Can Gig

Purchased last March. Replaced the knobs with standard JB knobs and put flat wounds on it. I usually do a set-up when I have gear shipped to me, but I found it wasn't necessary, good work Sweetwater! Stays in tune, in fact the "cheap" tuners don't feel cheap- I'm genuinely surprised by the hardware coming out of the Indonesian factory, and feel that the craftsmanship gap between Fender and Squire is becoming narrower. I bought this to retire my aging and valuable 72' Fender JB. I wasn't sure if I would be able to gig with it, but after putting Seymour Duncan Antiquity II pickups in the bridge and neck, I now bring it to every gig, and play it on most songs in the set aside from a few that I use a Ricky on. If you enjoy doing a little modification (replace pots, pickups,wiring) you will end up with a gig-worthy instrument that can hang with the Fender gang. Shoutout to my sales engineer Nate Edwards.

Just finished taking the finish off mine

Got mine last year, a lefty that I flipped over to right hand. Removed pickguard. Found it heavy and figured it would help to strip off the finish (it's natural butterscotch, or was), so 3 days of heat gun later, I had it down to the bare wood all over. It's lighter and it's incredibly clear sounding now. These particular ones have great necks and have a superb growl if you are playing rock. I like this bass as much as my 66 P bass - it's less punchy but has incredible character for a new bass, with beautifully detailed highs and excellent low end tone.


After agonizing over what to buy for my first bass, I finally bought this one. It has amazing versatility that really surprised me. I have had the bass for two weeks now, and I can tell you that the construction is built to last. Sweetwater sets it up for you so it's ready to jam right out of the box. This bass feels great(lightweight and perfect fret size), and sounds great(deep creamy lows to clear highs and punchy mids). I think that this is definitely better than the 70's in both appearance and sound. Don't worry about damage during shipping because mine made it all the way to Portugal in perfect condition. I am really happy that I chose this bass, and Sweetwater is the best! Thanks.

Sweet bass!!

I can't believe how nice this bass is!It sounds great,plays great and looks great! I brought it to a jam session and other bass players loved it too! Hard to believe it's so affordable!

So Much Bass For Three Hundered Bucks!

I just purchased this bass and can't believe how much bass you get for $300.00. I was a little hesitant knowing the bass was made in Indonesia but I pulled the trigger regardless. In my opinion Fender China instruments are some of the worst stuff Fender has put out. Anyway, this bass came from Sweetwater in 2 days. Expertly checked out by Sweetwater staff, I was blown away with fit and finish on this one. Electronics surprised the heck out of me. Quiet and on the money dials. Great Fender jazz sound. Setup was perfect from Sweetwater. Set to exactly where I play my Fenders. I assumed before it got here I would be dropping it off for a fret dress. I assumed wrong on this one. It's a VERY NICE neck indeed. It does have a great vintage feel to it overall. I did replace the bridge (nothing wrong with the factory one) with a Gotoh bridge and man what a difference in sustain. A very nice upgrade! Sure, it's not an American or even a Mex but it's so much bass for $300.00. This one should be the flagship for Squier!
