Fender? No! Squier. Yes! :D

I can't afford Fenders. I needed a bass. (Accidentally--I ordered in a hurry--I got a short scale, which is what I really needed as I play it in a recliner and as my left-hand fingers don't work so well and a regular [long] scale would have fret-distances to large near the head-stock!).So, I bought a Squier. And, I was (figuratively) "blown away" by the quality. Hopefully, some day I'll be able to afford a Fender bass (maybe a lefty as I play uke lefty, tho' I'm a righty--lefty due to some physical disabilities) and be able to compare Fender to Squier directly. Until then, Fender has lost any potential business because of the 5 stringed instruments I own (all 2015 dollars: forgotten-maker/$30 uke, $250 Ibanez tenor uke, $230 Peavey lap steel, and $300 Ibanez acoustic/electric steel-stringed guitar, and $180 Squier Shorty-Bass), the Squier is by far the best built and best sounding (tho', I love my tenor uke).Again, until I get rich ([chuckle]) enough to gamble on a Fender, my next guitar (will be a Sweetwater guitar) will be a Squier (lefty)!!Fender might not have shot themselves in the foot with (lost sales to) Squier, but, they surely must have a sore toe or two! The exceptional quality of my Squire bass is incredible for the price when compared with my other stringed instruments! INCREDIBLE!

Amazing bass...how sweet the sound!

I had played the same Fender Jazz Special for years and loved it, but I have recently developed carpal tunnel syndrome and was looking for a short scale bass for something easier on the hands and shoulder. This bass received excellent user reviews on Talkbass and for $179 from Sweetwater it was an easy lift. It has since become my main bass. Squier hit a home run with this one! BTW, the Fender Urban Short Scale Bass Gig Bag is a perfect fit. My sales engineer Robbie Resnick was awesome as usual. Couldn't be happier.

Short Scale at a reasonable price

This was my first Squire purchase and I was slightly hesitant, but bought it anyhow as a project bass. I own a 72' Jazz and a newer Rickenbacker, but wanted a lighter, faster option and this bass definitely delivers both. I replace the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan Vintage Jazz; which sounds great blended with the stock P-pickups. After replacing the strings with flatwounds, and a minor set up I was extremely surprised and decided to test it out at rehearsals. This thing sounded great during rehearsals and I started wondering if Squire might be an underrated option, particularly if you like tinkering around with pick ups, pots, etc. This is a great bass for the price, throw a little extra love (replace pick ups, and/or pots) at it and you may like what you hear. A thank you to my sales engineer Nate Edwards!


I've been playing since I was 14 and I'm 55 so I've been around for a while and owned way too much gear in my lifetime. We got this for my wife to learn on and I have to tell you I'm blown away at the quality of this little bass for the money! The neck alone is worth more than the price! The fret work is exceptional for something in this price range and the set up was GREAt right out of the box...just had to stretch the strings and play them in. I'm blown away for the price.....you can't go wrong with this bass! GET ONE!

The Perfect Guitar Players Bass

Other than tuning, this bass was perfect out of the box. Not a blemish to be found and all hardware secure and functional. Also, as a guitar player, this bass is a natural fit. Very comfortable to hold and play. Unlike some reviews I have read, I found the output and tone to be just what I need from both pickups. My favorite setting is a blend between the two with the split Precision pickup sitting just a bit above the Jazz pup but the more I play it, the more tones I find.
