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!

Great bass, great price

Amazing bass. I really like the P5 from Fender but usually don't play five string basses. So I couldn't justify the cost. I needed a new fiver since I sold my last one (a VM J, great but heavy). Once I saw this bass the GAS was simply unbearable. Plus when looking on the guitar gallery you know the weight , so I knew I wouldn't be receiving another boat anchor.Once the bass showed up it needed a basic setup. It was pretty easy to make it play very well. After a little work on the nut this bass plays amazingly well and the b string sounds very good. I've owned some amazing five strings but this bass is almost as good for a fraction of the price. I like it a lot better that the similar J bass but that is personal preference. The electronics are simple, quiet and don't leave me wanting to tweak anything. And I usually mess around with every bass I own. The fretwork is very good, not perfect but as good as any other Fender I've played. This bass is a total winner, especially considering the price. This would still be a sold deal at twice the price. Really! The fact that I don't feel like I need to mod anything is very surprising to me. At this price I typically expect to have to replace something (honestly at any price I usually do) but this bass is great as is. If you are looking for a great 5 string and like p basses, buy one.

Killer for the price

I have to start off by saying I own the American version of this bass(black instead of white), and I was actually upset when I plugged it in because it sounded surprisingly great. It also came set up so it player like butter, the intonation was right on as well. The low b sounds great! The quality is obviously not of an American but for what it is , it's great. Great back up or knock around . Main difference in tone would be in a live setting it doesn't cut through as well(still not bad at all) and I would say it isn't as warm and full . It still sounds great, I recorded a demo with it and it's a swell instrument, hope this helps someone !
