Squier MIJ Silver Series Precision Bass SPB33 Olympic White 1993
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 olympic 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; it's barely been played and feels super slick in the hands. 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!
