    Squier Precision Bass (Made in Japan)Published on 02/04/14 at 05:38
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    JV Series Japanese therefore, dated 05/14/83, it celebrates its 30th anniversary soon.
    It is a 57 reissue sunburst color.
    Especially not rely on the Squier name connoted entry level Fender.
    It is far above many U.S. I tried.
    One that is close as is the Fender '57 Precision Bass Reissue (1988) that has a friend (almond green color beautiful ...)
    I am a drummer, and I bought the bass player in my group so I love this instrument.
    He had bought together in Pigalle, a store that only fits guitars used and occasionally bass when they are exceptional ;)
    As soon as he bought it, I told him that if one day he sold it, I'm here.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel JB, a little wide for small hands.
    I had to change because unfortunately vrillait.
    I bought the same to remain faithful to the spirit, but it is stamped Fender now ;)
    mine picnic slightly nose heavy relatively low.
    I would say that the weak point is the bridge he made his taf but aesthetically it is very basic.
    Let's go, I replaced Wilkinson against a chrome brass complies with the vintage look.

    SOUNDS

    Excellent sound, bold desire to perfect for me.
    I mounted with flat fillets because I prefer the thrill of the game and the extra fat made to the sound.
    It is pleasantly close to a bass sound at times, but with Frêtes ;)
    It happened to me several times to listen to mixes that I make friends pro musicians or sound engineer.
    Often I am asked what I used to treat the sound of the bass ... what a pleasure to meet "ben nothing ..."
    Plugged directly into my Profire 2626 and go.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Exceptional instrument, I never would sell the

    Manufacturing Japanese Fuji-gen plant on it is entered into after 2/29/1984 round, leap year I checked. Fiesta red color, race and maple fingerboard, bridge Fender Vintage pickups RI'57 U.S. SQP type-2 (with The Floating pads). I tested very good microphones on it (Lindy Fralin, Seymour Antiquity) but what are its origins microphones that I found most suitable.
    Otherwise, an exact copy of the 1957 Accuracy aside polyurethane varnish instead of nitro.


    UTILIZATION

    The neck is quite slim, it is far from certain "logs" in the 70s, 21.5/41.5mm at nut, 24/56.5mm at 12th fret. Weight 3.8 kg, you can play for hours without problème.20 frets, and access to acute, it's enough I'm not a gu…

    SOUNDS

    Level sound is really top-flight BP, easily comparable to a current U.S. RI'57 anyway it is the Japanese who have learned how to make Fender réissues.J have also a Am Std 2008, the latter sounds more "modern" and its Japanese cousin has nothing to envy. So by setting the tone that goes "dark / heavy" the chattering depends also used ropes course. Suitable styles 50'60 'in which I play (rock and roll, surf, blues ...)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Low indestructible, which makes its Precision taf, and Fiesta Red one does not spend inaperçu.J 'had already had a JB in the same series 86 that I unfortunately sold qqs years later. This I keep it no matter what.

    The "machine funk"

    Squier Precision Bass (Made in Japan)Published on 09/27/10 at 02:43

    SOUNDS

    The sound? Tested with large flat yarn drawing, it is the "Funk Machine" by James Jamerson neither more nor less. But I prefer the round wound strings, cast the rock'n'roll change their spots ... So its a very good typical PB key rosewood, I will not mention all the bass players who have used it and thousands of recordings made with this instrument. His best friend is obviously the Ampeg SVT, but plugged into my B100R or better in my Fender Studiobass is also nickel.

    OVERALL OPINION

    PB Rosewood I had before it a Tokai that sounded very good but a bit below the Squier anyway. I found it at 650 € an ad on the net, reasonable price when I see speculation built around a series JV. So keep playing and without moderation, I do (try) to music, not commerce.
