The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass Guitar is a model that combines vintage aesthetic with modern appointments to give you traditional tone and modern reliability. Although considered a budget/beginner range don't let that fool you into thinking that these guitars aren't serious machines. Squier guitars work just as well for touring musicians as they do for the newbie and the Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass is no exception.
Classic Looks, Modern Spec
The body is constructed using Poplar that delivers solid feel with a fundamentally rich tone, whilst never feeling cumbersome. Poplar is a balanced and full-bodied tonewood lending itself well to a variety of styles. The low end is generous, with a deft midrange smack, and the highs shine through beautifully.
Fitted to the body is a one-piece Maple neck, giving this bass a soulful yet snappy tonality. With a slender 'C' profile you'll find your fingers glide over the Indian Laurel fretboard with aplomb. An easy-playing, 9.5-inch radius ensures you'll find big stretches and fast playing come with ease and the 20-fret fingerboard with pearloid dot position inlays complements the finish in style, whilst providing a useful navigational tool to ensure you never lose your way.
Powerful Electronics, Reliable Hardware
That soulful, classic sound of the much-loved 60s P Bass emanates from a single Fender-designed Alnico Single-Coil pickup controlled with a master volume and the master tone control. Designed for simplicity the Squier Classic Vibe 60s P Bass lets you get on with playing. The 4-saddle Vintage-Style bridge with threaded steel saddles meticulously anchors strings to uphold intonation, whilst the Vintage-Style tuning machines firmly hold strings in tune throughout each and every performance.
The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass represents staggeringly good value for money. From the deft curves modelled after the original 60s P Bass design to the crisp timbre of the tonewoods, from the tonal dexterity of the pickups to the exquisite playing feel, you'll wonder how you ever got by without one of these beauties in your hands.
