Squier MIJ Precision Bass Silver Series Vintage White 1993/4
Squier P Bass, vintage white, made in Japan 1993/4. The Silver Series heralded a return to Japanese manufacturing for Squier, and they were met with great acclaim upon arrival owing to their brilliant build quality and classic feel. This one is in crispy vintage white, which is a nice change from the much more common sunburst finish. This one is in pretty shiny shape for a 25ish year old instrument, it's looking really good. The classic-P tone is there in spade; it has a big thick growl with great clarity and warmth. The satin finish neck is a highlight; there's some crazy flame maple on show that probably should've landed on a bass worth a few extra thousand dollars. This is significantly cheaper than a lot of current offerings from Squier, and it really has a whole lot of proper MIJ-mojo that you really don't get on new offerings. Cool!
