    Just thought I'd post something that I thought was very cool. For the second time, I've encountered a classic vibe series bass with a a perfectly quartersawn neck. Fender doesnt even use wood like this on the American deluxe basses. One would have to go all the way to a custom shop series. The use of quartersawn wood in the Squiers seems to be luck of the draw though. The two other CV basses in stock were regular flat sawn maple.

    One out of three. But it's the second I've come across in five or six that have come thru that store that I know of. Like I said it's just luck of the draw I'm sure but cool nonetheless.

  7. Yea, there seemed to be alot of them used on the strats as well. It's something I look for when I'm checking them out.

    I know this is an old thread, but I just got a Classic Vibe Jazz in January and, yes, the neck is quartersawn. There is no skunk stripe either. Great budget bass too, BTW.
