Overview

Squier's Precision Bass is considered by many to be the definitive Rock 'n' Roll bass; truly a workhorse of an instrument. Squier's Vintage Modified Precision Bass offers the stripped-down and straight-ahead tone heard on countless recordings since the dawn of Rock.

The Squier P bass features include a trans-finished soft maple body, 20-fret one-piece maple neck, three-ply Black/White/Black pickguard, thunderous Duncan Designed split single-coil pickups, chrome hardware and machine heads, and four-saddle chrome bridge.

I tried this bass out @ GC through an Ampeg SVT 4PRO and a SVT 410 HLF and it sounded amazing! The bass is very light, has an awesome vintage finish to it, the action is just right, and the neck is fast. This is the exact Punk Rock bass tone that bass players ask for, for less than $300! This thing blows the classic vibe p basses and even some of the cheaper Fender models out of the water. I have always been skeptical about Squier because I owned the Affinity series, but they have been bumping up the quality big time latley! The only reason I give it 4 stars is because I haven't taken it out on the road for a spin.

I saw this bass on the internet and wanted to try it out. I was sadly disappointed with it. The neck is very rough and uncomfortable and the frets are sharp. It was smaller than the neck of most p-basses. I really like the finish, i just wish it was built a little sturdier. Play it before you buy it.

GEM!

By Ivica Lukenda

from Georgia

I just received this guitar, today. It's almost perfect set out of box. It took me 20 minutes of tweaking it to my preferred settings. I can tell you - I had never ever had a bas guitar with lower strings in my life. I could not believe! Finish is flawless. It is real pleasure to play this thing. Sound is great. I have 6 different amps and different cabs. I tried this guitar on all of them and every time it sounds great. Why should anyone buy anything else? This is almost perfect, very light guitar. Get it before they stop making them.

Better tone than the Mexican Fenders.

By Martin Pelayo

from Placerville, Ca

This bass felt great the minute I picked it up. Squier has REALLY stepped their game up. The tone, craftsmanship, price, what else do you want? After taking a half an hour to really give it a good test at guitar center I bought it. It was when I got home and plugged it in when I was able to fully notice the quality, playing on my own amp I noticed immediately that the tone on this guy surpassed my old mexican fender and maybe surpassed my Ibanez 6 string with a active/passive switch and a 3 band EQ. This bass just has a good quality tone, those pickup s get the job done. If your looking for new basses, I would recommend checking out squiers vintage modified line, they probly have something you will love to.

Amazing.

By Collin Getz

from Pen Argyl, PA

I actually got this bass for christmas for my first bass and i dont think ive stopped playing it since. i completely recommend this for beginners and someone looking for a new bass. most of my friends doubted that a squire bass would be any good for the genre of music we would be playing ( pop punk ) we have done tons of blink 182 covers and the bass has PERFECT clarity and sound. When the employee steered me twards getting this bass they were dead on. 10/10

i don't own this bass

By Jack

from Barbourville, KY

although i did try it at Guitar Center. i own the Vintage Mod Jazz Bass and it's right on par with it, but cheaper! debating on buying this come tax return season to go with my Jazz. the look is like no other bass; a weird mix of classic and new. and a bargain! Squier is stepping up it's quality like no other company, it's up there with the big bother Fender's products. definately a buy for an introductory bassist or even someone 10 years into the game.

Fantastic bass!

By Andrew

from San Antonio, TX

I've only been playing for a year and started with an Affinity P bass and looked to upgrade. I played the vintage mod j bass and was impressed then soon found out that this bass just recently came out. Plugged up into a Mark bass amp, and tested it out. The difference in the wood is immediately apparent from the Affinity to this piece. The sound is a lot warmer and deeper in comparison. Standard P bass tone it seems, the standard for a lot of rock but with the sound you can only get through maple wood. As is for every new bass ya gotta set it up, but even after a handful of my own set ups it seems that the D and G strings are quite lower in volume compared to the E and A. (Though this might be attributed to me setting up using my Rumble 15 over my Rumble 150. The bigger one is at a friends house). It seems that the strings can't stay perfectly over the poles of the pickups, perhaps attributed to the bridge which I hope to upgrade to some full contact hardware soon. It's also a good bit heavier than my Affinity, but not an issue for myself. But aside from these small gripes, I'm extremely happy and satisfied with this bass. Have had it for 3, maybe 4 months now and have it set up with some Addarios and it sounds absolutely amazing. Give this bass a chance despite the namesake. It'll definitely be worth the money.
