Kind of ironic but I actually just started to listening to Taking Back Sunday and I remember for sure seeing bassist at the time Matt Rubano using what looked like a Affinity Series Squier Jazz bass in the music video for "Sink into me." It's kind of a cool video, but as soon as that black stuff (oil, paint, tar?) starts to come out you truly understand why at least for the video he uses the Squier and not his American made Fender Jazz.
I am sure there are actually more videos out there where bassists/guitarists use "less expensive" counterparts in them, especially if there in situations in the video where the bass/guitar may take some damage or even be destroyed. It's kind of one of those little things where you rewind going back and back looking and finally seeing and saying "holy cow that guy is playing a Squier!"
(Not harping on Squier, I have owned plenty of them myself and nowadays they are actually making some pretty great basses, especially in the classic vibe and modified models
