Buy it!

By YuriW, 21/07/2014
My one has a basswood body with a very well made polyester finish, C shaped maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays. It has two single coil pick-ups, one volume knob for each of them and one tone knob for both. Chrome hardware and that cool tortoiseshell pickguard. It looks exactly like the american model, if it wasn’t for the name on the headstock no one could tell the diference by looking.

I am not really a bass player, haven’t used it in any serious gig. I use it mostly to produce videogame soundtracks at my home studio (because there I can always fix stuff later :) , so have played some diferent styles with it. Needed a versatile bass for that and bought one from a friend when he wanted to upgrade his setup.

UTILIZATION

This bass is very ‘easy’ to play: its light enough so you can play it for some hours before feeling it’s weight (get a good strap, it makes a huge diference!). It is also very ergonomic, no weird corners bothering your forearms or belly while playing. If you use your strap in a reasonable height it is very easy to reach the high notes. I also like the neck, it is a bit thinner than the precision basses, if you also play guitar I think it’s easier to adapt to this one, but if you like to play those superfast slap lines a thicker neck might be better.

The vintage style tuning machines do their job well and the whole instrument is very well built and finished.

SOUNDS

I think it sounds really good and close to its original american cousin. You can go from funky lines to walking bass to sabbath with the same instrument, adjusting only the pickup volumes and the settings on your amp. More of the bridge and you get those nice high-mids that can make you be heard in a loud rock band, more of the neck and it gets fuller and smooth for some jazzy lines. Its pretty cool to explore how many possibilites you can have with only three knobs - and maybe a pick if you like them to play bass.

OVERALL OPINION

This combination of versatility and price is absolutely perfect if you're looking for a first instrument (or a first bass if you already play something else) and don't really understand what you want from one. It is also absolutely worth it to invest in an instrument like this: change its pickups, for example, and you’ll have a bass that you can probably keep and get great sounds of for the rest of your life.

But even if keeping an instrument for the rest of your life is not your plan, you can still learn and do a lot with one of these Squier Basses. I really wish that the cheaper instruments where this good when I started playing.

good bass to start and progress

By *ARNO*, 23/06/2014
manufactured in Asia, the bass is well finished ...
For feature live internet, and in general, we do not dwell on the characteristic of a low at this price, we know what it is and where it comes from!
good for the price, it's perfect but it's still cheap as anything else comes from Asia!

UTILIZATION

Super nice handle and glides well, really great to start, it progresses very quickly.
The micro lacks a bit of potato but just turn up the volume and it keeps a very clean sound.

SOUNDS

I play on a Hartke 100w transistor without problem group, concert or rehearsals.

OVERALL OPINION

I have this bass for about 4-5 years, I am more bass guitar, but I really like, so I bought this instrument internet and good surprise, easy to play, set ... I had to other low as Ibanez ATK that was really good, sound level but harder to play!

Superb!

By Wobble Kurtz, 07/03/2014
This is a Chinese made Squier unlike other models that come from Indonesia.
For more details see directly on the Squier site.
In any case the Chinese violin is very very good.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice (it's a round of Jazz Bass) with a thick layer of polyester varnish therefore a real highway.
The have bandwidth to acute is easy.
Ergonomics is very good, it is a bit heavy but the weight is well distributed.

SOUNDS

This is a Jazz Bass so versatile bass, I play with Ampeg BA 112 and I am completely satisfied.
Level settings will have one pickup setting, and neck pickup tone is a passive bass, varied fairly quickly whether to slap or fingers playing sound palette is obtained, it is also possible to a typed his Precision Bass easily.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months, after a break of 10 years I decided to take the bass, and this model did me the eye, after I cracked test as soon ;)
The Classic Vibe series is the high-end Squier, they are comparable to Fender mexico, finishes are really clean, microphones quality, value for money is more than correct.
Whatever your level if you want a low quality not too expensive, go for it.
I tried other Squier models before buying Vintage Modified series which that sounds really good, but the handle is not varnish and much worse than the Classic Vibe finishes.
With the experience I remake that choice without hesitation, it's a great bass.

I love it!

By wuflea, 01/05/2012
Everything has already been said! Chinese Squier violin in good quality for the price.

UTILIZATION

The neck is super nice at the same time, it is a jazz bass. It is a little heavy but nothing too disturbing. It has 20 frets, a little more would have been binerais is typical jazz bass. Access to the treble is good, it mounts easily to the 18 after it is more complicated but they are not the boxes most used ... This bass is very simple, you plug it opens the knobs at the bottom and it sounds right away.

SOUNDS

This bass has great sound for its price. It exceeds, in my opinion, many fender mex. It is suitable for all styles from jazz to rock to funk and. This bass suits all except metal, for that you need to get her sister precision. The micro bridge completely fills its responsibilities with a precise sound. The micro fat neck gives it right. Then, it remains low at € 300 but for that price, it's amazing!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year and a half and really love it. I have tried many models in the 400 € and I think this bass is the best in the 400 can see the € 500! This is my first bass and I really can not part with it. Quality / price. To start, there is no better! I would do this much choice and I also encourage beginners to start with this bass.
