Incredible value!

I bought this bass as a backup to my main stage bass. A Curbow Retro 6er. Put a set of black tape Rotosound flat wounds on it and used it for the first time with a country act that I sub for. Wow! Beautiful, deep, mellow tone! Very quiet electronics in a room that typically is troublesome "buzz-wise". Fit and finish is every bit as good as any Fender that I've ever owned! And for $299? This one's a no-brainer. Great bass!

Great bass at a lower price!

I'm amazed! This bass blown away my head! Great punchy sound, I got a super lower action (1.25 mm on G and 1.75 mm o low B) without fret buzz! The neck is amazing! Super comfortable and great string spacing. Very, very light weight body.I'm so happy!!!

A real "FIND".....

I am a professional bassist (20 years touring with Broadway shows) and have a large arsenal of basses. I own a FENDER USA P Bass 5 string and wanted a "back up" bass for outdoor gigs and to have as a spare. I have been hearing great things about the SQUIER basses and thought I would try this one. Since I have the FENDER USA version of this bass ($1450 street price), I have done countless A/B tests with them. Believe me, if you were blindfolded and handed the Squier bass, you wouldn't know that it wasn't the USA FENDER. It is THAT good! Fit and finish are 1st rate. Of course the USA FENDER has a bit higher quality tuners and bridge, but that does not take away from the fast playing neck and great sound. As a plus...the one that I purchased is light weight. I put some flat wounds on this baby and it captures all the retro 60's vibe perfectly. You can not go wrong buying this SQUIER bass.

Just Wow...

The title of this review says it all. The fit and finish on my bass is flawless. The controls are smooth. The set-up from Sweetwater was perfect. Took it out of the box and immediately played a gig. It has the P Bass sound and feel at a price point that is hard to believe. I will never buy an instrument from anywhere else. A total "Homerun" from Squire/Fender & Sweetwater. Get one, you'll love it.

Soulful and action packed

This bass exceeded my expectations by a country mile! .....rich powerful tone .....exceptional fretwork ...a great well voiced pickup...beautiful finish..... great feel...very tone and pitch stable even de-tuned 1 whole step (gospel style) ...it exceeds my U.S.A. built Fenders in most ways ....unbelievable value...reasonable weight.
