Awesome Bass!!

By Scott C

from Roseville, CA

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

First of all, it could say "Fender" rather than "Squire by Fender" on the headstock of this bass...this is a amazing quality instrument, whatever it says; Squires have really come a long way, for sure. Out of the box this bass was as good as it gets for a new instrument, in fact it was flawless. Fit and finish were perfect, set up was spot on, the action nice and low. All I needed to do was tune up and play. The sound through my Ampeg BA115 HP was awesome; definitely that classic P bass tone. Also, I found the neck on this bass very comfortable and easy to play. All in all you get a really good quality P bass for a relatively low price point...a bass that I think is quite worthy of it's amazing name-sake.

GREAT BUY

By NICHOLAS YORDON

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

GREAT AWESOME bass!it could say fender on it,but dont let the squier name fool you.With the squier name it makes it affordable because if it said fender it'd be a 900 dollar instrument without a question.Has A gret vintage rod worn sound and feel.The best thing is its brand new and it comes like that.It's my 1st maple neck bass and all i got to say is that i'll never ever get anything else but maple.Has amazing slap and pop sound to it.The tug bar is great for playing pick or even playing with your fingers.It has brass keys on the bridge which makes for a clear sound.I've owned atleast 15 bass's in my life any where from Ibanez to music man.This bass is by far the best sounding and feeling bass i've owned.Matt freeman is my favorite bass player so when i ordered this bass i didnt play it yet.Iwas a bit nervous that i wouldnt like it.That all ended to the 1st time i plugged it in.I ordered the offset white,and now i'm about to order the black one.It's the perfect bass at a great affordable price

What More Could You Want?

By William Gray

from Portland, OR

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

I've been playing my Matt Freeman model for almost a year and I couldn't be happier. Does it sound and play as good as my American Deluxe P-bass? Of course not. But it's great for what it is. It plays great, sounds very good, and with a good amp is totally gig-worthy. Its cheaper than a Fender Standard P-Bass and every bit as good. As I said, what more could you want?

Bad setup out of the box

By Paul Taite

from New York City

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

So I was pretty excited to get this bass. I ordered online and as soon as I got it home I noticed some serious buzzing on the 5th - 7th fret on the A string. It looked like the factory had already tried to compensate for this as the string height of that particular A string was setup way higher than the other strings. So I'm going to see if I can take this back to guitar center to get this properly setup or just return it. Really disappointed, looks great though.

Absolutely Amazing !

By JARED

from New Jersey

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

Ordered this bass in Vintage White / Maple and had it sent to my local store. When it arrived it was almost perfect right out of the box. Fit and finish are top quality. The Guitar Tech was more than happy to check the set up before I left. Thats Great customer service. That night I gigged with the bass and was totally blown away. I know it gets old hearing it over and over but this bass played and sounded better than most basses I have owned at 2 to 3 times the price. Great sound and very playable. I'm ecstatic that I have a bass of this quality and I got it for a great price too. Can't say enough good things about this bass. It's a winner and after the way it performed I'm looking forward to many more gigs with this as my new primary bass.

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

Bought this used at my local GC. Fantastic pbass; great setup and playability. Compared it to a used American pbass at a local shop and, well, there is no comparison. This instrument is just better. If you find a used one, buy it. Quality, quality, quality. Thanks, GC.

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

Very impressed with the fit and finish on this bass. The neck is dressed better than some MIM Fenders that I have played in the store! The vintage white body and the tinted neck look great!

Awsome bass

By NICHOLAS YORDON

from watertown

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

I agree,this bass could say fender on it. It's all Fender with a squier name but dont let that fool you. I've owned ibanez's music mans,and other squiers.This bass exceeds them all by far and it's an affordable price.If it said fender on it,it would be an $800 instrument.It has a road worn vintage sound and feel to it out of the box,and what makes it better is it's brand new!the picture of it is cool,but once you see in person how beautiful it is and how it sounds,you'll know you bought the right thing.The maple neck with a heavy shiny lacker on it is Sick! if your second guessing on buying this bass don't. Buy it! It rips!!

Really Good Bass!

By Richard

from Kalamazoo, MI

Comments about Squier Matt Freeman Precision Bass Guitar:

I ordered this bass online after much debate and reading reviews, and once I got it I haven't regretted it since. It's such a slick bass, not only in design but in sound as well, and I couldn't be happier about it! (also replaced the factory strings with DR Black Beauties and it's just awesome)
