How does it work for different genres of music? very good quality, set-up was pretty good, had to set intonation a little, but action was very good Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? I was actually expecting something less, have no issues with this bass Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? action is fast, neck is smooth, easily fretted, no sharp fret wire on edges Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? tone is great, with the deep-range tone control adds more depth Finish How did the stain or paint job look? no issues looks good Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price?

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Great bass for the money. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Neck was perfectly set up. (I have played for 25 years and do all my own tech work) No flaws or bad/sharp frets on the neck. No fret buzz with low action. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? This bass has fantastic pickups with an active bass boost circuit. It sounds excellent through my Ampeg system. The pickups have that piano tone I love. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is wide,but comfortable. This had the best setup I have ever seen out of the box. Amazing. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Like I stated, I love the piano tone I can get with these pickups. The B string is well defined and not muddied. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? No finish flaws. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Bang for the buck must be Squier's new motto. For the money, this is one of the best 5 string bass I have owned. I like this Squier over the German Warwick Corvette I had. No kidding. Playability How was the action out of the box? Plays great, neck is excellent, no fret buzz or sharp frets to be found.
My favorite bass

General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is a great bass for the price. It demands to be heard. Ive been playing for 43 years and this is now my favorite bass. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality was overall good, this thing can get any tone imaginable, the bass boost circuit is wonderful. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Nice J bass type neck. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Punchy, big, clear. Nice bass boost circuit. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Got a lot more than I was expecting. Playability How was the action out of the box? Sucked really bad, be prepared to do a major set up for playability. But once that is done it is one awesome bass. Would love to see a maple fingerboard on this jewel.
