Fender Squire P-Bass 5-string Reviews
Bought new at Toews Music in Abbotsford, BC
$399 cdn (approx $250 US)
I've been playing bass for about 34 years.
Nice close action right off the rack. I'll probably adjust it a bit more. String spacing seems nice for a five string. It is the first five string I have owned. I just sold a Gibson Les Paul Bass and didn't know what to expect from a cheaper ubit. I was pleasnantly surprised. Good old-fashioned fender-feel to it.
Tuning pegs are not as good as My Les Paul Bass, but that's to be expected with a $200 price difference. I'll eventually upgrade the pegs. No other complaints.
Excellent finish as far as paint goes. Naturally, a painted finish is not going to show imperfections like a natural finish would, but they fave done an excellent job. I wish my car looked as nice.
Neck is smooth and uniform. That's what counts.
I'm happy with my purchase. Although I only made the change for financial reasons, and just wanted a cheap bass to keep my chops up, I wouldn't hesitate to take this into the studio.Mr. "C"
