It a Squier...says it right there.
Fender makes Squier, A Squier is a Fender.
95.3% of all Squier owners prefer them to Fender anyway.
Hence your avatar?
I'm not a Squier owner.
To be fair it does have Fender on the headstock
LOL! Yeah. Nice of them to include that footnote on the decal.
Was very excited to find a Fender Jazz bass for sale for under $200 and when I showed up to purchase, it was a Fender on the headstock but on the end, in fine print, it is labeled as a Squire series.
I don't how a Fender Squire series is different from a strait up Squire or a lower end Fender.
I ended up buying it and it mostly sits in my closet. It can be a solid backup. But I think I'd rather hold onto my old imitation P-bass to be my backup. Has sentimental value.
Every Squire bass I've come across has neck issues. This one is going to need a truss rod adjustment here soon.
From photo above:
"It's Fender's first true 5-string Precision"
That's not Fender?
I've yet to see one with neck issues...of course, I've only played a dozen or so.
Keep in mind, I live in a dry climate. I think that has something to do with it.
I didn't mean to imply that my anecdotal experiences on a limited set counted as evidence.
It only bugs me when I do searches for Fenders. Tons of Squires come up.
That's cool too, but sometimes I just want to zero in on Fender. Anyway...pfft..no big deal.
Don't think that they are trying to pass it off. The above picture is from the link you provided. The pic is the top right corner of the ad. If you were to buy this and think your getting something else without reading the entire ad then you get what you get.
I get what the OP is implying. They have it listed in the title as a Fender instead of a Squier. I doubt it was done to intentionally mislead customers but it could be confusing to someone who doesn't understand the difference.
I'm beginning to wonder if this ad header was a mistake or rather an example of a transition into using the Fender name much like Fender did with the Chinese Modern Player series. Could this be the beginning of a "folding" of their economy brands into the larger Fender name recognition family to help bolster sales in this market? Just wondering
I always correct the spelling of "Squier" - because often it leads to bad searches.
i believe it's spelled "skwyre" .... obviously this is a scam!
This is clearly an error in the heading and not a case of someone trying to pass something for what it is not. GC can be frustrating but they aren't going to set themselves up for this kind of trouble.
It is a Squier by Fender
