4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Outstanding Bass"
Sound: I've almost always been a Fender player, so this bass works well with my playing style, which I developed on a similar Squire. The action was low out of the box, no fret buzz, no additional noise, so I can say it responds perfectly to my playing. I've played it in country and rock bands and it covers the low end beautifully in the different settings. The pickups are a little hot for a passive bass, which in this case I actually like. Feature: The closest thing I have to a complaint is that the tone knob doesn't seem to make a whole lot of difference: meaning, there's not a lot of variance between all the way up and all the way down. At least, not to my ears. Others have heard it and disagreed, so maybe it's just me. Ease of Use: Mine was perfect right out of the box. As far as playability goes, it's one of the best I've owned. Maybe a little heavy, but then it's a 5-string Jazz, so the weight is about standard. Quality: This thing is actually quite stout, as one would expect of a good Jazz bass. I can tune it up and leave in the car for a week between shows, and it'll still be in tune. I'm impressed with the quality of this bass, and others have been as well. I've had it almost a year (and have used it heavily) and it still looks and sounds new. I expect it to last for decades, at least. Value: The could have slapped a "Fender" logo on it and charged $600 more. It's that good. Manufacturer Support: No idea, as I've never had to call them. The Wow Factor: I was first attracted to it by the 70s styling (the maple fretboard with black inlays, in particular). Also loved the "natural" (although closer to a Butterscotch Blonde, in my opinion) finish. Just a good-looking instrument. Overall: Overall, I love this bass. I've been using mine as my primary gigging instrument for about 100 gigs now, with zero issues. And when you factor in the price, I'm astounded that every bass player in the world doesn't have one.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent option for the money!"
Sound: I'm not a Fender user however, I wanted to get one so that I could have a 2nd bass to use at gigs and for certain sound. I figured in getting this particular one because it has the Duncan pickups and it looks much better than the Squire I played 15 years or so ago.For the price this bass rocks!! I changed the strings lowered the action a little and it really plays well. I was very surprised. Feature: The hardware seems to be more than adequate for this bass and price point. It tunes well and it stays in tune. Ease of Use: For the price it is a great bass. For not being a Fender player I had to get used to it. Quality: For the money it is put together pretty well. The color is really nice. Value: This bass is excellent for the money. You can't go wrong! Manufacturer Support: Can't comment as I have not had to use customer service.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
