Yikes that is mouthful of a fast food order. Yeah, I'll take a Squier Deluxe make that a Jazz Bass Active V. Anyway, besides a big name, it is a ton of fun bass for little money.

My local music shop. I do not play a 5 string bass much at all but occasionally I will run into a situation where I need one, so it is good to have one around. This is a great pick! I played 3 of them around town and took home one in a black finish for $330.

It feels good that weight isn't bad at all. In my book what defines a 5 string as sing or swim is if the low B is anywhere near the volume of the other strings.

That is where the electronics shine here. With the bass boosted a smidge there are no problems hearing that thunderous low B string.

Once again I can't complain at the price tag. The sunburst finish looked cheesy, so that is why I went with the black. With Squiers and well most cheaper instrument quality will vary. If you can play a few of the same model.

Balanced. The black finish appealed to me more than the sunburst. The neck is a light satin finish. The fretwork was smooth.

A great 5 string bass to have around if a 5-string isn't your main poison. The EQ allows you to dial in some fantastic tones. The switch is referred to as 'the slap switch' basically it will click on a preset of a scooped mid setting.
