I'm disappointed by the finish.
1 - There is a big knot on the body. It looks like a big knob on top of the instrument. It looks awful.
2 - There was too much varnish under the 2nd fret and I had to polish it. I find such faults are not acceptable.
3 - The back of the neck has ditches and it looks like corrugated iron. The difference is almost 1mm deep!! I had never seen this before, even with very cheap bass guitars.

There are a lot of small other faults: the pickups seem to be too wide compared to the space between the strings, the binding is not varnished everywhere, the 1/4" connector is not tight, etc.


Once I set the instrument, the ergonomics are perfect and the sound is really good. But the faults on the neck are a pity!


Good sound for funk. I don't use my effect pedals anymore: they are not required. I plug it directly into the amp with flat EQ settings and the sound is nice. I didn't change the strings.


Compared with another Jazz bass copy (an old Session), the Squier VM sounds better and I don't regret having bought it. Maybe I was unlucky and got a faulty one. It's a pity and I cannot forgive this. My next instrument won't be a Squier but a Fender.
