Overview

Squier proudly presents its first-ever fretless Precision Bass model, the sleek Vintage Modified Precision Bass Fretless.

Other features include a maple neck with "modern C" profile, tortoiseshell pickguard, two "dome"-style control knobs (master volume, master tone), vintage-style bridge with four single-groove saddles, and vintage-style tuners. Available in Three-color Sunburst.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Precision Bass:

    I checked this bass out at a local Portland, Oregon music store. One of the sales persons who knew me and my preference asked me to try this bass. At first I noticed how light it was, especially for a Precision. Then I plugged it in and started playing it - it did not take very long to get sucked into this bass. The round-wound strings along with the pickup and light resonant body gave this bass guitar a personality of it's own. I read the other reviews for this bass and somebody mentioned that you never put round wound strings on a fretless bass, well... that is a personal preference. I've always put round wound strings on ALL of my fretless basses, a decision I have never regretted and love the sound and vibe that I get, besides the Ebonol fingerboard can handle just about anything you can throw at it. Anyway, to sum it up: this bass - it's a great bass at a reasonable price, but don't treat it like a normal Precision because it's not. It beckons and calls for new and uncharted sonic territory.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Precision Bass:

    One of the only Fender family of basses that played really well out of the box. Only negative is the lousy round wound strings. Someone at Fender should know by now that you don't use round wound strings on fretless instruments. Other than that, I was amazed at the sound, the playability, and the fit and finish of this bass. I did just a very minor lowering of the strings to suit my style of playing and have used it in 4 live performances without a problem.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Precision Bass:

      First fretless bass I have purchased, I was not disappointed. I own several other guitars including a six-string bass, but this Squier is by far the most fun to play. Maybe the neatest aspect is the warm natural fuzz you get when the pad of your fingertip partially mutes the string. But despite the fingertip effect, the instrument has great sustain and a sharp crisp sound. Sliding without the frets' annoying perfect pitch syndrome is awesome, but be careful-- I find myself wanting to overdo. Guitar center shipped it to my home, so there was no store setup. Easily done, though. Just a slight truss rod loosening (to get a little of the bow out of the neck) and a fine adjustment to the bridge made this one easy to play with minimum effort. Intonation is not so precise as a fretted bass would be, so learning to put your fingers right on top of the fret "reminders" takes time. Well done, Squier!

      Horrible craftsmanship

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Precision Bass:

          I was very excited when I saw this bass and I ordered one immediately. When it arrived, I was floored by how bad the construction was. Dried glue in various places, scratches on the fretboard (which was a shiny black, almost plastic), and a pickguard that looked like very, very cheap imitation tortise shell (it looks better in the picture). It could be that I just got a dud, but this never, ever should have left the Fender factory. I'm not a prima donna when it comes to instuments. This one was just absolutley horrible.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Precision Bass:

          Ok, I have had this bass 3 months now,and I love it. This is a "Solid Bass," good sound (electronics time tested and reliable), the edonol fretboard is in great shape, neck is strait and true, light weight, and way fun to play. I still think a stronger pickup and high mass bridge would be cool, but is not needed to get that clasic fretless sound (it's all in the hands man, and takes sometime in the woodshed). All I have done to mine is add bridge and pickup covers (very old school cool), new strings (black beauties lights), and strap locks. Just set it up the way you like it and have fun. I would put this bass up against others that cost way more and I would still pick this bass! B-)

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Precision Bass:

          Great bass for the price. Keeps true to the fretless P-bass sound, and I liked it better that the J-bass version. Could use some better pickups (Seymour Duncan; Quarter Pound is a good choice), to get more mid scoop. Also, a high mass bridge (BA II) would be good too, but I am absented with finding a better sound. I an not sure about the ebanal fingerboard yet, but we will see. All in all I am very happy! Feel the thump! :-)
