When I say Squier I mean Vintage modified and Classic vibe series. I have a butterscotch VM precision with the Duncan design pickups which I love! And I just newly aquired a CV Inca silver Jazz Bass. These lovely basses are sitting in my living room with a Made in Mexico precision player bass. The Jazz does not have a hard shell case so it lives on a guitar stand. I live in Canada and winter has been here for the last week, very cold and dry weather so fret sprout season is here. Who sprouted the most? The MIM! And the CV sprouted the least! Maybe I’m wrong but better quality wood should shrink less in the winter? Also, both squiers are more balanced. The MIM is body heavy. And the MIM has a gap on the right side of the neck pocket that almost fits a 0.88 mm pick. Guess what? The squiers don’t and the neck isn’t to tight that the finish is cracking in the pocket either. I don’t know about anyone else this indicates to me that my squiers are better quality then the MIM. Also, I just recently sold a MIJ fender Jazz because I like the Way the CV sounded better. What is going on here?
