Punk growl with Pete's signature graphics.

The agathis body is offset by a shell pickguard and the Wentz's iconic bat/heart logo. The Duncan-designed split single-coil pickups with alnico magnets carve out that distinctive punk growl you want.

Great value for a bass that's quality made. All levels of playing experience will love Squier's quality. I give this bass two thumbs up
The bass I got has nice low action, light and comfy. one P- style pick up with a volume, people gripe about no tone knob, but you can always adjust the tone at the amp (afterall that's what all the knobs on the amp are for). Maple neck, maple fretboard is nice to look at and play
I have over 20 years of playing experience. i bought this guitar for my daughter since she's a Wentz fan, and she wanted to learn to play. I was blown away by Squier's quality. Squier makes some really good instruments that someone from beginner to Pro could play on. I saw a you-tube vid of Pete Wentz saying these bases are soo good that he uses them in the studio as well as for live performance. That says alot to me because Pete can afford to play on way more expensive basses. Looks way better in person the red pickguard on black really makes it pop. I dont care for the bat heart too much, but It's part of the Wentz theme.

I've been playing for more than 40 years, in every style from James Jamerson, to Jack Bruce to Chris Squire to Adam Blackstone. Now I'm in an R&B band again and wanted a P-bass for that fat, thumpy sound. Yes, I realize that that Fall Out Boy isn't exactly R&B, but I fell in love with the light weight (hey, 40 years playin', yeah, I'm an old fart who doesn't want to hang a cinderblock around his neck for a 4 hour gig:)), excellent action and perfect neck in the example of this bass I tried at the local music store. My one complaint is that the "Duncan Designed" pickup is almost too hot for the sound I'm going for. I have to dial the volume back to about 75% and EQ a lot of 3K out of the amp (SWR with a 15 and 2x10). The up side is that I can easily get a great pop-slap sound for some of the old-school funk we do (e.g. Brick House, Thankyoufallentinmebemicelf :)) without having to switch guitars. Since the thing is priced so low, I don't care if it gets dinged, falls off the stand, whatever. The look with the red pickguard is pretty cool and the "bat-heart" logo (whatever that is) is not too goofy. Since I plan to play this axe a lot maybe I'll wear it right off. :)Obviously I can't speak to the quality of every example of this guitar (hey, Squier is lots better than it was but it's still Squier-made-in-Indonesia, not Fender-made-in-USA) so consistency may be an issue -- I just can't say. If they're all as nice as mine they're a heck of a deal.

For Modern Rock ONLY

By Zacky Vengeance

from LA, Cali

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

Although I play guitar for my band, I also play a little bass. I have been envying this Pete Wentz bass for awhile, so I bought it. It actually turned out to be my perfect bass. Since I am primarily a post-hardcore artist, it suits my needs perfectly. There's no hassle getting that trebly sound found primarily found in modern rock (evident with the absence of tone knob) and hot looks. If you play only rock and no other genre, then this bass could suit you perfectly. But if you play genres such as jazz, then I wouldn't recommend it. Quality and its features although are a downside. My bass came shipped with a tuning alike to Drop Q haha. So that had to be changed. After doing this minor change however, it can stay in tune for a good amount of days. I haven't really sent it into a workshop to get it fixed, but likely I will since tuning guitars are a huge hassle.

Great Bass

By Davis-K4L8-

from Ashland, KY

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

This Is A Great Bass! I got this bass as a Christmas Present in 2009 and have been playing it for over a year. Great Sound, tone, and very good looking. This year I replaced the Duncan Pickups with EMG-P Active P Bass Pickups and it is amazing!

Not Bad.......

By MaverickE.

from Alberta,Canada

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I got this as a gift from my parents. This is my first bass, so I wasn't looking for something amazing, just something to play around with. I am a pretty big fan of fall out boy and Pete Wentz, so I thought I would give this one a try. This bass was a pleasant surprise. I've played other squiers, and the quality on the ones I playing was pretty bad. This is was the first thing I noticed. It is actually very good quality for a squier. Of course, the quality isn't on par with actual Fenders, but it is very close. The tone is very 1-dimentional, as other people have said, but it's okay. I don't walking over to a amp and messing with the settings, but that does bother some people. The aesthetics are very cool. Keep in mind that the bat heart design is the logo of a actual company that Pete wentz owns, and it is really pops out. The pickguard also stands out a lot. The jazz neck is a joy to play. All in all, this is a great bass FOR BEGINNERS. I don't reccomend that a expert player would be buying this bass anyway, as it is a squier. So don't expect too much, because squiers are meant to be for for beginners, and this bass is perfect for just that.

Way too creamy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I got this bass expecting a really punchy pokey sound but the tone was just really creamy and crunchy. Maybe it'd be good for playing deathgrind but it just can't recreate that classic pop punk tone unless you take out the precision pickup and put a jazz one in its place.Also, some of the frets popped off during a show and somebody took the tuning knobs off so that was a pain to replace. They should have made them a bit more secure against burglars in this crazy world.

Not So Much Punk

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

A great bass with simple features, but I would only consider investing if you are certain in recreating Pete's sound.

Amazing Bass

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

Got this for my birthday. Cant be anymore pleased. As with other signature basses it has no tone knob, which works great for me as i never use mine. The Jazz maple neck is a dream. In some cases, you may need to adjust the action by a hair, and its built very well. Sounds good for anything and best in the Squier lineup.

Not bad at all...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

This bass rocks! Is has very cool features like the jazz bass neck, awesome pickups, and the bat-heart logo. It lacks a tone knob but the bass plays pretty good without it. Some people have complained about the bass not having it's tone knob but you can just change your amp settings to give it the tone that you want. This bass can also play all sorts of rock and it is also very good at playing metal. I own this bass and i totally love it.

less is more

By little Tommy to my mommy

from Vancouver BC Canada

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

most bassists barely if ever use the tone knob, so getting rid of it is- for me, a good idea one less thing to go wrong on stage or in the studio, honestly I don't even need the vol knob. I play rock in most of its myriad forms and coupled with another cheap bass in the Squier lineup( the Mike Dirnt) I can nail most of the sounds I want. I didnt really care that they are artist models all I really cared about were the features and the looks and both of these guys set up their instruments much the way i do. I did take out the stock pup and put in an older dimarzio humbucker ( had to route the cavity) bass pup to give more thud in the sub 100 hz area than the Mike Dirnts bass, I bought mine used and installed a flashier pickguard as well. For what i paid (210 CAD) used I'm happy, I would have to pay twice that to get a MIM Fender.

Alright, I guess...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Pete Wentz Signature P Bass:

I played it in a music store not too long ago. It's not necessarily bad, but it's nothing special either. I actually find the lack of a tone knob inconvenient. I don't mess with the tone knob often, but it's easier to turn it a little bit to get a different sound than to have to go over to my amp and mess with the settings.I personally don't care for its design or the fact that it's a signature bass; you should play an instrument because you like the sound and not how it looks. It's built pretty well and would be good for playing punk I guess, but I prefer the Fender standard P-bass.
