Bass guitarist extraordinaire Ed Friedland reviews 3 of the Squier Classic Vibe bass models, comparing them to the original Fender models. Squier products are made by Fender, the world's #1 maker of electric guitars and basses, and the Classic Vibe Series is meant to capture the sound of features of some of the classic Fender bass models, at a price that is affordable to everyone.
As you'll see from the video, the Squier basses perform incredibly well, even when tested against the original models whose features they are meant to replicate. Ed states that he was "Happily surprised at how close the Classic Vibe Series Basses come to nailing the sound, look and feel of the original Fenders that they were modeled after."
Kudos to Fender for coming up with such a great line of affordable, high-quality basses!
