Japanese Squier Club??

  1. Should we, could we?? I know there's a few fans of these basses out there. Putting them all in one thread could be interesting :)

    Here's mine. Came stock with a white pickguard and a different control plate. I still have the originals, I just liked this look better.

    They still seem to be a relatively well kept secret. Sometimes I see them for sale by people who don't realize that they are desirable. You just have to learn to spot them.

    Since I forgot to mention it in the first post, mine's an 82.
     
  5. That's a beautiful Jazz! I'm not a big Jazz bass fan but if I ever see a nice JV era Jazz, I'll be on it :)

    Where's the rest of the Squier Japan folks??

    Just picked up an "A" serial P Bass (which translates to '85, I think), and it's sweet. I'll go take some pics and be back to join the club!

    Man, this is a nice bass. It's got all the advantages of feeling like a worn-in 25-year-old bass (which it is), without the disadvantages that many US Fenders from this era can have.

    The MIJ Squiers are awesome basses. Every time i pickup my 83' P bass i fall in love with it all over again. The neck is perfect and the action is superlow w/flats. The tone is better than almost any P bass i have played and it has that magic vintage,vibe and mojo. I can understand now what i never understood or knew about until i finally found one and bought it. Maybe we should keep this all under our hats..Hummm?

    My JV Precision '57 -83

    Killer deal, payed 260 euros (~335 USD) for it at local music store.

    It's my main bass nowadays.
