    I played a Squier Contemporary Active V string today and fell in love with it! I had all I could do from grabbing my card and buying it! If it wasn't for the fact I need to find another car I would have :/

    Surely dude, you dont not buy a guitar based on 1 review. I swapped from playing guitar for 25 years mainly Gibsons, needed a bottom mid price bass and picked this one. Quality was spot on for the price, sound was great and would highly recommend.

    I am more than willing to buy a new guitar/bass on a whim than a used one, because in the former case there is almost always a return policy.

    Hello;
    I bought the white one with black chrome trim!!. The new pickups are the bomb! Also I don't know if any one else has had this but my bass has sustain for days!!!!! I can play a note and it will just last and last! Thinking about one of those fret wraps to adjust that a bit!

    By “new pickups”, do you mean the stock pups or did you put aftermarkets in it?? Just curious.

    I think I would’ve picked one of these up a while back/by now. The white one. So cool looking imo. I ended up getting a CIJ Fender Geddy J bass sig (modded a lil ;)) then I got a G&L L2000 Trib and I’m GAS’d out atm. However, when I look at these J basses, I wants!!

    And about that action you got goin oh, that’s awesome!! Sounds to me like you simply got one with a good setup and a solid neck. Good stuff!! My last few bass purchases have been like that. Good on you though man! Congrats.

    Black is the only color for bass that looks good on a bass and my black bass is the best that's how I can tell it's such a good bass is that it is a black bass and loud and clear and black

    I have one of these and have no problem with it. Got from sweetwater. It is midnight satin and has a roasted maple neck. It shakes the house when plugged in. You should took that one back. But I think it deserves more credit. Mine is perfect.

    well I guess some of us have had better luck than others... you want a better review? write one up for your bass.
