    What do you guys think of squire?
    Should I buy one for my next bass?
  2. No such thing as a Squire.

    What do you have now?

    Unless you have some home made bass made out of a milk carton and some rubber bands, it'd be more logical to save up for something a little higher end... a MIM fender or something at least.

    +1. If you get a MIM fender, it will be higher quality, and will have a much higher resale value.

    But try before you buy! As with most things, you will find dud Fenders!

    What he said. If you are stuck on Squier then look for the ones made in Indonesia (P-Bass Special). They tend to be better quality than the Chinese ones.

    Definitely dont buy another Squier. And it puzzles me how even people who OWN a Squier, spell it Squire. Dont you ever look at the headstock?

    If you watch the used market, you can nab a gently used Mexican Precision for the cost of a new Squier.

    Is the used market like the pawnshop or something else?

    That was a real n00b question

    there's a for sale section here with lots of used stuff at pretty good prices (mostly). www.bassnw.com has a used section, www.basscentral.com , www.basspalace.com too, your local sam ash and/or guitar center should have some used stuff as well as many other music stores.
