Played this a few months back. Nicer feel than the much heavier and much thicker/wider necked Fender version. Great value for the price. The star should be a sticker (so you could easily take it off). Pup is very loud, but distorts easily at bout 5/8 of the volume pot. A bigger bridge and better pup would make this a killer bass.

Great backup

By Kurt Stanley

from Nashville,Tn

Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

I own the vintage white model. Had it since april.Have been a pro player for many years and toured all over the world. I recently took a gig with a band that hosts a jam twice a month and found the need for a 4 string backup bass. I play 5-string and doghouse. Many do not. First and foremost the price is about right.The second change I made was a pickup swap to a creme colored DiMarzio.I had the neck and frets smoothed and the truss rod adjusted for a lower action and less buzz.I also did some vintage sanding and aging. (Lose the black star)Basically your getting a sweet Fender P-bass that really looks like a 51 from a crowd's view.All it needs is the little extras and the TLC that the high-end Fenders get before leaving the factories.Through a David Eden World Tour 800 amp with 4-10 EV-600watt cab it sounds every bit as good as any P bass I own. And it didn't cost me a grand.

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    I just love this bass. I bought it as a starter bass when I was just getting into bass, but I've gotten a lot more serious over the years and I still love playing this bass. It doesn't just look nice, it plays nice. While it may not be a high end bass, it is bass worth buying if you are starting up this great instrument or just want another bass for your collection.

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    I just saved up to buy this bass and when I got it I was happy as can be. It sounds much more like Green Day than my Ibanez - I love playing it. I'm a drummer, and I just recently switched, and I'm glad I experimented with this guy. If you like Green Day this is a great bass to use, and one of the only ones with the right sound!

    I've been playing guitar for a while so I decided to start playing bass too. It's hard adjusting from a guitar to a bass but this bass is sweet and easy to play.

    Awesome Bass

    By JinkiesScooby

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    I bought this bass after playing on a peavey mileston and a stagg fretless. This bass is totally awesome by feature standards. The 50's stylings make it totally awesome. The bass is balanced nicely, not too heavy, but is comfortable to play on. Very broad range of treble/bass adjustment. Awesome bass. Totally awesome bass. For the price, a very good buy. Although it is Squier, it is very very similar to the name-brand Mike Dirnt bass. Good choice for a person whose styles of music differ. Plays well everything from punk to jazz.

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    Well my friend has one of these but we customized it, got rid of the star and made the body orange. The bass is amazing love the tone. But my overall favorite part of the bass is the thin neck.

    I've been playing bass for a couple of years, listening to green day since I grew up. The pick up and overall sound is awsome, even if you're not the biggest fan of green day I would definately still recomend this bass.

    Amazing Bass!!

    By MikeDMan

    from Seattle

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    This is a wonderful bass that I would recommend to anyone looking into buying a squire P-Bass. It has a beautiful Green Day, growly tone and is also capable of playing many styles of music. I equally play both Jazz and Rock on this bass due to its tonal varieties. The design and finish are both amazing and the bass comes at an excellent price. You don't have to be a Green Day fan to enjoy this bass.

    Best Bass I've Ever Played

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    I bought this bass in antique white and its absolutely the best bass I've ever played. The look is not only great, it has a great feel. Wonderful tone controls- ranging from a very deep low sound, to a high punchy tone. It delivers more than just a violent bass sound, it has a grungy-metal sound. The strings are set very close to the fretboard, so it is very easy to play. Neck is thin, plays like a dream. Overall great bass. I'd recomend it to anyone.

    Very cool bass

    By BassGuy By The Bay

    from San Francisco, CA

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    I just recently got this bass as a blem. Turned out the only blem was the box. The bass itself was in perfect condition. It was good to go right out of ther box. No adjustments outside of tuning were necessary. Good variety of tone on this one. Remake of a classic '51 Precision. You don't need to be a fan of Green Day to enjoy this bass. Don't let the Squier name fool you. This one is just as good as a true Fender. A great choice for us musicians on a budget.

    Not that good

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    Not as good as the other dirnt p-bass.The quality on this Bass is very cheap.The neck felt small and lousy,the tuning pegs were cheap and the star has to go.I have to say the sound was not bad w/a set of flats it would produce that motown sound.Conclusion,I'd save up for the real Fender dirnt bass and not get this one.

    I have been making a living playing music since 1967 and I have had many basses thru the years. I have and used many basses( Spector-Schector-Ibanez-Fender,etc) But when I ordered this bass and it arrived-I was really blown away-What a wonderful neck and feel-and the pickups sounded great like the old Precision sound that I loved all for a low price It is now my main bass!!!!

    Pretty good

    from a place with a computer

    Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass:

    I've had this bass for about 3 or 4 months and i like it a lot. The only problems that i have are that the neck is not thick enough and the frets are small, but those are just my personal preferences and I easily adapted. This bass has a VERY nice sound and i would reccomend it to anyone who plays any type of music. Without a doubt, this is one of the best basses i have ever played.
