Excellent bass for beginners to professional players!

Lars_Wollaert, 19.12.2017
I bought this bass to play around with and I very much enjoy it!
The quality overall is good enough for intermediate to advanced players and certainly for beginners.

Pros:

-Finish is stunning and fits the bass very well, nice white colour and durable.
-fretwork is very nice, no dead spots, no buzz, nicely polished.
-tuners do their work very well, I can usually play for 20 minutes at least without it being noticebally out of tune. This is better than most of my basses.
-bridge is nice
-Came with a full setup: intonation was bang on, string arc matched the board well, action was a little high but very reasonable. The neck was perfectly straight.
-pickups sound full, warm and spunky.

cons:

-pots and jack feel a bit cheap but respond well. They are however something I would change for a serious player.
-knobs are plastic and fit a bit losely
-Action was a bit high. Of course this isn't realy a problem, the bridge allows you to change this to your preference.
-packaging from fender was the standard cardboard box with some plastic around the bass, not very pleasing. Thomann packaging was sturdy however.
-My bridge pickup was dead at first, not a good first inpression I must say. After sending an email to thomann all they said was to ship it back to Germany. It would have been nice to send me a replacement or help on how I could troubleshoot it. I didn't want to send a bass all the way back for it to come to me again, not good for the bass and the environment! After looking at it myself I was able to solve the problem by resoldering. This is most likely just a rare incident from the quality control at Fender, but for a novice something like this isn't exactly awesome..
-the screwhole for my upper strapbutton was a bit stripped and the button wasn't very secure.

Overall I would say this bass is great for the money, this isn't a 1500 dollar bass so a few tweaks are to be excepted. If you are a beginner or intermediate player this is defenitly an excellent instrument to learn on!
I absolutely love it!

Thomann is my favorite store, good service, good prices, large assortment, great shipping,..

Very good value

shandou, 26.08.2017
The only bad thing I can say about this bass is that one of the screws that adjusts the action had a defective face, so the allen key didnt fit in. That and the initial setup, however I have to point out, that the instrument was still in a playable shape :) and the intonation was perfect. After I set it up it plays great, sounds great, feels great and is otherwise a flawless instrument. I can forgive that tiny defect for such a low price.
In terms of fretwork and general feel it is slightly inferior to my Cort B4, but there is a significant price difference here. I am a finnicky bass player and still very satisfied with this one. I compared another VM model in a store to a $2200 Fender and I have to say that the Fender was in no way superior to the Squier. Same sound (qualitatively, they were a _bit_ different, but none sounded better than the other), same feel, same fretwork, same hum level etc etc.

While I don't have a problem with it, it is worth mentioning that the VM Squier is quite heavy because its body is made from maple.
