Great Sounding Bass!

By Dwight Jenkins

from Douglasville, GA

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

I have been reading and looking for this bass for over a month before it was released at the store. I was on the mailing list when the bass was available. I visited 3 local stores and none of them have arrived. I took a chance and ordered it from online. It arrived in 4 days. Beautiful looking bass! I also purchased Ampeg BA108 to go with this and this bass is just outstanding with this amp. I took bass to my local store for minor adjustment and to check the setup, nothing major could have done myself. The PJ combination gives the bass a deep rich sound or you can play the Jazz pickup or just Precision. I am very happy with this purchase and you will love it too.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

    Hi All. I'm a 34-year guitar hobbyist who wanted to learn some bass, so picked this up for the price, look and feel. It's very light and sounded good in the store. Very nice neck, good bridge (though a couple of my bridge screws were over-tightened and bore out, so I had to fill holes and re-set.) I ordered the sunburst online. It had some loose stuff in the cavity shaking around, but worked fine. After a week or so, the neck pickup stopped working. I planned on upgrading the pickups anyway, so removed the pickguard and found a free-floating red wire and some BB-sized solder pellets. I'm not sure to what they went, because it was a disconnected white wire that caused the pup failure. So, knowing I'd voided my warranty with novice tinkering, I bought a Fender brown tortoise shell guard, Custom P-Bass pup and Noiseless J-Bass pup, then had the tech replace the middle volume with a blender knob. Also put on some LaBella Deep Talkin' Bass flatwounds. Now she's quite killer, but if you're keeping score, I added a few hundred bucks to the total cost. Still a tad cheaper than the step-up Mexican Fender basses, but there are lots of other better basses in that next price level, the LTD B-4E comes to mind. One last note, the Squire is too small for the Fender hard case I bought for her, so needs some cloth padding on the sides.

    Unbelievable quality for this price!

    By Jeffrey

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

    Great playing and sounding bass. Typical PJ...the neck P pickup is louder than the bridge J pickup. But blending the two gives a lot more tone options over a regular P bass. The neck feels great, and the bass is very light. I was amazed at the quality of the build on this bass. I was prepared to do a lot of setup work when it arrived, but did not have to adjust anything. Nut, string height (including radius), and intonation were perfect. The neck was totally straight with no buzz, and the fret ends were all smooth and prepped, no file needed. The quality you can get in a bass for under $300 these days is amazing.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

    I wanted an inexpensive, yet beautiful PJ bass and hoed that this fit the bill. The first one that I ordered sounded great, played well, but had a 5 inch crack in the top.

    A replacement was ordered, it arrived with 2 cracks around the neck pocket.

    I have not given up, I ordered a 3rd... The 77 Vintsge Modified in 3 Tone Sunburst.

    I loved the tone and look just not impressed with the quality control.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

      In my earlier review I forgot to mention how it's so nice to get the P/J pickup combation with out spending 800 or more for it with fender on the headstock. After reading the other reviews those few problems are even worse with actual fender. I even bought a mim p bass and it didn't play any better. In fact I sent it back cause for 600 I expected better but as I said before you just can't beat the vintage modified squier. Whether it's a bass or a guitar. I have bought and compared them side bye side to the more expensive fender and it's not worth it just for the sticker on the headstock. Thanks and enjoy .

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

        I found that I just couldn't get a better bass. I have always been a fender guy. The only difference is the name on the headstock and the price. A fender is twice the price and is not any better. I always change the pickups anyway so I think it's the exact same bass for half the price. Don't get me wrong the affinity series is cheap but the vintage modified is great. Same as a fender, save some money in fact use the money to buy a vintage modified strat which is just as good as any fender also.
