I traded a squire the other day for a traben even up. i should have known better to figure just because a bass cost more it would be a better bass. the finger board is seperating on this, the electronics are extremely noisey, and it over all sounds like crap. geuss i should look at the upside i almost bought a havoc 5 before i got my p bass, dodged a bullet there. hanser customer service is non existant. hopefully some kid will think this looks cool and i can trade up for something of higher quality like a first act or rogue. i miss my old squire.
