Yeah, I know-that's something you don't hear every day. Ok, now I know that mentioning I work at Guitar Center doesn't warrant a lot of fanbase here, but we just received a shipment of some new Squier Classic Vibe basses in yesterday. The 50's P was pretty decent, but the Jazz...holy s**t! The thing looks as nice as the American Standards, but maybe nicer, with the tint on the neck and all. The playability and sound are really spectacular, and again, on a Squier. The thing that impressed me the most was the construction, which is definitely better than the Am Standards-now that's f 'ed up. These are made in China, people. There are no gaps at the neck pocket, the single-coil poles line up almost perfectly with the strings, and the neck/fingerboard is the stand-out here. The neck is dead-on flat, with maybe a slightly high 10th fret and the playability is awesome. The action is nice and low (and I like LOW action) with NO BUZZ-yes, you heard that correct. I couldn't believe it-it must be a fluke or something. About the only thing I noticed was a little open string buzz on the A and D strings. I was imagining what this bass would sound like with some Bassline pickups and if I really wanted to mod this, something like a J-Retro 3-band...damn. The price is a steal for how nice this thing is, as I'm very tempted to grab it up (hopefully the salesguys didn't see it yet). I'm in Operations, so I receive stuff in and then the salesguys see it. I HAVE GAS FOR A SQUIER!
