This bass seems like an honest effort on the parts of FMC, but... it falls short of Fender quality and simples stagnates in the "squier" department. This bass plays like a Squier, that is to say: weak string tension, poor fret work and a very awkward feeling neck. The pickup is even worse, plugging in, I expected to hear the boom and clack of the Duncan 1/4lbs pickup, it sounded more like a doubley wound Squier pickup (which isn't really that bad, just not what I was expecting). This bass, in all honesty, will not make you sound like Pete Wentz unless you replace the pickup with a real Duncan SPB-3, put a Leo Quan bridge on it and get an Ampeg SVT stack to play through... be warned.

This thing is a toy, the only reason to ever buy it is just to have the novelty of the design. You're better off buying a regular Squier P-bass, because at least then you'll be able to control the tone, which is the single most important thing in an instrument. If it doesn't sound good for the song you're playing, there's not changing it. Just don't buy this.

Finally, we get a piece of Pete!!!!

By jcp42877

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

Finally, after waiting so long, we get a Pete Wentz Sig. Bass. The look is phenomenal and the features outstanding! With the duncan Split-coil pickup, you're sure to get the sound Pete gets eveyrtime he performs. Not to mention a beautiful red pearloid pickguard and his clandestine bat logo to go along with it. I believe this bass is better than most tohers because 1: it has a design that shows it truly is custom and unique(some other artist models look plain-jain) and 2: The price is great considering Squier is branch off of Fender, so basically you're getting an excellent bass with Fender's standards for like $250 cheaper. all in all, this bass deserves 5 stars!

Who wants to sound like Pete except Pete?

By Black Machine

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I got this bass on the premise that the advertised "punk growl" might work for my new band. Well, first off all, it's so light that when I pulled it out of the box it nearly got thrown over my shoulder and out my office window. Secondly, four strings make me feel like I'm wearing no pants, as does only one knob. Thirdly, it turns out my measley 6-string Cirrus has more than enough growl to toss that P-Bass into the middle of next week.

Pete Wentz P Bass

By Adam

from Michigan

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I recently bought this bass about two weeks ago. I had some doubts hearing some reviews of people. But I decided i mine as well see for myself. So i went to guitarcenter and checked it out. Turns out it has a great sound and feel. Light weight and being a beginner, its nice to learn on. Stays in tune well and has a shweet design. All in all its a Great Bass, and for the price you cant beat it. So my advice is to go check it out yourself because only thing that matters is what you like. By the way make sure you have a rag or clothe because being a black bass itll be easy to see finger prints and smudges. Go Check It Out!!

Good beginner bass

By Jesper Hagberg

from Bor��'s

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I've owned and played a Pete Wentz signature bass for 1 and a half years now. and i must say that i really hate the graphic thats on it. It makes you look stupid if you're not 10 years old. But other then that this bass a a great starting bass! easy to play, sounds quite good but not as good as the Fenders. The lack of a tone knob started to bother me after about a year, but it should not be a problem for one who has just started playing.

so your looking for a bass, huh?

By Lacey

from Los Angeles

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

i will admit, bass is a relatively new instrument for me. i mainly play electric guitar. so my friend got this for me as a gift. he knows that im a big fan of the "old" fall out boy. as far as sound goes, its ok. not the best that you can get, but surely not the worst. the single knob is kinda annoying, considering that my guitars have 3. i sometimes feel a little funny playing this infront of people. it depends on who your playing to, but a lot of people dont take me as seriously as id like because they see the Pete Wentz design. they kinda judge me and my art ngatively because they see the bat logo and instantly think "sellouts". i think that this bass is best for practice. it doesnt cost a lot, it sounds decent, and it is a cool logo, you must admit. long story short. get it if you like fob and want a good practice bass on a smaller budget. if your budget is as big as Pete's mouth, then id say you could afford better, and better you should get. i hope ive helped. now run along and buy yourself a bass :]

Copy

By Mark hoppus

from WA

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

To me personally this looks like a copy of the mark hoppus bass from blink 182. they both have the singl volume nob and the same fender p bass look. personally i have been wanting a mark hoppus bass for the looks because i already have a really great bass. and this looks like a copy of it too me so thats all that really appeals to me about it

He uses one?

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

Wow. I would never guess that Pete Wentz used a Squier P-Bass. My brother has a normal P-Bass, and I've played it- it's fair, but no different from this, other than some slight cosmetics. With thirty bucks and some knowledge of guitar parts sights, one could easily make this one (that's probably how Pete did it). A SQUIER? Now that's new.

