Review Classic Vibe Precision Bass '50s 2011

Do you feel the vibe?

Squier has been making low-cost guitars based on Fender designs since 1982. Because their early guitars have now become collector items for some, Squier is seeking to regain some of that magic with their Classic Vibe Series. This latest series was launched to capture the "vibe" of classic Fender designs as opposed to trying to be exact reproductions of vintage models. read more…

Small price, big sound

By Forczz, 05/12/2011
Apparently factory in PRC, the passive bass is equipped with a vintage bridge says "High Mass" 4 bridges, a handle type C pais of 20 frets, one single coil pickup contr potentiomtre by the volume and another tonality. The body is basswood, handle stocky, the color is turquoise mtalis with a white shield.

Finishing as excellent, I take a point for the color not to be got from everyone and particulirement mine ...


The game is pretty enjoyable, even for someone like me who is not a fan of sleeves pais, thanks a comfortable width. All is well equilibrated pluttlger. CSTA notes Aiges is correct for a low round with the 20 th s'arrte box.

Plug and play: you branches, you play. And sounds serious!

My rating takes into account once again got my staff, but may use more sduire fans sleeves pais.


The simplicity of the electronic music and its quality is recall the feeling of a real vintage bass. Without being versatile, the sound palette is wide, the SETTING THE Tone doing wonderful work. In everything that revolves around the rock is IDAL.

Uses a Hartke combo under test, and Marshall DBS 72115 live or silent she transplanted live (DI), the bte of did not. Good dynamic musical excellence me to try it boasts a larger config or in the studio!

The sound is simple and straightforward, the technical employee who play the rest. Nothing is perfect, so I put 9.


I use this bass for several days. I bought it in an emergency, my old Ibanez Seeing me lch. So I was looking for a bass that sounds cheap. Having tried several Cort, Ibanez or Squier others in this price range, I chose it because it stood out in the noise level and dynamic despite my rticence for color and the handle, but it is faster than having a sound mdiocre ...

With a report qualitprix bordering the indcence, I can advise that the raw thrill! A microphone, a coil, it's effective. Endpoint.

The overall score is the average of other suprieure because the price catches up with the small default aisment meeting.

A taste of vintage, simple and effective!

Made in China


Body in pine
Profile of the handle modern C-shape (width at nut 42 mm)
20 vintage style frets
Radius key 9.5 "/ 24.1 cm, maple, pitch 34" / 86.36 cm
Bridge type solid (not crossing), Brass with bridges


One single coil pickup, 1 volume control 1 tone control.


At first glance this instrument is well made and the factory setting correct.

Just one regret: I think the wood grain visible, very visible .. too obvious for my taste ....


As for the handle, I'm used to the jazz bass, and even if this Precision is slightly larger (42 mm instead of 38), the transition to this format does me no problem.

The weight of the instrument is very reasonable. Good ergonomics (no dip stick).

Access to Acute seems more difficult than on a JazzBass (but not going very often in the high ...).

Loving one's rocker, I served with the instrument and to my game, the range offered by the tone control me. After all, what I like the bass-like precision, is their simplicity.


As mentioned my favorite style is the Rock, and I do not use effects (apart from a touch of saturation).

This bass is an excellent choice for this style but few also make the case for other styles if coupled an equalizer, and / or effects.


I instrument for a few weeks and it is one of my favorite both for its looks as for its "voice" and its simplicity.

The price / quality ratio seems to me correct date, remains to be seen as and when it is used. I do it again (s) that choice without hesitation.

Mat62's review

Classic Vibe series (high-end home Squier)
Reissue of 50's model Fender
Made in China
Basswood body
Lake Placid Blue color, not to the liking of everyone
Channel 20 squares 34 "all maple 1 piece
1 micro Alnico single coil
1 Volume, 1 Tone


Very good for low finiton made in china
Not very heavy bass
Channel pleasant, but quite thick in the normal precision
Good access to acute
With simple electronics, count as two sounds, with or without the tone, but what sound ....


Its very vintage, soft and warm tone with the closed and very bright and open tone with crystalline
Great sound overall, it can almost do everything, even slap it sounds hell


It is now almost 4 months that I use, I'm still happy
I wanted a vintage bass for a reasonable price, well I'm satisfied
Really good value for money
The color can slow some, but the finish is really pretty, I think they should have to make a 2nd, a sunburst such as that of Sting
If you want a vintage bass not very expensive and you like precision, go there with confidence, you would not be disappointed.
