Excellent, wallet-friendly bass
Basses High, 16.11.2019
I use this bass in my bedroom studio where it serves it's purpose very well. It's usually plugged into an audio interface and is then recorded into my DAW.

Sound:
Great sound is somewhat subjective, but it sounds really good to my ears. It definitely sounds like something more expensive. Vintage and modern sound alike, this one got you covered.

Playability:
Although great sounding, I wouldn't bother if I don't enjoy playing it. I only have satin necks (guitars) so I was a bit hesitant to go for a glossy neck, but it feels quite nice to play and the slim neck provides great reachability and comfort even in the lower register. The bass also nicely set-up when it arrived. It didn't have any fret buzz and the action was near perfect for my liking.

Build Quality
The build quality feels durable and solid. The plastic caps on the volume and tone knobs feel like cheap plastic, which they most likely are, but the knobs themselves turn effortlessly and smoothly.

Appearance
What can I say, this bass looks lovely. The body finish is a lot darker than I had expected, but maybe that's just this one in particular. It turned out great though, because I don't have a "tanned" headstock like the one in the pictures.

Value
It's a cheap bass that sounds great, plays great, feels great and looks absolutely stunning. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful but...
AndiBass EST, 22.09.2019
Main employment of my new Squier bass will be home practicing and as backup instrument on stage and rehearsals.

I have been fascinated about the look of former Squier VM and now the new CV 70s natural finish models. Mine looks even better than on the pictures. Neck has beautiful grain, two-piece body parts match with each other perfectly.

Unfortunately I'm quite disappointed about the quality. Most noticeable shortage is the poor fretwork. The frets are uneven and without additional leveling work the string action has to be set quite high to avoid fret buzz. Unfortunately the beautiful binding has rough grinding wheel marks on it. Maybe some polishing helps. I am usually not picky about tuning machines but this time i am seriously considering to replace them because they move hard. The nut seems to be made of the cheapest plastic available. Luckily it's not hard to find replacement parts.

The sound of CV 70s J-bass was really nice surprise. Only thing to point out is that the 70s pickup spacing misses roundness of fundamental tone. My intention is to use this bass mostly for slapping. Both pickups full or bridge pickup turned down a bit gives punchy and clear sound.

Fantastic instrument
jv0521, 03.01.2020
I am a complete beginner, I bought this bass with the intention to learn from the ground up. I play at home and don't plan to gig with it.

The bass looks stunning, sometimes I catch myself simply admiring it instead of playing. The neck feels very nice to play on, even as a beginner it's very playable.

I have no experience with other basses, but it might be interesting to point out: I find the instrument quite heavy, so I would definitely recommend using a good strap with it.
