast as you might.
        Also a bit on the heavy side overall, not super heavy.

        Excellent Bass. I had to sand down the gloss on the neck for my own personal liking but other than that it is one of the best basses from Squier.

            Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Precision '50s Bass Guitar:

            This is a fantastic instrument. Great neck, nice finish on body, solid feeling pots, great tone. Many reviewers have stated that they have replaced the stock pickup, but I think it sounds just fine. All in all, that's just a preference thing and this bass has it's own voice that I really like. The only knock is that mine arrived with a very poor setup - not even in the ballpark. While I am perfectly capable of setting up my own instruments, I think that #1, this says loud and clear from the manufacturer "we don't really care that much", and #2, aside from the poor first impression, the purchaser is left hoping and wondering if the instrument will end playing nicely instead of just enjoying playing it. So, I say to Fender/Squire: show a little pride in workmanship, this instrument is too nice to be slapped together in such a careless way. I realize, many buyers DID get their bass with a decent setup, but unfortunately, that was not my experience.
            My rating AFTER setting it up with new strings: 4.5

              I love it. Played well straight out of the box. I had my tech tweak the neck and bridge and it is filling the spot that my '53P left when we parted ways. Now that was a sad day, but the hole that it left is whole again. YEAH BABY

                  Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Precision '50s Bass Guitar:

                  I received the butterscotch classic vibe a week ago and it was absolutely beautiful. I have always wanted a tele style p bass though I am a jazz bass and Mike Lull guy. I took the bass to my tech, Tom Hawk who was very impressed who noted that the neck was hard rock maple, one piece, the same as on the USA fender p basses. The tone is wonderful. The only upgrade I will add is a Schaller Roller bridge so I can manipulate the string spacing. This bass has wonderful tone. You will be very, very surprised.

                    Love the look! Had some high frets to take care of which was the cause of some fret buzz, pickup was a bit noisy, so I put some insulated paint in the cavity and also it needed a filler in the back of the pickup so I could raise it to proper height! Still worth buying because these imperfection are very fixable!
