Squier captures the mojo and sound from that musically adventurous era with the Classic Vibe P Bass '70s.Squier's Classic Vibe '70s Precision Bass takes you back to the decade in which the Precision Bass cemented its place in music history. As popular music began to expand stylistically, so did the Precision Bass. Though already an iconic instrument and an industry standard at that point; players of all genres began to incorporate their "P Basses" in to their style. Whether it was progressive rock, country, or the rising metal and punk movements, the Precision Bass was embedded in the sound and style.
Features also include a basswood body, with the same contours you know and love, outfitted with the classic split single-coil pickup that made players put down their acoustic basses and never look back. Squier added a new twist to an old style by incorporating the Jazz Bass style block inlays and black binding on the fingerboard to the 1 piece C-shaped maple neck. This neck features a comfortable 9.5" radius and 20 vintage-style frets. Other vintage-style appointments include a bass-side thumb rest (first adopted in 1974), three-ply black-white-black pickguard, Laser Engraved Squier Neckplate, knurled dome control knobs (volume, tone), Four-saddle Hi-Mass bridge with brass “barrel” saddles and vintage-style tuners. Case not included.

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe P Bass '70S Bass Guitar:
I've become a big fan of the quality of the Classic Vibe and Vintage Modified lines, they're a good alternative to Fender's Standard series' more modern features and finishes. Because I had other, more pressing musical priorities, I hadn't gotten around to getting one of these.
Recently, after noticing this Bass was no longer on the Squire site for 2018, I decided to jump on it before it was too late. A few years ago I had my eye on the Squier Matt Freeman Precision but waited and missed that one (now they're tough to find and around $450 used if you do) so I wasn't going to miss this one too. This is essentially a Freeman with block fret markers.
The Bass arrived quickly and it was just as I'd hoped. The fit and finish were perfect. I grew up on '70's basses and the tinted, lacquered neck on this one is simply awesome. The body is basswood and I knew it'd be just a little on the light side (8.5 lbs) compared to what I'm used to, but after playing it, that's not even an issue. It feels substantial. Tuners feel fine. Pickup sounds just as I'd expect. Heavier bridge with brass saddles is better than what came on my '73 P for sure. The "ashtray" bridge cover is a nice touch too. I have no complaints with this Bass. The Classic Vibe series are highly playable, good quality instruments and this one will be doing shows soon. I'd urge you to get one of these before current stocks are gone, cuz it looks like so far, Squier's not doing a traditional Precision for 2018, just P/J's and the CV 50's P. If this Bass had a Fender decal, people would willingly pay more for it with no thought about doing so.
