As classic as it gets

The Precision bass is one of those instruments that can truly be called a classic - after all, it has been in continuous production and remained virtually unchanged since 1957. Why? Because THAT's how good it is. The Precision dispenses with superfluous features in favour of a simple and reliable combination of a split-coil pickup and passive electronics, delivering a tone that is full of character and has plenty of punch and low end, so it is at home in all manner of styles, from Motown to Metal. The original was of course created by Fender, whose Squier brand also offers musicians on a budget an affordable way to get their hands on one of these classic instruments. The Classic Vibe 60s Precision is no exception and re-creates the look and sound of Fender's 1960s Precision basses.

All the features you need

The basic building blocks of any instrument are the woods used in its construction. The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision features a poplar body and a maple neck complete with a 20-fret Indian laurel fingerboard. The punchy sound with which Precision basses are synonymous is delivered by the split-coil pickup, which sits centrally between the bridge and fingerboard and is governed by a single control each for volume and tone, making both Rock sounds and smoother, more old-school tones possible. The nickel-plated hardware includes a set of vintage-style machine heads and a bridge with four individually adjustable saddles. The neck, which has a comfortably rounded "C" profile, is finished in an appealing vintage tint, which together with the dark colour of the fingerboard and the classic Three-Tone Sunburst body finish, perfectly replicates that 60s vibe.

An affordable workhorse

While many modern basses feature a wealth of knobs and switches, many players want just the opposite: A simple and straightforward bass that does its job without getting confusing - a workhorse that sounds great in any situation, in other words. And that is exactly what the Precision Bass is and does: Simply plug in and you're ready to go. The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision is the obvious choice for those who want the look and sound of a classic instrument, but musicians who only occasionally perform bass duties will also find it an interesting option, since the Precision Bass has proven capable of handling virtually any style of music.

About Squier

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Incidentally, Squier has existed as a company since the 19th century. It supplied Fender with strings right from the start, before being acquired by the company in 1965. Fender has been producing its iconic guitar and bass models at beginner-friendly prices under the Squier brand since 1982.

In the footsteps of James Jamerson

Compared to those with maple fingerboards, Precision Basses with fingerboards made from darker wood have a softer sound with a less pronounced high-end response, and although they fit stylistically into virtually any type of music, will be particularly at home in 60s Soul and Motown (all the more so with the tone control rolled back and perhaps even a foam mute placed under the strings). And bassists looking for absolute authenticity can also opt for a set of flatwound strings, which complement the Precision bass perfectly and make it easy to achieve a sound reminiscent of James Jamerson and Co.

Great, fun and fantastic!

First of all, you can’t go wrong with the Precision-bass design. It will always stand as a great example of how perfection shall look like. This bass is sounds very good. The pickups sounds great, and gives you the punch of a classic electric bassound that we’re all looking for. The beautiful combination of the sunburst and pickguard, is for me, breathtaking. Looks very vintage. Some people have complained about dry fingerboard, and I can honestly say, that I don’t know what they are talking about. Of course it may be induvidual, but my bass has a nice, flat fretboard, and doesn’t need to be oiled with anything. It does not cost too much, and then you may expect some minor fauls here and there, but then I’ve also heard stories about very expencive Gibsons which also has some markings.
I have no problems with the tuners. This is a great bass, and one should be careful with listening to what other means about all (tuners, pickups, strings) before you’ve actually had a chance to play it.
Buy this, if you are looking for a beautiful bass, which of course The classic vibes in fact are! You don’t need to change a thing. Of course, I added some bridge- and pickupcovers, cause I love the look of that, especially with those collours.

After a good setup it's your perfect bass!

I always wanted a P bass and after watching gazillion reviews on YouTube I ended up with this bass. It was a good choice. I will only be using it in the studio, and for recording/songwriting this bass is more than perfect.

The quality seems good, but one thing is important keeping in mind when ordering this bass: you will need to set it up, because out of the box it was a bit weird. The neck needed adjustment, the bridge needed adjustments and the intonation was off. I expected a better setup, but for me this wasn't that big of a deal, I could do it. After a one hour long setup process (the fret board needed some lemon oil, it was very dry...), my bass got very good, it has now its full potential. Although I am a guitar player, I can't put it down, this bass is so much fun to play.

I was after this classic P bass look. It's so beautiful, although the wood of the body has some strange "flames".

I can recommend this bass. After a good setup it's your perfect bass!

My first
makkker 23.09.2019
This is my first bass guitar. After trying some JB-s and P-s I decided to with this, because this is my sound. This particular model beautifully, flawlessly built. The sound is perfect, I love it and use it so much. Perfect for every style I'm playing. I was afraid I'd miss the sharp, edgy, indie-like bass tone of the jazzbasses, but I don't. I can't say enough times, how good this is. I'm perfectly satisfied.
And thanks for the good service for thomann, as always. :)

High quality bass that's amazing to play.
Emma O'Hara 30.06.2022
I've been considering getting a bass for quite a while and finally decided on getting one.
This bass is fantastic for its price point. I had no issues when it arrived, everything worked and the neck was perfect. It sounds great, it has a smooth tone to it. I'm very impressed with the quality though the frets were slightly dry, that isn't a big issue.
The bass was good to go out of the box, I didn't find it to need any set-up. The pickups sound great and the bass itself has a lovely tone!
I would highly recommendcommend this bass to anybody who is looking for a high quality bass with a reasonable price tag. :)
