Very good bass!

By tokko, 15/11/2013
-Assembled in China under American direction.
-Hi-mass bridge
Maple neck-gloss varnish.
Micro custom single-coil Precision Bass
-1 Volume
-1 Tone

I confirm it for well over Chinese frankly, because only assembled in China and not made a difference! It is also marked on the top of the handle.

UTILIZATION

The handle is comfortable to play, durable and beautiful (gloss varnish), the action is low original exactly what it takes.
The weight is light, 3.8kg.

The bridge is worthy, it's hi-mass, unlike the folded sheet on a low-end fender modern player jaguar 450 € .... no comment.
The lifts are reliable, tuning like a very long time.
Screws strap seem rather odd, because the profile is open .... which can make people believe that the strap will break, but it is nothing like it!

SOUNDS

The output level is frankly high, good excellent potato.
The pot. tone is quite progressive, it does a good job too!

The grain is beautiful, distinctive rock, PB forces, it is even more beautiful than American PB 2012 I tried the same Ampeg amp (SVT 3 Pro) band EQ to zero, and lacked a bit of potato ( for a fender! ...).
The tone in the background matt freeman is expressive, but happiness for my style pretty hardcore noise, noise rock.
She also defends not bad for registers as slap and groove although Jazzbass is more appropriate.

OVERALL OPINION

Fully satisfied, it is always a pleasure to play on it for 3 months I have.
Excellent value for money.

In short, a good bass Squier by Fender.

should bear the logo "Fender Precision Bass"

By boucaflou, 23/10/2013
Chinese bass bridge with brass saddles (non-editable string spacing)
amended by luthier Gambetta in Paris:
mechanical change at the top with the addition of a pressure Hipshot,
Adding a humbucker jazz easel
1 micro volume,
1 tone

UTILIZATION

I was used sleeves for 24 Asian boxes, satin varnish
but I'm getting used to handle C with American, gloss,
Personal, access to acute is me now, not terrible,
to find a sound, it's simple.

SOUNDS

it has its precision, perhaps with a little less presence / depth an American Fender, but less than 500 € ...
I find it much better than many other bass in the same price range

OVERALL OPINION

1 month trial is short, I will adjust my mind later,
I think I stumbled upon a model that is perfect for discovering the world at a lower cost Fender,
I have not found it lacking finishing
it is light, has his own personality, a pretty face,
the belt fasteners are large,
for "defects":
shiny black guard fingerprints, but a bit of a soft cloth, and it disappears ...
in the future, I may ascend microphones Hepcats for a more "old-fashioned"
the spacing of the strings that can not be changed disturbs me a bit, maybe I'll bring a change,
To be continued ...

VERY VERY GOOD SURPRISE

By gigi74, 06/08/2011
Chinese-made
Poplar body (beautiful vintage white pick black), a superb round mapple old varnish top! (Nothing to do with the stuff of pissy SX and others)
Synthetic bone nut very well finished and perfectly positioned high on the ropes the first fret.
bridge hi-mass as the CV (golden bridges)
chrome buttons (volume and tone)
20 medium frets and well finished
2 microphones "custom" split coil squier
The bass is very well adjusted with a certificate indicating the height of each string clearly squier check by an employee. A good place for beginners and do not want to engage in settings. The action is very low with no frieze.
Under the plate nothing to report, it's clean and well insulated.

UTILIZATION

PB type handle but thin enough in mapple beautiful, old varnish is very successful, the joint body handle is beyond reproach.
The bass is light, about 3.8 kg
It was the sound of a (good) accuracy, the strings are fender, it sounds good but I would put the DR soon.
The conventional mechanical tuning takes no worries
the frets are very well adjusted, nothing exceeds the butter.

SOUNDS

It growls very well, nice surprise on that side! the sound clips thomann site are quite faithful to the sound I get on my stack gallien 1001rb.
I considered replacing the knobs work great, the race is even, the tone can deliver very effective fine treble for a PB.
Matt Freeman is a punk bassist but PB has the full range of sounds one would expect from a PB.

OVERALL OPINION

three weeks of use, complete the palette of sounds of my Fender Jazzbass 5, warwick corvette in my 5. I have owned 5 other basses in the past. I play for over 20 years.
most excellent value for money, great look (I did not like the colors of the CV), great sound (if you like PB ...).
I wanted a small 4-string that sounds, I am satisfied.
