    No experience with them at all. Sure is a looker though. I have a rosewood board Fender version and it's my main player.

    I'd have gone with the rosewood fret board. Other than that, awesome!

  4. They're really good, and surprisingly: no floppy B-string (which is special at this low of a budget)

    IMG_1664.JPG Great value for the price! I own one. Modded it a little but it sounds good right out of the box. Get a set up by someone good and your strings of choice and you should be good. Mine now has a Hipshot bridge and Nordstrand pickups in addition to the new pick guard.

    I already have a Fender P with rosewood fretboard and a squire Jazz seluxe active 5 with a phenolic fretboard. This'll be my first with a maple fretboard.

    I have many maple fretboards. Others too but if I have a choice maple is my favorite.

    The rosewood version spells Squier with an "F," so it is at a whole different price point.

    I had one, and it was a great bass. I ended up letting it go because I just prefer a Jazz or modern bass more than a Precision.

    Do you happen to have one of your videos demos of one floating around somewhere?

    The top three are clips of me on my old VM P5, the last clip is me on a Fender Pro series Precision V.

    Nice bass! A few small upgrades like pickups and having well set-up will make all the difference

    I had one and thought it was great. I didnt have a problem with any of the construction or feel of the neck. I sold it because i had no use for a 5 string P.

    I bought a Squier 4 string VM online and returned it 5 minutes after opening the box because of the neck dive.
