Humble Yourself.

The quality of this Bass for the price you're getting it at is criminal. Every other review is right. In my opinion, the only difference between this Squire P Bass and any other American I've played is the price tag. Guess you'll have to get one to find out for yourself! I'm thinking about buying another just to have around the studio. I don't even need it... I just like it that much. I usually try and replace all stock pick ups, but I'm not sure that this one even needs that. As always, Mihael Eads showed outstanding professionalism in getting me set up and situated.

Best Bass For the Money

Never have I had a bass be so perfectly set up, play so well, or look so good right out of the box. Everything about the vintage modified Precision bass is exceptional: the action is perfect, the string spacing is ideal, the maple neck feels phenomenal, and it has plenty of growl to fill out my band's music. Sweetwater nailed it on all fronts with this instrument, and if you're looking for a great five-string for a great price, look no further.

The Real Deal

I have always loved the P bass, and I have wanted a 5-string version for a long time. Even though I can afford a Fender P5, I can't justify the cost, and thanks to Squier, I don't have to. This is a legit, real-deal 5 string P bass. The pictures don't show how nice it really is, and it truly sounds great - like a P bass should! Mine arrived perfectly set up, and the neck profile had got to be the nicest, most comfortable I have ever played! The pickup is also dead quiet. No hum or buzz. This is not a beginner bass, backup or knock-around. This is a pro-quality bass for an entry level price and I stand by that. Squier is killing it these days!

hidden treasure

I bought this bass as a utility P-Bass to use as a back-up or on gigs that didn't deserve my high end basses . I have a USA Fender P5 and have to say that I prefer the sound of the Squier Vintage 5. It is that good! You can get picky and find that the hardware is not top level, etc.. but the bottom line is that it plays and sounds great for a price that is truly hidden treasure. This has no right to sound as good as it does at this price point. I now use this bass when I need a Precision Bass sound and do not use my American Fender P5. I am a pro player (20 years touring with Broadway shows, 10 years of jingle work,etc..) and know good basses. I have a very big collection of bass guitars (30 of 'em) but this is one that I am using a lot now.

Amazing bass for the money

Like the other reviewer, I'm not a big 5-string guy. I own several 4 string basses (USA Fender P, Marcus Miller Jazz, Rickenbacker 4003, MusicMan Stingray) that I love to play, but needed a 5-string for occasional gigs. I could never really find a 5-string that was perfect for me, but the closest I came was an American Standard P bass 5-string. I absolutely love that bass, but I knew that if I bought it, I'd want to install a Jazz bass bridge pickup just to increase the versatility. Now, with this bass, I can do that without feeling guilty thanks to the amazing price. My expectations for this bass were high, and they truly were met. I have NEVER played a Squier that feels this good. They've really come a long way in the quality of their basses. The action is great and the neck overall feels amazing. The only downside to this bass is that the pickup is a little weak and not as bright as you might find on an American Standard P bass, which I expected. That being said, you could always upgrade the pickups and still be spending about a third of the money as you would on the American Standard (which is exactly what I plan on doing). Overall, I would recommend this bass to anyone!In addition, Sweetwater's customer service was incredible! Fast shipping, and everything was perfect right out of the box. Thanks so much!
