Classic vibe with modern refinements.

The Squier Classic Vibe Precision Bass '50s delivers a unique playing experience both in terms of sound and feel. This larger neck and wider string spacing (1.65") of the P Bass promote strong pocket playing with a warm, earthy tone that is supportive and inviting. And you can have the unique voice of the Squier Classic Vibe Bass in your electric bass arsenal at an amazing price.

The beautiful finish over a basswood body is an eye catcher for sure, while its custom 'original' single coil Alnico V pickup delivers that old school, '50s P Bass tone. Open gear tuning machines sit atop a gloss 20-fret maple neck, both solid and stable. Modern refinements such as the flatter 9-1/2" radius and HiMass 4 saddle bridge make this bass more user friendly in terms of setup and playability. A winner with killer looks and a unique voice!

Classic Vibe!
Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and 'vibe'. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct — but rather imparting the 'vibe' of a classic Fender design. Each with distinctive feature set combinations — all adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value —Classic Vibe!

Definetly a Classic Vibe

By Steven Keon

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Precision '50s Bass Guitar:

Bang for the buck. That's what we're all looking for and that's what the Squier Classic Vibe Precision '50's bass delivers.

Gloss neck and fretboard promote easy hand movement while the action makes fretting easy. The PUP reprlicates that original P-Bass (Telecaster bass) sound. Punchy, definitve notes with nice warm, round undertone is what you'll hear. No volume or tone issues here! This bass cuts through in a mix either live or in the studio. Smooth volume and tone controls with knurled, dome knobs. The tuners hold pitch well. A big difference in this bass than the Fender MIJ 51reissue bass (I own one as well) is that the tuners are not reverse tuning like the MIJ (or the original from the 50's). That's actually a positive because most basses tune UP as you turn away from the body.

I bought this as back-up/practice instrument in place of my 51 reissue, but I use this to record and play out as much as the '51. People see me pull the Squier out and often raise an eyebrow, but once they hear it, they understand why it gets as much play as I give it.

Highly recommended for about a third of the price of the Fender.
