    With rounds, I would argue for the Yamaha, but it would probably be a draw, depending on which one YOU liked better. But, with flats, I would have to recommend the CV P-bass. I want one of these as well.

    Couldn't have imagined GASing for a Squier, even 3 years ago. Now, there are 3-4 different Squiers I would proudly rock. How about that?

    squier CV60s for flats, bb414 for steel rounds.

    i have the squier and had the bb414.
    still miss the bb414. great bass for rock with pick. but not so good with flats.

    a pbass with flats makes sooooo much sense.
    its a sound all its own.

    vote for the CV

    Try the yamaha. It's a great bass, I use flats on mine and it rules.

    Wish I could try one out before buying. Where I live the shops stock next to nothing. I'm heading back to Canada for a month this summer - had a great renting experience from Long & McQuade, so I might just rent both to see how they feel. I've never played a Pbass for more than 5 minutes, and I'm wondering if I'll be able to get used to the neck.

    THe Squier CV is a fine, well-made, light and comfortable Bass. The are WELL made. I gave mine up :crying: as a token for my wife's uncle helping us with the flood 3weeks ago. We lost many items, no instruments thankfully.He was excited.

    Even though I just purchased a 50's Fender; the CV is a different animal, and I already miss it.
    You won't be sorry.
