This was my first bass. I chose it for it's unique look over the standard Squiers and for its price, and I wasn't disappointed by what I got. Cosmetically, any of the 3 colors are beautiful colors. The crossbones edition is also pretty cool. As far as electronics go, you get alot more variety and versatility over the other squiers because of it's J and P pickups. Also, the tuning heads and knobs are sturdy. The Mb-4 features 2 tone controls and one volume. I own an Affinity Squier also and I have compared them weightwise. The Mb-4 is lighter (I'd say 2 pounds or so) and sleeker. Overall, if you don't want to spend alot for one of the higher priced Ibanez basses with the same look or a Standard Fender but don't want to have the same old Squier that all of your friends have in their Squier bass packs, pick up an Mb-4!

While Fender quality has been suspect since the 70's CBS acquisition and transfer of production to other countries, I found this bass to be a pleasant surprise. Purchased as a starter for my 15 year old son, I found it offered good balance, lightweight, easy playability and decent tone. With combination P and J pickups, this tone is adjustable for whatever musical style is being played. With the legacy of Fender behind it, seemingly adequate construction, and reasonable cost, I highly recommend this for newbies or those looking for a quality backup.

A Sweet Bass Guitar

By LittleDrummerBoy-keTIe

I've owned the Squier SQ MB-4 4-String Bass for a couple years now and it is an absolute fantastic guitar. This bass never needs tuning. I check it everytime I play and if it is ever off, it is just barely off, if any at all. My sister has a Peavey that costs 4 times as much as my Squier and she likes mine better than hers! I promise you won't go wrong picking up this baby.

A Perfect Begginer Bass

By Shala05

from Houston, TX

I got this bass a couple of weeks ago and I love it. I really looked hard for that perfect first bass and this bass was just right. It's so nice looking and it plays perfectly, it's going to be hard to buy a new one.

Great Bass for the Money

By Lindsaybass

from Sheffield Lake, OH

Second bass I've owned. Nice playability overall, could be a little more tone rich on the lower end. Have had for about six months and am pleased with purchase.

A very solid buy.

By BrianInSLC

from Lindon Utah

Very nice bass. Pick-ups seem a little less sensitive than those on a fender bass my friend has, and I needed to torque the neck bolt a little to get the strings to lie even with the neck all the way down the fretboard. Nice sound, not heavy, gorgeous wood (black cherry burst). A good buy.

I'm not sure...

By TubaTom

Yeah, I got this as a first bass about 4 days ago, and far, it's been somewhat of a mild nightmare. It buzzes all over the place unless I manage to hit that fret JUST right. Go ahead and call me a newbie, but the strings and frets feel really cheap. However, played through a 20w rogue with Mostercables, it sound fairly nice when I do manage to hit the frets so that the buzzing subsides. An Ibanez is probably a better choice if you ask me.

BEST bass deal.

By ByeByeBirdie

from Undisclosed

All these reviews about this being a good starter bass... Heck, I've been playing for 3 years and this is suprisingly still my favorite bass. The J and P pickups provide an insanely versatile sound, from a super smooth rich sound, to a wailing growl perfect for distortion or soloing. This thing also comes armed with an awesome slap n' pop sound. Also, this bass has been dropped so many times, including down stairs, and doesn't even really have a scratch on it. Never had one problem with it in three years. Debating basses? This is a no brainer. Get this.

Nice P/J bass

By Bass Tard

from New York, NY

See all my reviews

Great and adjustable tone and pan pot. Factory set up was pretty good for light roundwound strings. The P and J pickups are nice. The only con is the increasing intonation up the neck. The harmonic and twelveth fret are a few cents off, and by the time you get to the 22nd fret its pretty big. However most basses in this range will display similar characteristics. Great bass with a nice tone even with the light roundwound strings!

Great beginner bass

By Evan the Audio Engineer

I have had this bass for a year now and love it. It's a perfect bass for the beginner bassist and is very durable (I have a little brother/destruction machine). It is set at a very good price and its quality and features are truely satisfying.

Nice bass for beginners

By nick dotter

from Boulder, CO

This is a very nice bass for a beginning bassest. It also has the quality to sirve you well, long into the days of rocking with the bang or hiting gigs. I started with this base and i did not have to replace it for 2 years and i only did fbecause i was playing bigger gigs and needed a better sound even then it was in such nice shape that i sold it for 75 dolars. All and all this is a great bass to get you started on the right foot and have a positive bass playing experience.
