Superb Bass!!! What a bargain...
by Jon Holley from Birmingham, AL USAI played this one back to back with it's USA counterpart and the differences were so miniscule they aren't worth mentioning. For the money, you will NOT find a better Bass. Great for a beginner or a... read more [+] gigging musician. Neck feels great, pickups are not bad at all. The only thing it "needs" is a proper setup which is a prerequisite on most imports and some US instruments. Great guitar!!! close [-]

Best Value In A Bass
by fromThe price of this bass it ridiculously low considering its quality. I also have a Squier Affinity J Bass, and this bass makes it seem like a toy.

This bass could be used for any style of music. Looks incredible, well-made, can't beat it. close [-]

Fit and finish are nearly perfect. The 3 pieces of maple on my body have great grain and are so closely matched and you can only make out the difference in certain lights.
The one piece maple neck has a beautiful grain to it as well and plays great. Fast, smooth and even up and down the neck. No sharp frets and the action was perfect right out of the box.
After passing my initial inspection I immediately slapped some D'addario Flatwound strings in it (for a true vintage sound) and intonated it. The tuners can take a bit of force to move but otherwise do a great job of keeping everything locked in tune.
I was pleasantly surprised by the Duncan-Designed pickups. I figured I'd want to change them out immediately but they do a great job of capturing that distinctive jazz bass tone and have good output and are quite versatile. You can go from funky slap to deep, woody bass with a few tweaks.
The only, very minor, complaint that I have is with the volume knobs. They are useless up until about 60% and then jump way up in volume. However, the Fender CIJ Jazz Bass does the same thing so I can't really hold that against the Squier. I plan on throwing some better pots in there anyways since it is an easy and cheap thing to fix.
Compared to my friend's Fender CIJ Jazz Bass (which I was using prior to this one arriving), this Squier holds its own against a bass twice the price. It's the kind of guitar that just makes you want to keep playing and playing so grab one at this steal of a price before Fender realizes they can change the name on the headstock and sell these for $600 a pop. close [-]
by Ryan Merida from Hollywood, CAI began playing bass only a few years ago and as soon as i played this bass at the store i knew it was the one i had to have. The TONE is very warm and funky.

And the natural wood finish is a knockout. close [-]
