    Is there a difference?

    Squier
    MIM
    CIJ
    Rock Band
    MIA

    Or is it a toss-up?;)

    FYI, I have heard the vintage Rock Band ones (2007) are better than the current ones (2008).

    I can't say I've ever heard of a "Rock Band" Fender in my 15 years of playing bass. I've never read about it here either. What am I missing here?

    It's funny how many of these Rock Band and Guitar Hero players think they're playing the real thing. I had one 12 year old, who has reached the advanced level on GH (wow), ask me why I played bass instead of guitar.:rollno:

    but american fender is better, i played one when bought my squier and the sound is more clean, more "fender", but i like the squiers too...
    these others i don't ever heard about...

    I prefer the older GH to the RB. the paddles are sturdier and more accepting of fingerstyle plucking, and the addition of a cable helps remind the player of that fact that it's a ****ING PIECE OF PLASTIC game controller.

    That said, I freakin' love playing drums on Rock Band.

    :D

    You haven't played bass for very long right?

    Squier = Fenders cheapy brand.
    MIM = Made in Mexico.
    CIJ = Crafted in Japan.
    Rock Band = Gay plastic without strings.
    MIA = Made in America.

    I have played a Fender / Squier form all those places pretty much.
    The best bass i have ever played (The best for me and my style that is..) is a MIA Fender Jaguar Red. :smug:
    Such a great bass. And the price is hard to beat.
    They are ugly tho, so i might buy all the electronics and put them in too my CII Squier VM Jazz.

    When people who are really good at guitar hero/rockband think that they can play the real instruments, they just amuse me. They don't even know how to read tabs. >.>

    well it's not really hate, it's more of a thing that's frowned upon. But the elitism part is true for me I guess. :bag:
     
  17. From my understanding they're all MIJ/CIJ, Fender only imports the black and red ones. They have white and sunburst in Japan. Just do a search, I'm sure this has be discussed before.

    :hyper:It was a parody on the typical weekly thread "which is better, CIJ, MIM or MIA?"

    We actually have Guitar Hero at home. I don't play it much but my daughter does. At least it exposes her to some good music on occasion.
