Overview

The Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB has the classic '70s-era Tele bass design, complete with thumping low-end tone from the large, Fender-designed humbucking pickup in the neck position. Also has the traditional maple neck with distinctive Tele bass headstock and vintage-style open-back tuners. A gorgeous sunburst finish over the ash veneer top on a slab basswood body and accurate pickguard shape complete the vintage vibe. Other features include a string-through design dual brass-saddle bridge and two-knob pickup control circuit with volume and tone pots.

Players from beginner to intermediate and beyond have done it for years—whether installing hotter pickups, alternate pickguards, or just plain personalizing their instruments with fancy paint jobs, modified means adding new twists to a familiar design.

Squier Tele Bass

By E H

from Bay, OH

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

This is a really good bass for the money. I like pretty much everything, the finsh/pickguard are cool and so is the chrome humbucker. Sounds really rich. Like a cheeseburger. Does harmonics extremely well. My only complaint is the little buzz when the tone is all the way up. Otherwise, just great.

Better than the original!

By Randy Doolittle Theshillz.com

from San Francisco, California.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

I owned a 1972 Telecaster Bass new as a teenager. I loved it, but it was very heavy and the pickup was kind of muddy. If you can get over the fact that it is a squier( I have) and you want a deep thundering bass sound, this is it. Cool retro style. The neck is incredible. Don't listen to the cry baby reviews. Man up and test drive a real quality, value bass.

No 5th Star, but...

By P. J. McK.

from St.Marys, GA

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

The 1st real Fender bass that I ever played was a Fender Telecaster Bass. That was in the summer of 1972, which was before a lot of the parents of those who read these reviews were even allowed to go out on dates. One afternoon, while browsing at the Guitar Center in Jacksonville, I found a Squire Telecaster Bass hanging off a rack, and gave in to the urge to try it out. Wow! What a great axe! It's just like the old Fender Telecaster Bass from the late 1960's to the 1970's. The action was really great and the sound was nice. If I had room for another electric basses, I would've added the Squire Telecaster to my collection (which already includes two Squire basses and one Squire guitar). In short, I recommend the Squire Telecaster Bass.

loud, bright, simple

By Billiam5billion

from H-town, Texas

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

I've been playing this bass for 2 years, through three different amps, and there's nothing like it for the price. It takes very well to effects and stays in tune like a champ. My band practices twice a week and I only tune it once every OTHER week. It's heavy, with a big neck and lots of body, so maybe you little guys would be better off with a jazz bass, but for me, there's nothing better than the P-bass. Highly recommendable especially for lots of gigs. Tough as nails.

Bass sound with true round tone

By MARCOS

from Ft. Stockton, Texas

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

This bass is extremely nice to record because it projects better than a Jazz or Precision. It may need a little more treble,but for the money, you can't go wrong. The round tone holds the groove with solid intonation. Electronics are very simple and could be hot rodded with a bridge pick up, preferably a humbucking with adjustable poles like a Dimarzio. Squier basses are the best buy for any playing situatiion, especially this model.

amazing for the price

By mk in cleveland

from Ohio

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

I was looking for something with a sound opposite of my ibanez SR900, just fat, mellow, and rich, and I'm glad I picked this bass. The humbucker provides a great thick tone, and you can get a decent range from the tone control. Out of the box the action and intonation were great, hardly needed to be adjusted. The neck plays great, it doesn't have that "sticky" feel that some guitars have. Other than that, the sound will just blow you away. Be sure to get a wide strap, it's just as heavy as the Fender.

Great bass for the value

By DuWayne of the Poaching Poets

from Queen Creek, AZ

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

I purchased this bass in April. I love the vintage look. I also love the tones the bass gave, very deep and rich which blended well with my band's music. We played a small gig and everyone was impressed by the sounds that came out of the bass. I recommend this bass for anyone who's on a budget and is looking for quality, I know I was. Overall this is a fanastic bass and is my first choice to use in any gig.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB:

Just took delivery and was shocked how well this thing played out of the box! Wish I had one back in High School Jazz Band in 1977. Just performed at 4th of July party through a SVT and the thing just rocked. Nothing like it for this price out there!
