Inspired by the custom shop.

Squier’s Vintage Modified Cabronita Precision Bass comes out swinging with pulse-pounding tone, sultry-yet-simple style and a welcome dose of feisty Cabronita attitude. Might have something to do with its single powerful Fideli’Tron humbucking bass pickup.

Other features include a maple neck with “modern C” profile, comfortable 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, single-ply white pickguard, dual knurled flat-top control knobs (master volume, master tone), four-saddle Hi-Mass bridge, and vintage-style tuners. Available in only one formidable color—Black.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Cabronita Precision Bass:

This is an amazing bass guitar for the price. Even at list, I would be hard pressed to find many cons. It has that vintage muffled tone that you know and love from the 70's. Personally, I removed the stock strings, sanded down the fret sprouts (all low price basses will usually require minor fret work, when they are shipped from tropical zones to Upstate NY), re-strung it with GHS tape wounds and ....WOW! This bass sounds amazing on my Eden WTX-500 with a single 12inch Eden Cab. It also sounds amazing on my TC BHS500 with a TC 4x10 cab. Absolutely no dead spots what so ever. I will say that the pickup volume is as others have stated rather low, so having either a preamp or volume pedal of sorts will help bring out the wonderful tone. This all being said, if you are like me and want to add a unique sounding instrument to your growing arsenal, then stop reading this and add it to your cart, you will not be disappointed!

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Cabronita Precision Bass:

Made in Indonesia. I expect to do a full setup on any instruments coming from east asia and this was no exception. Neck was a nice piece of straight tight hard maple and has a vintage precision feel. However, the frets literally had green crusty corrosion all over them and needed to be extensively dressed and leveled. Roundwounds insisted on buzzing even after the fret dress and truss rod adjustments and had to go to medium stainless steel 9050M flats to make it playable. Finish was poor, lacked any depth, and looked like it was either rolled on with a roller or sprayed from a spraycan. Most disappointing was a "dead" area in the pickup above the low E string which couldn't be adjusted up. The tone is rough and doesn't seem to be able to get the balance of richness and cleanness like I would expect out of a vintage P (I usually play a 75 P on stage and in studio). Similar tone results on all my amps (all tube Fender Studio Bass; Solid State Fender 410 Bass; Hybrid Carvin 2000). Plays and sounds very similar to my Indonesian G&L 2000 for comparative purposes. If you are looking for a sweet budget bass my Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Special is far superior quality, tone, and flexibilty, especially if you like the faster jazz neck. The Cabrionita is a good inexpensive practice bass but has quality issues that even an extensive pro setup couldn't correct.
