    Hi, I was at the local music shop today, tried a number of Squiers, really liked them. One that they didn't have in stock was the Standard P Bass Special. You can see it here at this link:

    This looks like a pretty sweet deal (would cost me a bit more, I'm in Canada).

    Wondering if anyone has played these, seem to capture some of the nice elements of the P and J Squiers, including both pups. Any opinions would be welcome, I'm considering getting the store to order one for me.

    Thanks,

    Hinto.

    I still like it as much as I did (I've had it for a few months). No mods yet, though the strings that came with the bass were replaced immediately for being too thin.

    I'm a big fan of PJ's and there is nothing at all wrong with Squiers! Some look down on them because they don't cost big bucks, but they are a good sounding, solid bass! You might try Rondo.com and look at the SX. Another solid bass for not alot of money.

  7. I had one and even stock it was a good bass
    the hardware was decent
    and if anything modding it is super easy AND cheap
     
  8. @Hinto - I'm Canadian also. Somethings that will save you some money, before buying from your local shop. Read the Classifieds in the area you live. Also, although we cannot purchase new Fender Instruments from US, we are allowed to buy used instruments through MF (and other dealers.) That used rule alone should save you some money.

    Something you could also try is bring a printed copy of the MF price & ask if your local shop can match the price. Even if their reply refers to USD, remind them that our CAD and USD have been pretty much equal these days/months.
