    The Squier Vintage Modified Precision V: $299 to your door...
    I'm about ready to try one just on principle.

    Reports from the field appreciated!

  2. Chef, try one, they are really awesome...fit and finish is fantastic, neck has 18mm spacing and is very comfy, just overall a great bass.

    I'm not gigging and just bought a bass last night, but that red and maple look so good! Plus, the VM Jazz basses I've played were really nice.... ahhh hell maybe I'll order one next week...

    I am really interested in these, but I would like to hear some feedback from someone who has spent some time with one of these in their hands.

    I played one the other day. It looked great! Olympic White with a maple, bound and blocked neck and a brown tort guard. Fit and finish was very good. B string was a little weak, in my opinion. But the bass needed a little set up. Worth the price of admission, I think.

    Was it a jazz neck or is this a configuration I've never seen?

    don't mean to highjack the thread, but I just rcvd a Squier VM Jaguar V 5 string 3tone burst today. Same neck/pickup as the Squier VM Precision V.

    FYI - the Jaguar V p pickup size is the same as my USA Am Std P V 5er - makes sense. the j pickup is 4" wide.

    nice bass as is, and looks to be great for mods. 5 string P/J, and plenty of room for a preamp. ;)

    No it was a precision neck. A configuration I've never seen either.

    speakin of wednesday, I get my used black MIM Fender Jazz Deluxe from the big brown truck. I'm so gonna over mod it startn with drillin holes to make it string thru- after that the unecessary bridge replacement followed by the new demarzio ultra jazz 5's and new preamp just because I can! ... of course I gotta hide it cause the ole lady says shes gonna kill me for previous GAS.

    Did you get the bass yet Vincent... if so, how is it?
     
  19. Uhmn...not to be a buzzkill, but Fender doesn't make a bound & blocked 5 string P-bass neck. In fact, their only 5 string P necks are on the Am Std and the VM 5'ers. Both of which are dot inlay, no binding. The VM Jazz 5 is bound & blocked, though.
