    Chef, try one, they are really awesome...fit and finish is fantastic, neck has 18mm spacing and is very comfy, just overall a great bass.

    I am really interested in these, but I would like to hear some feedback from someone who has spent some time with one of these in their hands.

    I played one the other day. It looked great! Olympic White with a maple, bound and blocked neck and a brown tort guard. Fit and finish was very good. B string was a little weak, in my opinion. But the bass needed a little set up. Worth the price of admission, I think.

    Was it a jazz neck or is this a configuration I've never seen?

    don't mean to highjack the thread, but I just rcvd a Squier VM Jaguar V 5 string 3tone burst today. Same neck/pickup as the Squier VM Precision V.

    FYI - the Jaguar V p pickup size is the same as my USA Am Std P V 5er - makes sense. the j pickup is 4" wide.

    nice bass as is, and looks to be great for mods. 5 string P/J, and plenty of room for a preamp. ;)

    No it was a precision neck. A configuration I've never seen either.

    Uhmn...not to be a buzzkill, but Fender doesn't make a bound & blocked 5 string P-bass neck. In fact, their only 5 string P necks are on the Am Std and the VM 5'ers. Both of which are dot inlay, no binding. The VM Jazz 5 is bound & blocked, though.
