I have played many bass guitars and this one is definitely one of my top favorites. It both looks and sounds great. This bass has a very clean and bright sound. It’s hardware and pickups are very good quality, and the 3-piece body is seamless. I love playing this bass and I do so everyday. One of the best features about this bass is the price. For the quality of it, I would be willing to pay twice as much. Compared to a Fender Jazz bass, it is really the same thing, just stamped with Squier. I am expecting this instrument to last me for years to come.

I’ve had this bass for a few months now, and all I can say is that it’s probably one of the best basses I’ve ever played and/or owned. Right out of the box I could tell it was a quality instrument. Fit and finish were flawless, the action and setup were good, only requiring very minimal tweaking to get it to where I like it. The neck with the satin finish feels great, the fretwork was excellent. And the tone, with the Duncan designed pickups , has a definite vintage Fender vibe. On top of all that, with the natural finish along with the maple fretboard and the Block inlays and binding (don’t let anyone tell you they’re painted on, they are the real thing) this bass looks simply gorgeous. I would not hesitate to use this at a gig.
If you’re looking for a viable alternative to a “real” Fender Jazz bass at a reasonable cost, this is the bass you’re looking for. A good bass for beginner OR pro.

This Squir bass is pretty much enough for me becasue I’m not a bassist but a guitarist. Neck without transparent coating is susceptible to benting. I will try a neck-coated one next time but this guitar’s sound is just perfect.
