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!

Good Deal

By Spudster

from Mesa, AZ

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

I've owned a '51 Reissue P-Bass for about ten years and bought this Squier six months ago as a backup and for taking on trips out of town. When I played it I was amazed at how close it sounded to my $1,000 '51. It is lighter than the original by about a half pound, and the neck is thinner -- more like a J-Bass neck. The fretwork is above average and the metallic blue finish (the only choice you get) is nicely done. The hardware is not high grade, but it seems rugged enough and I have had no problems keeping it in tune. The pickup is not as loud and punchy as the one on my Reissue, but tone-wise it sounds very good, with a nice deep fundemental. I would say it has a bit more midrange than the '51, which I think makes it stand out more in front of the mix. This is a good thing, as old style P-Basses don't generally penetrate as well as a Jazz bass or other types. I like this bass alot and I have used it more than I thought I would. It may not have the fit and finish of my '51 Reissue, but for the price you can't go wrong with it. Nice job Squier!

what A wonderful surprise!

By scott griswold

from Cape May, NJ

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.

Nice Bass

By bbop

from Detroit, Mi

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

For the money this bass is a great deal. It has great tone like a P-Bass should. The neck is thick and has a good feel like the old maple necks. The strings need to be changed but other then that it sounds great out of the box. Some people will tell you to watch out for the single coil pick-ups because they are too noisy, but this one is fine. My only complaint is I would like a vintage finish instead of the Lake Placid Blue.

There's just something about this bass.

By Hayden

from Tucson AZ

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

I've been playing guitar now for few years and I thought it was time to get a bass. When I first started looking at possible basses I was looking jazz basses for the most part, But then this bass caught my eye and I knew had to have it. I thought I was gonna be drawn to more versatile bass like something with an active preamp or something. And yet here I was buying a One pickup, one tone knob bass, And I don't regret a thing. This bass is made very well for something in this price range. The first thing you have to judge a budget instrument on is tuning stability. there is no point in buying something that doesn't function. It stays it tune great! And there it passes the test for a beginner player and much more. I don't want to go on forever about this thing, though it may seem like I do. The Point is that it may not be for everybody but you got other models in the series built just as well for the same price, there's one for everybody. And for me there's just something about this bass that I LOVE!

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

I could not believe that this bass was a Squier. The tone was deep and clear. Good for soul and R&B, but I've used it for rock. This was intended to be used as a backup bass to my Fender Jazz bass, but I find myself going to this more often these days. I still can't believe this is a Squier!! Incredible price for this kinda sound. Seriously.

A good addition or fixer-upper

By Colin Webb

from Warner Robins, GA

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

I do not own this bass, but have played it several times. Comparing it to a '51 reissue, the tone is great, though limited to that P-bass thump. It is great if you play alot of Punk, Soul, or Blues (oddly), but lacks the definition for more delicate tones. As far as hardware and finish go, the electronics are adequate, the tuners, jack, and bridge are decent quality, although wanting for sustain. The main gripe, as with so many basses, is the neck. The finish is far overpolished and sticky, impeding movement and playability. The fretboard and neck need to be sanded down and oiled, or replaced outright. If you have money to spare and are looking to add a '51-style to your collection or to start a DIY project, this bass has potential, but I do not recommend it as a primary play/practice bass as-is.

Induldge yourself with this jewel.

By Steve McGilvray

from Mebane, NC

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

I purchased this Bass last year. I have had no problems at all. I am not that picky of an individual, but I do not like the exposed wires at the pickup. I really have enjoyed the sound and look of this piece. People are forever commenting on it's distinct look. It playes like a champ pounding out those low sustaining bass notes. Fairs well while slap bass playing as well.

Great Bass For The $$$

By Tonybass

from Old Bridge,New Jersey

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

I just bought this bass after playing them in the music shops.This bass is as close to a Fender 50's P Bass as you will get.The single coil pickup is pretty decent and delivers the vintage sound that the Fender 50's P Bass did.I don't care for much for the thumbrest,that could have been left off.As for the color,I'm fine with that,I know that the original 51 P basses from that era were not Lake Placid Blue,but if this were in red,that would be my first choice.The neck and light body are just right for me as I've been a Fender man for years.

Surprisingly Fantastic

By Tom Smith

from salt lake city

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

I am blown away by the quality and sound of Squier's classic vibe bass. I picked up the natural finish model because to me it looks better and I love it. The natural finish one has a pine body (original wood used by Leo Fender back in the days...) and between the wood and the hi mass bridge on this baby it sings and sustains forever. The tone quality is great too. I've played the Fender 'Sting' models and even played japanese 51 precisions but in my opinion the pickup on this squier surpasses the more expensive fender models. This pick up sounds brighter, fuller whereas the other fender's sounded more like just a dull thud. I love the vintage tint maple neck-its finished great-no sharp fret ends...smooth and fast. A bargain kids!

No School like Old School

By Tebo

from Upstate, NewYork

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

I bought this Bass a about a year and a half ago. It was gorgeous out of the box and keeps getting better. I replaced the factory strings with flat-wounds 'cause I heard the frets are kind of soft. I doubt it, but boy did it change the tone! It sounds more like a stand-up bass with lows that'll flap your pant legs! I've since purchased a Jaguar bass (tone MONSTER) but I still reach for the 50's Classic Vibe P-bass when I feel like thumpin' out some tunes.
