was originally looking for a cheap Jazz Bass body to get for making a pattern for a pine body J bass. This was sold as a "return" 2nd because it was missing an A string & had a small cosmetic scratch. Just for fun, I replaced the string, buffed out the scratch, lowered the action and couldn't believe what I was hearing (& feeling!). Somehow I lucked out and got a light ash body (under the candy red). This thing vibrates acoustically like no other bass I've picked up, and the neck is wonderful!! I like it so much, that I've put off that pine project for now and still can't believe what I got. Pure Magic.

This was the first bass I ever owned. When I first got it, I had no idea what a bass even did so when the guy at the store played it I was like "cool." Anyway... after about 2-3 months of playing, I noticed significant buzz on anything below the 9th fret, my G strings had the worst tone ever, just plucking it came out sounding like a rancid pop. After about 6-8 months, the input jack screw came loose and snapped the inside wiring, so I had to solder the thing. keep in mind I took perfect care of it. Its tone is quite awful, the buzzing is annoying, I think a beginner should look elsewhere, but I really haven't played any other beginner basses since this. My rating is compared to the basses I own now.

Awesome bass

By Kyle O'Donnell

from WI

boom

Neck feels great, the scale of the bass allows for the Drop A tuning that i use and there is little to no fret buzz in the upper register of the neck.

More Bottom end for your Buck!

By 100proofhero

from Denton, TX

I have played bass both as a career, and for fun, and I've owned a lot of bass guitars. This one is right up there in both quality and tone with anything out there. I had to sell my American P Bass, and needed a replacement for my home studio. For the price I figured I would take a chance, and I couldn't be happier. The individual volume knobs make for endless tonal possibilities. You can get really punchy tone(similar to a musicman), really low growl, and even a very classic tone, just by dialing in the two pick ups. I would recommend this to any bassist, and don't let name brands keep you from great sound.

great bass

By 74ekaj74

from Merritt Island, FL

Works great right out of the box. It feels/plays better than most, more expensive, Fenders I have played. I have had this bass for 3 years now and I love it!

Great Bass!

By JBassGuy93

from Louisville, KY

I recently bought this bass over the 2009 summer. I wanted a bass for quite a while and saw this on sale and got the Walnut Satin version (very good looking). Amazingly, I got this out of the package, plugged it all in and it worked perfectly. The strings stay in tune, the knobs all worked, and nothing was wrong. It was a worthwhile investment, and it works with every type of style of music.

Good Starter Bass For The Price

By Porkchop

from Chicago burbs

My 2nd axe, took it in to a professional guitar player/store, he said awesome bass for the money, was just about perfect right out of the box, put some high beams on it and good to go, shoulda bout this bass 1st instead of my dean ml, buy this bass, you will b happy, lots of different sounds and styles can b had on this one, the walnut finish is awesome and a few bucks cheaper than the other colors, only thing is the packaging/cardboard box is flimsy and cheap, had one very small dent on the side of the body due to box slightly splitting apart, but maybe it was ups and the way they through them around during shipping, i highly reccomend this bass for the price and quality.

Nice Bass!

By Rhythm Man

from Arkansas USA

I purchased this for my son, who is a beginner. I bought it based on the Squire name, figuring it would be a good, solid, beginner bass. It's that and more. This is exceptional quality for the price. AND it came out of the box almost perfectly set up. Intonation was great on all four strings. Action was low and easy. The E string was just a tad low with some buzz above the 12th fret, but a small adjustment cured that right up. The nut was well done. String height was ideal. My son loves this instrument, and now wants to practice a lot more. I played a 77 vintage Fender (American) Precision Bass, and I can tell you, I prefer the action and overall playability of this instrument. In all honesty, I have compared Squire basses to Fender MIM standards, and the action on the Fender standards is better (in my opinion). Pickups are better on the Standards too (in my opinion). However, I haven't played an American Fender since my P-Bass, so I can't compare to those. I really like this bass, and would have been happy if I'd have bought one for myself. In fact, I'm looking for an excuse to borrow it from my son so I can play it with a band.

Great bass slap happy not.

By ATM

from Washington

I love this bass. I played at a good size party last weekend and it did excellent. It is really a great buy for the price. My brother plays also but he's harder on equip then I am. He played it slap and the pickup dropped. I'm sure he slapped to hard and they repaired it for me free. No more slapping for him. Otherwise can't rave enough. Very versatile E string does buzz if not held down properly. Just make sure intonation is done on it and mine cleared up.

Great Bass for anyone

By quack8450

from Poughkeepsie, NY/ Worcester, MA

This Bass is has a great sound and the narrow neck allows for fast action. Its not too heavy or burdening and the shape allows you to comfortably sit down with it. In addition, the price is not too bad so both amateurs can play pretty much a professional grade instrument.

Very nice

By Pleschette aka Plushie

from California

I'm a new bass player, been playing for nearly a year now. It's great for beginners, it has a sleek thin neck, nice distance between the frets, making it easy to play, surprisingly light weight and has a overall nice 'feel' to it. I own the "walnut satin" color, and it's gorgeous. Basically, for the price and quality that you get, it's definitely worth it.
