      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

      Great vintage-style P bass, use mine as backup to an expensive Dingwall.

      Don't misjudge the stock pickup by the way this bass sounds out of the box. I've seen half a dozen of these, and although the action was nicely set up, every single one needed to have height and angle adjustments to get the pickups to Fender spec.

      Once the pickup is properly adjusted, string to string balance, output and tone are spot on for a P-bass. I dropped a Fender pickup in mine, and the difference was too small to worry about.

      As others have commented, the neck width and profile on this bass is perfect for a 5-string P. Roomy enough, but not too much of a handful. Best affordable bass I've ever tried.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

        Love the looks of this bass but this has to be the worst bass setup I have ever seen. I am having to get this thing professionally setup cause the strings are no joke about a mile high off the fret board.....I couldn't find any in the store to buy so I had to order online. I haven't had the best of luck ordering things online from Guitar Center and well this was another one on that list.

          I purchased this Squire Precision 5 because Fender does not offer a 5 String Precision in Sunburst Finish with Maple Fret Board.

          Very pleased with my purchase.

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

            I have many Fender Jazz V's . I was waiting for a five string Precision. The sound is excellent and the action has made it my bass of choice. Another nice surprise was its light compared to most of my Jazz basses. I'm really happy with it.

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

            I'm a 60-year-old, working, pro musician, and custom bass builder. I bought this bass just to add a 5-string to the fleet, without spending a lot of money. I didn't expect it to be as good as it is. Seriously- IMO it looks, plays and sounds just as good as the USA Precision V, but for $1,000 less. Absolutely love this bass!!

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

            I'm a 60-year-old working, pro musician, and custom bass builder. I bought the VM Precision V as an inexpensive 5-string addition to the fleet. When it arrived, I just tuned it up and set the truss rod, and it looks and plays like a USA Standard. Seriously- this bass is so nice that I feel like I bought the American... Only it was 1/5th the price! These Indonesian Squires will become the sought-after classics of the future.

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

              Great bass out of the box, just needed a little intonation setup at the bridge and a string change to sound great.

              Love the neck, really fast and didn't found any dead spots. It was straight so didn't needed any adjustment

              The quality On the finish of the neck and body is superb, fretwork is on par of my American Deluxe JB and the pickup is hot and delivers that classic P-bass tone I was looking for.

              So this is a great sounding bass, at a nice and Affordable price...

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V:

              This is my new "go to" bass. I took it out of the box, tuned it up and it was set up perfectly. No neck or intonation adjustment was required. The action is just right for my playing style. The low B string is not as "floppy" as my previous 5 string. Fit and finish are amazing from end to end. The piece of maple used for the fingerboard has some slight coloration variations that would probably be rejected for a standard U.S. made P-bass, but I don't mind - in fact, I think it adds character and beauty. The only thing I anticipate changing will be replacing the pickups eventually. I would highly recommend this Squier 5 string P-bass.. It's a great value for the money.
