Overview

The Duncan designed split single-coil pickups with alnico magnets carve out that distinctive punk growl you want.

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.

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?

Best bass I have ever owned

By Freddy Dame Jr

from Kittery, ME

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I have been playing bass for over 26 years. I have to say that the Sqiuer Pete Wentz bass is the best bass that I have ever bought and have played. I laugh at those who make jokes about how light this bass is. These people must not play for long periods of time, because having a light weighted bass like this one makes it easier to keep the energy up for a great performance level! As for the complaint of only having volume knob and nothing else is ridiculous! Buy this bass, it is a sweet bass and you'll never be disappointed!

Great bass for the price

By Skip-DXer

from South Texas

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

Great value for a bass that's quality made. All levels of playing experience will love Squier's quality. I give this bass two thumbs up
The bass I got has nice low action, light and comfy. one P- style pick up with a volume, people gripe about no tone knob, but you can always adjust the tone at the amp (afterall that's what all the knobs on the amp are for). Maple neck, maple fretboard is nice to look at and play
I have over 20 years of playing experience. i bought this guitar for my daughter since she's a Wentz fan, and she wanted to learn to play. I was blown away by Squier's quality. Squier makes some really good instruments that someone from beginner to Pro could play on. I saw a you-tube vid of Pete Wentz saying these bases are soo good that he uses them in the studio as well as for live performance. That says alot to me because Pete can afford to play on way more expensive basses. Looks way better in person the red pickguard on black really makes it pop. I dont care for the bat heart too much, but It's part of the Wentz theme.

For Modern Rock ONLY

By Zacky Vengeance

from NJ

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

Although I play guitar for my band, I also play a little bass. I have been envying this Pete Wentz bass for awhile, so I bought it. It actually turned out to be my perfect bass. Since I am primarily a post-hardcore artist, it suits my needs perfectly. There's no hassle getting that trebly sound found primarily found in modern rock (evident with the absence of tone knob) and hot looks. If you play only rock and no other genre, then this bass could suit you perfectly. But if you play genres such as jazz, then I wouldn't recommend it. Quality and its features although are a downside. My bass came shipped with a tuning alike to Drop Q haha. So that had to be changed. After doing this minor change however, it can stay in tune for a good amount of days. I haven't really sent it into a workshop to get it fixed, but likely I will since tuning guitars are a huge hassle.

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.

Great Bass

By Davis-K4L8-

from Ashland, KY

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

This Is A Great Bass! I got this bass as a Christmas Present in 2009 and have been playing it for over a year. Great Sound, tone, and very good looking. This year I replaced the Duncan Pickups with EMG-P Active P Bass Pickups and it is amazing!

Not Bad.......

By MaverickE.

from canada

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I got this as a gift from my parents. This is my first bass, so I wasn't looking for something amazing, just something to play around with. I am a pretty big fan of fall out boy and Pete Wentz, so I thought I would give this one a try. This bass was a pleasant surprise. I've played other squiers, and the quality on the ones I playing was pretty bad. This is was the first thing I noticed. It is actually very good quality for a squier. Of course, the quality isn't on par with actual Fenders, but it is very close. The tone is very 1-dimentional, as other people have said, but it's okay. I don't walking over to a amp and messing with the settings, but that does bother some people. The aesthetics are very cool. Keep in mind that the bat heart design is the logo of a actual company that Pete wentz owns, and it is really pops out. The pickguard also stands out a lot. The jazz neck is a joy to play. All in all, this is a great bass FOR BEGINNERS. I don't reccomend that a expert player would be buying this bass anyway, as it is a squier. So don't expect too much, because squiers are meant to be for for beginners, and this bass is perfect for just that.

Way too creamy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I got this bass expecting a really punchy pokey sound but the tone was just really creamy and crunchy. Maybe it'd be good for playing deathgrind but it just can't recreate that classic pop punk tone unless you take out the precision pickup and put a jazz one in its place.Also, some of the frets popped off during a show and somebody took the tuning knobs off so that was a pain to replace. They should have made them a bit more secure against burglars in this crazy world.

Not So Much Punk

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

A great bass with simple features, but I would only consider investing if you are certain in recreating Pete's sound.
