Awesome especially for the price.
All I can say about this bass is WOW! I was in Guitar center yesterday playing pretty much every bass on the wall and finally picked this one up.
I thought it played and sounded better than almost all of them. I always scoffed at Squiers in the past, but this bass made me rethink this. True, it's a short scale but so what? I would go as far to say I would gig with this thing. The tone and feel for this bass for $149 just can't be beat. Just take it home, set it up and maybe crown the frets a bit and I feel you'd have a great bass.
