    Congrats on the bass. My first bass was a Squire Bullet Bass, I still have it. Bought back in 85.

    good luck,you got yourself a nice bass there bud. my friend has a squier japan bass and its as good as some of the "higher-end" models,fender japan did a great job making the basses with a touch of craftsmanship & pride,(something some of our american companies seem to lack these days) they made the low end basses with the same care and workmanship as the "better bases".HAVE FUN:D

    thanks everybody. i dont know the difference between 62 or 57 reisue, pls inform me.
     
  5. The 57 has a maple fingerboard, the 62 has rosewood. There might be differences when it comes to neck shapes, body woods and pick ups as well, at least during the first years of production, but I'm not sure.
