          I have play it at GC, it sound much SPARKLING than CV 60 P bass.
          BUT the after i try 3 copies, all got Fret Buzzing with low action.CV 60 P withou this problem.
          This NOT a problem for those player who play with high action.

                Comments about Squier Vintage Modified P Bass:

                Ive been playing bass for 8 years and have never had enough money for a nicer bass, so right off the bat the price was perfect. I was a little jaded about squier and thought they were just beginner instruments but i took the leap and i was seriously blown away. The neck is so smooth and fast, the color of the body and the black pick guard is beautiful. there was some dead spots and the strings were junky right out of the box but thats an easy fix. I threw some flats on it sounds spectacular. I bought it without playing it and i deabted it for about two years, If your in the same boat dont wait, pick this thing up it is a great bass. I was even going to change the pickups but i dont think i will because of how nice they sound. I cant even get over how cheap the bass is for the quality

                    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified P Bass:

                    As a sixty-five year old hippy-dippy bassplayer from way back, let me say that, all I ever learned-with, or made-Money with, was a Fender Precision Bass (except for a couple Stingrays in the latter years)! All five of the Preccisions were 3-tone sunburst with real 3-ply, tortouise-shell pickgaurds; Market values about, four-C-notes retail w/case, and as low as a single-C-note, second-hand w/case: So,I know Precisions!

                    The Squire VINTAGE MODIFIED P-BASS has blown my mind, totally man! With a little "easing-off" of the frets at the edges of the fingerboard; I WOULD NOT BE AFRAID to use it for an audition with a big band, like, say, YES, Jethro Tull, King Crimson,or Pink Floyd(a gig that important to me)! The passive DUNCAN DESIGN pickups give everything us old-timers ever dreamed of: WITHOUT SACRAFICING THE VINTAGE P-BASS SOUND. The finish on the body is amazing, and the satin finish on the maple-neck and maple fingerboard (if finished at all) is wonderfully, quick and silky-smooth. Moreover, the hardware is just fine.

                    I dig this thing so much that I bought a TWEED, hardshell case; tweed Chords; and, an earthy leather strap; all, coodinating with its "Route 66" persona and ambiance.

                    I never liked the "feel" of a SQUIRE and I would never consider buying one. But when I examined this one on the Internet, I had a "HUNCH" about it: I was correct! Having sold all my original P-Basses over the decades, I was "pining" for one, like an old guy pines for his first wife or old-girlfriend.

                    "Welome home, darlin'."

                    ..... You CAN go home!

                    Best value on the market today.

                    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified P Bass:

                    This thing is PUNCHY. When I plugged it in I could not believe how bright it was, the maple really does its job. The pickups I find to be pretty unbalanced and lifeless, I plan on replacing them soon. The tuners however, work great and hold tune for a long time, and the bridge is about as simple as it gets, and gets the job done.

                    Oh, and change the strings. The ones that come on the bass are probably the worst I've ever played.
                    The quality control I encountered with this bass is among the worst I've ever seen. The pickguard screws were ALL drilled lopsided, it seems that the nut was fitted by a monkey, and to top it all off the sharpest frets and harshest buzz.However, this is a 'starter level' instrument, so this is all expected.
                    Once I spent a hefty sum on an exeptional full setup, this bass plays and sounds equal to a higher end Fender.
                    For the price, you get a P-bass, with a maple body, ONE piece maple neck with a skunk stripe, and a Duncan pickup. Not bad at all.

                    As I said, really can't complain for the price. It stands up to "real" Fender Ps that I have played.
                    I own a '97 American deluxe jazz, and I don't recon its ten times better. I know they are a totally different beast but if you need a solid gigging bass; this will do the job without too mutch pain to the finances.
                    If you wanted you could put on a higher mass bridge, and maybe some better tuners, but the ones already on it do their job. Kinda defeats the purpose of buying a cheaper instrument. I'm leaving mine as stock, apart from the strings. And the Duncan Design pickup works great.
                    It's a P Bass. We all know what we're getting don't we? I bought this for gigging. It came set up nicely out of the box. I got this for tuning down a whole tone, so I'll get a guitar tech to do that. Didn't want to do that with my good basses. I have no complaints with this bass. Just a good workhorse . The pickup is surprisingly good. The neek is also nice with a satin finish (unfinished?) It's nice and smooth all the same.
                    The finish of the body is flawless. Looks really cool in real life.
                    Flawless. Unbelievable for what it cost.
                    Unbeatable.

                    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified P Bass:

                    Like I said earlier nothing is PERFECT...If your looking for a bass to play and gig with and that looks sooo cool and sounds just like the more expensive ones get the VM modified P ,and for you beginners out there if you got this bass as a gift or you just got it for a staster bass you really lucked out cause this is all you will need if you want to upgrade later thats up to you but like i said I'm into bass 35 yrs. worth and this is what I use now so go figure,oh and did I mention this is the only squier on MF that has a 5 STAR rateing...
                    this bass is everything you need and then some,nice finish,fretwork and the tone is vintage p bass sounds just like my 61 p. I didnt give it a 10 on this catagory cause nothing is perfect.I have tried new fenders americans and MIM ones and the Squier VM played and felt way better than those.. Iv'e been plaing bass for over 35 yrs. and this one just fits, I will be gigging with this bass 99% of the time now as I dont want my 61 to get jacked or lost or damaged...Good job Squier!!!
                    Its built well,flawless finish and broken in feel on the neck the hardware isnt top notch but it does what it is intended to do,I think all these cats out there that nick pick every little detail and part on their reviews are just fumed about paying more for a bass that functions and sounds and feel just as good if not better than their expensive bass , so they take out there frustration and trash the bass with a bad review,( just my opinion)
                    Why pay more for the name brand when this one does the same but better to me...

                    My bass player bought this bass the other day from a local long and mcquade because we were in a rush and on a budget and he was gonna get a short scale jaguar bass but there were none in so we looked for a bit and found this beauty. It is sooo good for a squire the neck already had the finish removed, it came stock with duncan designed standard pbass pickups and its pretty light weight also and the action was already setup perfect and ready to play KUDOS!

                    honestly just get this bass. why even go for something else? if you don't want this color then just get the white one, or like the standard black p bass, whatever. as long as it's this bass you're good. first off the finish is BEAUTIFUL. it's far better than anything else in its price range, and everything in a higher price range as well. aesthetically, this is the sweetest looking bass around. and aesthetics are important. they give you confidence and inspiration. value wise, this is legit a steal. i got it for 250 bucks (w/ 10% off coupon), and it is definitely just as good as any fender. don't ever let the squier name fool you. their low-end cheapo stuff is crap but that has nothing to do with this. the quality of this bass is outstanding. the sound is growly and warm, yet smooth and clear. the looks, feel, sound, quality, value, and everything about this bass is flawless. you will love it! it's perfect for any style. go get yourself a squier vintage modified precision bass and you will never look back.

                    I love this bass. It sounds amazing. I sold my Fender P Bass for this bass. Its so much better. The one-piece maple neck feels great. Everything on it is solid and dialed. It has this piano string sound, that sounds amazing. Great for Punk, Ska, Indie, or Rock. It goes well with any kind of music. Good job Squier!
