This bass guitar is Squier's version of the Fender MB-4 design. It shares the electronics and overall playability of the Jazz Bass and P Bass but in a design that is smaller, lighter, and a lot easier on the shoulder. The agathis body is sculpted for comfort and full fretboard access. It features a combined P/J pickup configuration, adjustable bridge, 2 + 2 tuners, and knurled metal P Bass knobs.

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.

I have had on of these for over two years and have been totally pleased. No, it's not Fender Jazz bass, but for this thing is solid. It has great tone and decent action. I often play gigs that last four hours or more and never get 'worn out'. When its time to tune up before the gig, I just stand there because it stays in tune. Good quality bass that will let a beginer get started with out the high price. I recommend this bass.
This was my first bass that I got about 5-6 years ago. I've played it the whole time and it's still in great condition. It's got great tone and has wonderful neck for great playability. This is still my main bass that I play. It Sounds great though and is very durable for anyone that's clumsy or has destructive friend's.
This is a very good bass for beginers and sounds very good i highly recommend getting it if you are thinking about getting a bass
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.
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 lost my old Fender P to my ex-wife, so I bought the MB-4 to tkae its place, as a versatile hybrid of the P and Jazz. My MB-4 looks and feels good, and the features are nice as much as I've been able to use them. Unfortunately, my MB-4 arrived with a wiring problem with the Jazz pickup, and I haven't yet been able to fix it. I guess that's what I get for buying a Squier instead of a real Fender. Overall, it's a great instrument for the price; just beware of the quality.
The Squier MB-4 is a pretty darn versatile bass for 200 dollars. The P/J pickup mix allows for a variety of tone and the light weight and slim neck allow for exceptional playability. If you are on a budget, and need a bass that will give you that punch you're looking for, this bass is the way to go. P.S. I am incredibly impressed with the increasing quality of Squier's Products. Squier is quickly becoming to Fender what Epiphone is to Gibson.
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.
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.
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.
