Worth the money at this price anyway

18.11.2014
I bought this bass as a gigging instrument so that i dont need to take my fender jazz out of the studio, a quick word about the fender as that is what i'm about to compare it with, its a 2011 mexican standard with maple neck, seymour duncan quarter pounders, an audere preamp unit and hipshot high mass bridge, it has the tonal power to sound just like a double bass when you record with it and is my pride and joy, now weve got that out of the road a word about the squier - its lighter than the fender by a good couple of pounds which makes it far easier to stand and play for a couple of hours if like me you are prone to back ache (i'm getting old now!), out of the box it needed some minor setup work (lower action and adjust intonation) but not an awful lot needed to be done at the bridge end and the neck adjustment from the factory was absolutely bang on, when i bought my fender i needed to adjust the truss rod to get the action right so no complaints on that front, the only out of the box problem was that the nut was seated a little higher in the neck than i would have liked on the E side and seems to run at and angle towards the G side, five minutes with a file will sort this out and i will get on to it as soon as i need to restring the instrument, a very minor complaint indeed,, now onto playability- the squier is a fine instrument for the money by anybodies standards, it doesnt have the tonal variation of my mexican but i didnt expect it to at the cash i payed, it is however a very formidable instrument none the less and as this bass cost me less money than the preamp in the mexican i can only say that on the sound side of things i was very surprised with the variety of sounds which it can make, ive read in other reviews that the slap switch is not a very useful addition but i beg to differ, switch it on and you better have a decent amp to play through or you;ll end up busting your speaker if you have any volume coming out of the instrument worth speaking about, i have tended to play it with the bass and midrange turned right up the treble turned down as far as it will go and a slight bias to the bridge pickup if i'm playing finger style, if you are into rock or blues then this will suit you down to the ground, turn the slap switch off though and turn the treble up to about half way and you can get some real funky slap bass action on the go, its that versatile really, the finish of the instrument is not quite up to the standard of the mexican but the mexican was three times the price new and i do appreciate that you will get what you pay for on the materials and build quality front. all in all i'm very satisfied with my purchase (a lot more satisfied than i expected to be given my other instrument) and would recommend this instrument to anyone from novice to experienced player, in fact i will go as far as to say that the more experienced you are the higher the regard you will hold it in for the cash it costs just now. i paid just under £220 for this and locally that will buy you an affinity model, our good friends from germany have done us all a favour with this deluxe active model, my last word is a piece of advice- grab yourself one of these while they are so cheap, i can guarantee you that you wont regret it.

Super Active Jazz Bass!

24.09.2014
Fantastic Jazz Iv bass with super silky ebanol fingerboard. Light gauge strings make this sing and with the bass boost switch you can get a passive thump or an active brightness so easily. Like a standard Jazz bass but on steroids. Very powerful pickups and easy to dial in any tone. Through a chorus pedal or fretless simulator patch you can get very authentic tones
