    Use this in a small church and it works great. Have to tweak it a bit, but for the price it's a good buy.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

        About 2 years ago I had been looking for a bass to start learning and practicing with. I carefully sifted through the ones on this website to see which one I'd prefer the most. I ended up going with this one in sunburst and it's been a great choice. Playing on precision pickups give a nice sound almost like a professional bass depending on how good your technique is. The jazz pickup sounds punchy and gives decent tone, not as great as the other one but gives you an idea on how a jazz bass sounds when you start learning. it's a good pj configuration for beginners and you're hearing two different types of sound, how awesome is that for someone starting to pick up a bass! Eventually the high G string gave me fret buzz but at that point I already knew how to adjust the saddle and found that's what was causing it. All in all though this is a great bass and I would never go back on this

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

        I don't six other fender basses (Ps and Js, USA, CIJ, MIM) and love them all dearly. I always loved the idea of adding a Jazz Bass pickup to a P-bass but wasn't willing to throw down for a USA Fender. I spoke with some friends at a local guitar shop asking their opinion about Squier and they told me the brand has come along nicely of late and suggested I give one a try. At first I purchased a Squier Affinity and that was quickly returned once I had a chance to really see how low budget the craftsmanship was. Then I bought this Vintage a Modified and I'm pretty satisfied ... After I spent a few hours working on it that is. Overall the quality was light years better than the Affinity however there were some very visible fills (putty?) all along the upper side of the rosewood neck. They were outside of the playing area but they were very, very visible. I corrected these and sanded the rosewood fretboard to a 400 grit (beautifully smooth) and ten oiled the poor thing (it was as dry as a desert). Next I restrung the bass with Fender 9050Ms (flat wound) and gave it a thorough setup. Once done I sat back and started playing ... And got lost in the joy of the moment. It has a definite P-bass sound but I'm not really hearing as much from the J-bass pickup as I had hoped. Please note, I play 9050Ms on all my Fenders so it's not the strings giving me a sound I don't expect. My guess at the moment is the pickups are not identical to what I'm used to in my Fender basses. It's a guess, I could be wrong. You will need to try one for yourself to decide. I may swap out the pickups to improve the tone in the months to come.

        One last note re the putty used on the freboard, the color match really is perfect and once sanded and oiled it completely disappears.

        Regarding recommending this bass ... I think if I were not spoiled by playing Fenders all the time I would have been pretty happy with this straight out of the box. It seems to be a pretty darn good bass.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ:

          i got mine a few days ago and this bass is awesome. I usually just use the precision pickup for my rock band but the jazz pickup gives a nice tone for playing other styles like jazz and funk. With both pickups all the way up it sounds almost identical to a j bass but fatter. I'd really recommend this one to j bass players who use both pickups cause it sounds better than the j bass. Not sold on playing just the j pickup as it is not as powerful as the ones they put in the J basses. the j pickup is a bit of a cheapie in my opinion but i'll leave it cause im more of a precision guy and rarely use it. If you wanna get that jaco tone id recommend upgrading the j pickup. pulling one out from squire vm j bass should do the trick. then you'd really have the best of both worlds. for the price this bass is a steal

            Great bass guitar for the money. High end models sell for 5 times as much. This instrument gives you 90% of the feel and sound of the more expensive units. Is that last 10% worth all that extra cost?
