LOVE this bass !!!!!

Comments about Squier Standard P Bass Special 4-String Bass Guitar:

Ordered the gray/pewter Squier P-Bass special, played it for one day and then ordered 2 more of them, one is the all black w/ chrome pickguard, the other, the black matalic finish,, the gray/pewter finish is my favorite though. These bass's are the best of both worlds with the P-bass body and Jazz neck and the Jazz and P pickups. There very light, play and sound great, cant say anything negitive about these bass's, like I said, I like em so much I bought 3 of them. They even took well to my BEAD tuning/strings,, had to file the nut on each bass just a tad so the BEAD strings would fit. On a side note,, once you go BEAD you'll never go back to EADG,, been doing that with all my 4 string bass's for years and never looked back. Cheers Davyo

Great for beginners

By Punkcabaretisfreedom

Comments about Squier Standard P Bass Special 4-String Bass Guitar:

Alright, so, if you are looking for a fairly simple bass or want a nice fender lookalike, I recommend it. It's got a nice dependable tone, but not very punchy at all. If you are into playing dirty, grungy punk, like me, this is a good starter.

I love bargains

Comments about Squier Standard P Bass Special 4-String Bass Guitar:

I don't actually love bargains because they usually aren't. This Bass is. I got a perfectly set up black off the floor for 200 and it is simply incredible for my purposes -- a guitarist who will play bass in a band that's not my own rather than sit at home. Whether it's a Custom shop or made in China -- play as many as you can and then buy the one that feels best and play it until the wood shows.

I love this bass!

By korz

Comments about Squier Standard P Bass Special 4-String Bass Guitar:

I've always preferred the Precision Bass size and shape, but have medium-sized hands, so I prefer the slimmer, Jazz Bass neck. This bass has the best of both worlds: P-bass body, J-bass neck, and both P and J pickups. I own two of these and both came nearly perfectly set up. I did lower the strings just a bit on one of them, but other than that, both were ready to play right out of the box. The pickups are very good for the price the P pickups have no hum (they cancel each other's hum). The J pickup adds a little hum because it's a single coil. One great feature of this bass is that it has one volume for the P pickups and one for the J pickup. I usually turn up the P pickups full and then blend in a little J, which is wired out-of-phase, so adding in the J pickup adds a little Strat-like quack, which I really like. It helps the bass cut through an be heard. The fit and finish of this bass are equivalent to basses costing twice as much. My only regrets are that it does not come with a maple fretboard as an option and I would prefer a humbucking J pickup, like the American P-Bass Deluxe, but for this price, you absolutely cannot buy a better value in a bass.
