Squier offer high-quality bass guitars which are ideal for new starters and experienced players looking for a reliable backup option. No matter what your budget is – Squier provides affordable options which just about all of us can afford without compromising on quality.
Just because you’re just starting out in the world of bass guitar – that doesn’t mean you can’t invest in a quality brand that you won’t need to replace for an incredibly long time. That’s why a Squier bass is pretty much the perfect option if you’re serious about learning the bass. 100% designed by Fender, you’re basically buying into years of experience, knowledge, and passion. With their iconic designs and smooth playability – a Squier will offer you maximum enjoyment while learning bass – ultimately this should help you stick with the instrument.
The Squier bass range carry a host of brilliant design aesthetics and features. Whether that’s the body shapes echoing Mustangs, Jaguars or the Jazz Bass or Precision Bass. You'll also get all of that high-quality hardware and construction that we've come to expect and love in these guitars.
The key differences between these two iconic models include factors such as body shape, neck width and pickups. The Precision bass is significantly different from the Jazz bass, it was introduced first back in 1951 and it opened up the world of bass to a whole new generation of players. The Jazz bass was introduced later alongside the Jaguar guitar – that’s why the offset body style makes sense. As often within the world of guitar, it ultimately comes down to personal preference. You can read more about that in our comparison blog here.
As we just mentioned – a lot of the time this can come down to personal experience. There are factors that will help you make your decision, for instance, if you’re a younger player or someone who prefers the feel of a short scale, then the Squier Bronco bass would be a much better option. If you’re looking to truly get a feel for the bass – we’d recommend heading to your nearest PMT store and speaking to one of our friendly experts.
