A Precision bass designed to the specs of the Green Day bassist.

Every day is a Green Day when you suit up with the Mike Dirnt Precision Bass®. It's a way-cool take on an early '50s Precision Bass, designed to the oft-airborne Green Day bassist's own specifications, with a huge, gnarly punk-pop sound that effortlessly punches right through the thickest guitar attack. This new version sports some subtle aesthetic changes. The special star graphic has moved to the neck plate and Mike chose some new pickguards to adorn his bass.

Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt Signature Precision Bass:

Pro bassist for 45 years owned everything once upon a time. Big fan of early 50's P Basses and have a bunch including 2 of the Classic Vibe (Blue and Natural) which came out of the box almost ready to play. A slight truss rod twist and perfection. THIS BASS however which is near the same price point was quite different. The truss rod needed at least 3 turns, the strings were super high, and all the fret ends were like razor blades. After alot of twisting and adjusting, shaving off the fret ends, and sanding the back of the neck with 1000 grit paper it now plays extremely well. Luckily I build and repair guitars or I'd have spent a bundle getting this to play at a repair shop. It now plays really well and sounds like a P Bass. The other commenter said it was light and it's SUPER light maybe 6 lbs to the point it's just slightly neck heavy light. Side by side comparison with a regular P Bass this one was a little less punchy probably because of the lightweight body but adding a touch more bass on the amp and it was about the same. It will be nice to play something really light for a change. My go to Basses are Fenders and Thunderbirds. OVERALL unless you really want that split P bass sound, the Classic Vibe is a light year better quality, feels much more solid and is playable out of the box. Am I disappointed, NO, but if I didn't know how to set it up properly and tweek it to make it play I would have sent it back. I would recommend this to a friend ONLY if he knew how to do an entire set up or had a good tech. If you don't know how to do this, the Classic Vibe is the way to go.

Comments about Squier Mike Dirnt Signature Precision Bass:

Playing bass for eight years, I know what a good bass should sound like. And in my opinion, this is one of the best sounding basses for the price. Wanting an alternate to a Heavy Peavy and the desire for a simple P bass I bought this on a whim. And I'm totally pleased with what I got. What really stood out first was the tone. In my opinion, it sounds great. While it doesn't sound like the Fender Mike Dirnt, I can compare it to a Fender P bass. The best comparison I can come up with is probably the Mark Hoppus signature. To sum up, it doesn't sound like a squier, it sounds like a great Fender. Second its lightweight. I've been able to play this much longer because its so dang light! And the body makes it comfortable to play with a pick for hours. it has great hardware and It rarely has come out of tune. And it looks great! No more stupid star on the body that makes it look childish! the finish looks great and the pickguard looks fancy! Overall, its a great bass for the money and can stand its ground against some Fenders. Absolutely Great Bass. I would recommend it any day of the week.