No Way

By Jeremy

from Omaha, NE

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

The design: It might be cool to some people, particularly Fallout Boy fans, so if you're into playing bass covers and putting them on YouTube, then this bass might be right up your alley. However, the design does not appeal to me. The feel: One word... Plastic. That's really what it feels like from the head all the way down to the bridge. If you're looking for something that feels heavy in your hands and that has quality wood and finish, then look elsewhere. Of course, some people do tend to like a more lightweight and plastic-ish feel. This is obviously a matter of opinion. The sound: By far the most important part. Unfortunately, when making this bass, Squier pretty much overlooked it completely. It's obvious that Pete was going for a Mark Hoppus kind of thing with no tone knob, which is totally okay. Of course, it would have been nice if there was actually any tone to start out with. Even with fresh strings on, this is one of the most bland basses I've ever played. Quality: I don't own this bass, but rather, I played it at a friends house through an Acoustic B100 amp (average quality amp) for about 45 minutes. It was pretty new, so I can't say how badly it depreciates over time, but it was relatively well put together, which is the one positive I found with this piece of equipment. My advice would be (if your looking for an inexpensive p-bass) spend the extra 50 bucks and go for a squier 60's classic vibe p-bass. A MUCH better guitar for only a little bit extra.

couldn't love this bass anymore

By blackXrozeXbassist

from mesa,az

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

i got this bass about a year ago and I've never been disappointed by it. This bass has good power and sound to it, which is saying something since my amp is only 20 watts. As i grow as a bassist this bass has grown right with me...it has never slowed me down and the sound fits in nicely with any genre i play. it is definitely a very reliable bass, I've never had problems with it and it even stays in tune for a long time. i don't know if it'll help knowing but i use an Acoustic B20 20 watt bass guitar amp.

Great Bass

By George

from orlando, florida

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

The pete wetnz squier p-bass is a great bass, the neck feel is amazing, the seymor duncan pickups are super rad, you dont need the tone control with those amazing pickups. the sound you get from the bass is awsome, its worth the price and its squier but you feel like playing a fender. the graphics are rad, when you get it out of your case everyone goes wooow and as soon as you plug it the sound is amazing! great bass i recommended for starters and for musicians that play punk rock/emo/ etc its a great bass for a great price.

WASTE

By Player

from chi,IL

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

A regular squier p-bass wayy better cause it has a tone knob and cheaper. The only reason some body should get this is if they are obsessed with pete wentz and have too much money than they know what to do with.

Not Bad

By Pat

from Solon, oh

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I just played this bass a couple days ago for about an hour. I was actually kind of impressed by it. Granted this is a Mark Hoppus bass. The neck felt real nice, good to slide with and hammer with. I would reccomend this bass if you like Pete Wentz and want a collectors item, or just a bass to screw around with. I would not play this bass live- straight up recording and at home play. Good for the price!

Pete Wentz Bass

By Adam

from Michigan

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

This is a great quality bass. I havent been a bassist for very long(2 Months) and I enjoy this guitar as much as when I first got it. Good quality wood, Fair factory strings, stays in tune very well. Great any range bass. Will last a long time and you'll enjoy for a long time too.Make sure you have a rag, being a mostly black bass it smudges easily. Other than that its a Terrific Bass

It's pretty sweet

By Ryan

from San Ramon,California

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

This bass is pretty sweet. I like how it has a one of a kind look. The only bad thing is that it only has one knob. I wish it had tone control atleast. But all in all it's a pretty good bass.

Who is Peter Wentz?

By P.J.McK.

from St.Marys, GA

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I like Fender and Squire basses and guitars. My questions are: Why would anyone want an electric bass that does not have a tone control? What makes the name of Peter Wentz a reputable endorsement for an instrument? Most serious and respected bassists who know music and have professional-level skills would name, as bassists worthy of emulation, such legendary musicians as: Ray Brown (legendary upright bassist and author of a great bass method), Jack Bruce (Cream), Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane), Stanley Clark (Chick Corea & Return to Forever), John Entwistle (the Who), James Jamerson (Motown session bassist), Carol Kay (session bassist and author of reputable bass methods), Paul McCartney (the Beatle), Joe Osborn (legendary session bassist), Jaco Pastorius (solo artist), Noel Redding (the Jimi Hendrix Experience), Sting (the Police), Chris Squire (Yes), Bill Wyman (the Rolling Stones), along with countless others. Anyone who aspires to be a punk bass player is aiming low.

Wentz bass

By Gerard Watts

from CApe Cod, MA

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I don't know who Pete Wentz is, or care. I got a gig playing surf music and needed a P-Bass quick - and I needed an affordable one too. I found this one used on guitarcenter.com and since I love maple fretboards, decided to try her out. Darn glad I did too. I don't really care about the lack of a tone control, since I put flatwounds on her immediately. Any adjustments I need to make can be done with my fingers or at my amp. Nice bass, love the maple fingerboard, added bridge and pickup covers and she looks and sounds great. Solid, sturdy, reliable, and nothing to break. A good, solid, reliable bass guitar, what's not too like?
