The legendary playability and versatility of the Fender Precision Bass is found in every inch of the Squier Vintage Modified Precision PJ electric bass. But don't call it a copy: this Vintage Modified bass sports its own unique features and style that would make any more expensive P Bass jealous.

Duncan Designed, Fender Approved

Loaded with a Duncan Designed split single-coil pickup and a fast C-shaped maple neck, the Vintage Modern Precision electric bass offers tight and responsive bass sound for just about any playing style. The Duncan Designed split single-coil pickups easily go from punchy and chunky rock tones to smooth R&B and funk tones without taking away from the dynamics of your playing. The expertly crafted and finely detailed maple neck is fitted with 20 Medium Jumbo frets and dot position inlays, so you can cover as much territory on the fretboard as you want without fatiguing your hand.

Classic P Bass Sound and Style

For rich low end and clear midrange tones, this Vintage Modern Precision bass is built with a lightweight agathis body that is tough and sturdy, perfect for endless jams and the trials of the road -- not to mention that classic P Bass body shape to show the crowd you mean business! And, at a 34-inch scale, the Squier Vintage Modern Precision electric bass feels sturdy without being difficult to play.

Vintage Modern Precision

Bass players looking for a unique tone will be pleased with the versatility this affordable Squier P Bass offers. The Vintage Modified Precision's pickup responds to your slightest tweaks of the single tone knob, producing a variety of tones to cut through any mix without sounding brittle or boomy. As functional as they are stylish, Fender's Chrome Dome control knobs make it simple to dial in your exact tone and volume settings, and their knurled design help them stay put so you don't have to be constantly minding your settings while you play.

Features:

- Lightweight agathis body
- C-shaped neck maple neck
- 20 Medium Jumbo frets
- Dot position inlays
- 34-inch scale
- Duncan Designed split single-coil pickup
- Chrome hardware
- Knurled Chrome Dome control knobs

Thick, but precise. Huge, but tight. Modern, but raw. Refined, but dirty. However you describe it, that unmistakable Fender P-Bass tone has defined the sound of electric bass for generations of musicians. It's time to pick up where your heroes left off and plug in the Squier Vintage Modified Precision electric bass.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If You Spent More For A P-Bass, You Ain't Gonna Be Happy With This Review!"
Sound: It sounds like a classic Fender P-Bass. It shouldn't, for the price, but it does! Perfect for Classic Rock, Blues, Soul and Classic R&B. Feature: Not real crazy about the agathis body, but for the money, a great value. The neck is as good, if not better than the Fender MIM P-Bass. The Duncan pickups do a great job. Ease of Use: It only has a volume control and a tone control. It's a P-Bass...that's all it needs! I slightly increase the lows and highs on my amp's EQ, roll back the tone control on the bass, and I've got the James Jamerson, Duck Dunn, Jack Bruce sound. That's it. Simple. Quality: The Squier Vintage Modified series are very, very good. I also own the Jazz version. Fit and finish is very good, hardware is average but acceptable, the Duncan pickups are excellent. The VM series are passive basses, so no batteries to mess with. The P-Bass pickguard is not the best. The satin finish on the neck feels a little inexpensive to me, but very smooth and very fast. There is an ever-so-slight neck dive due to the lightweight agathis body. Value: Bass Player Magazine recently rated the Jazz version as the Best All-Around Value, and this P-Bass cousin is just as good. Manufacturer Support: No experience. The Wow Factor: Personally, I'm not a big fan of the white w/ black pickguard, but for the 70's vintage look, Squier did an exceptional job. This is a very practical bass for live play or recording and it also makes a great backup for any situation. I'm gigging with it tonight. Overall: Squier has everyone talking about their VM series basses. Good quality, good value. I am very happy to own the P-Bass and Jazz basses. I do own more expensive basses, but for the money and then some, this is one healthy bass!
Style of Music: Classic Rock, Blues, Soul

"The new standard for entry level basses!"
Sound: For a Squier, it sounds AMAZING! I play many live shows with my band every month, and I always get good tone out of it. Also, it is great for a various styles of music! Feature: Not many features, its a P-Bass. The Duncan Designed pickups really give a good tone to the bass. It does the job, and does it well! Ease of Use: Set it up and play it! Quality: As far as I can tell, this bass is very well made. I have been playing a minimum of 3 or 4 shows a month since I purchased it, and between travelling and gigging, it has held up extremely well! If you took the name off the headstock, I would not be able to tell the difference from a legit Fender. Value: At under $300.00, I can't think of a better bargain on the market. This bass sounds better than the Fender (Mexico) P-Bass that I paid $450 for. Manufacturer Support: No problems with any Fender/Squier product I've ever owned, so I can't say from experience. The Wow Factor: The white on black finish looks sick, and the Duncan Designed pickups sound excellent! Overall: I recommend this bass to ANY beginner, and even to seasoned musician's on a budget. Also, it would make a great back up for live shows if you have much more sophisticated gear!
