OVERVIEW

A classic reimagined.

The Classic Vibe Precision Bass '70s delivers the true Precision Bass experience. Huge tone roars from its traditional split-single-coil pickup. The contoured basswood body, is familiar and comfortable, and the vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has 20 vintage-style frets with block inlays and a modern 9.5" radius.

It is a powerful '70s-style model that evokes the instrument's look and vibe from that musically adventurous era. The smartly alluring all-black look of the Classic Vibe Precision Bass '70s extends to the pickguard, the finger rest and, in a stylish touch, the binding and block inlays on the maple fingerboard. The split-single-coil pickup delivers classic Precision muscle, and the Hi-Mass bridge with brass "barrel" saddles keeps intonation rock solid-all with terrific Squier value.

    Comments about Squier Classic Vibe '70s Precision Bass:

    First a little background, my main bass has been a 90's Peavey Foundation, but I've owned several additional basses over the past 16 years. After previously owning an Epiphone Thunderbird and realizing that they were nothing but poor quality, licensed knock-offs, I was very skeptical about buying a Squier. I feared it would be a low quality Fender knock-off. However, I could not find a single bad review for this bass. It looks fantastic, and I really wanted a traditional p-bass sound, so I ordered one. I was blown away by the sound quality and playability of this bass! It plays better than the overly expensive Modulus bass that I used to own! The sound is exactly what I was looking for, classic precision bass tone! Of course that's partially due to the fact that it comes with Fender Pure Nickel strings on it. This bass does not disappoint! It's got the looks, tone, and playability of a much more expensive instrument. It's worth every penny!

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe '70s Precision Bass:

      Compared to the Fender American Standard P-bass that I've owned, this one is surprisingly close. The tone is very good, the looks are better in my opinion. This gloss black, with gloss, maple, block inlay is gorgeous!!
      I'm loving this bass. It did need an initial setup to get the intonation and lower the string height to my liking, but now it is my go to bass for that p-bass, simplicity and warm tone.

        This bass is built very well. The action and fret work is top notch and the pickups have a warm tone. Check one out for yourself.

          Comments about Squier Classic Vibe '70s Precision Bass:

          I have been playing bass for 28 years and the quality of this bass is every bit as good as any fender I've played. Don't let the Squier name on the headstock fool you. If you are looking for an affordable, basic precision bass in black with a gloss maple neck, this is the one.

          Like every bass I have ever played, this one was in need of a proper set up. A slight relief adjustment and I was able to set the action really low. I also restrung the E and A strings to make sure they were low enough on the tuning pegs to break properly over the nut. Absolutely no fret buzz and plays great. Nice hi mass bridge with plenty of adjustability. The stock pickups have plenty of output and that classic fender p bass tone. The finish was excellent.

          This is an excellent bass for the money. I was able to get mine as a scratch and dent special, which made this bass an absolute steal
