The moment I met my Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass V As some have read here, I have found (non-boutique) 5-string P-basses hard to come by. Craigslist flakiness cost me a white one; last-minute eBay shenanigans cost me a red one; but Reverb finally came through! I wouldn’t have gone sunburst-and-tortoiseshell if I could afford to be picky, but I pulled the trigger as soon as I saw it (figuring ‘twas Father’s Day Eve and I deserved it!), and I don’t regret it. It might turn black-with-black-guard some day, as the wood under the burst doesn’t look extraordinary, but I finally have this sound and feel in a five and I love it. Stay tuned for mods, though, haha.
