When it comes to me I'm very loyal to fender ( squier included ) instruments and amps. It's all I play. I own many fender and squier bass's, guitars, and Amps. Other then being a musician I also am cursed in being a collector and I do own other brands as well, but they take a back seat to my fenders when it comes to playing. Fender for me has always just been the way to go,it has always provided the tone,feel,and looks to my satisfaction and needs. The instruments have the perfect feel, and most of the time the right tone. Nothing can come close. When it comes to fender, for me, it's the only brand I can say I would go to the end of the world with. Anyone in the same boat or if not let's hear your story.
