"Amazing Bass for the Money"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have been a bassist for over 15 years, but I have stuck mainly to four strings. I love my Fender basses. I have played a few five strings here and there, but could never get used to the narrow string spacing. This bass is excellent. The string spacing feels like a Jazz Bass...not smashed together. I regularly gig with two Fender Jazz Basses, and this Squier feels just as good as they do. Very good quality instrument. Smooth neck, no rough fretboard edges, reassuring weight, and the pickups sound just as good as MIM or even an American Fender.
Sound
I play heavier music, and this bass feels right at home...but I have no doubt it could do anything you need it to. It is a Jazz Bass after all!
Features
Neck feels great, pickups sound good, and the bound neck with the block inlays looks incredible.
Ease of Use
One volume for each pickup and a master tone knob. Those three knobs can give you a wide array of tones to fit any musical style.
Quality
The Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass V seems to be just as high quality of a lot of basses three times the price point.
Value
Probably one of the best five strings you are going to find at this price point.
Musical Background:
I am a semi-professional bassist, with about 16 years of experience.

"Amazing bass!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This bass feels amazing and plays like an American Made Fender! I’ve owned a Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V and to be honest the build quality felt a lot like this bass does at such an affordable price! Sounds a lot like a 70’s Fender and has a very natural tone to it! Love my Squire!

"Surprisingly good"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
For the price range there are a lot of pros to this bass. Its got some serious tone to it, i wasn't expecting to get the tone i have gotten out of it, the neck feels smooth, really comfortable to play sitting or standing.The only con i can really think of, the neck is heavier than the body, which is a little irritating to me.

"Wow!! What a beauty!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This one of the best basses you are gonna get for this price point, even at a higher price. Squier has gone above even the high quality they have been known for in the past few years. This bass has a really nice feel to it and the sound us 100% Jazz bass.The fit and finish is perfect. It feels like an authentic Fender.I highly recommend it. Just switch the bridge for a Hip shot Kickass bridge and the strings for Rotosounds and you are set.Its Squier heaven.
