It's already pretty loud.

I'm not sure I'm zoned for that.

 

Although if that's a Squier thing, I might pass.

I like that it looks so basic, and sounds so sweet.

It's easier to get into the henhouse that way.

 

Thanks all.

 

Peace,

I do like it. ;)

 

Perhaps it'll be attending the Second Annual?
Perhaps it shall.

Judging from last year, your neighbors could even handle the gaffer's-tape-on-the-headstock-related-volume.

So I've got that going for me, too. :D

Another update:

It's still awesome, don't worry.

 

Recently removed the neck, and the penciled date is from '84, despite having what appears to be a JV series neck. Doing some more research, this bass appears to be a transitional model made in the switch from the SQ series to the E series.

It seems to have parts from each Japan Squier era.

 

Essentially. it's a mutt. :D

I still have not seen another SQ Jazz bass.

And I have been looking.

 

I almost think some employee put it together for himself.

 

Recently put DR LoRiders on it, and it's pure Marcus. Joy.

 

 

Just keeping y'all informed.

 

Peace,

Hey Wraub, Buying and selling Fenders, as you probably know by now, is my "Retirement Business" . The Squier's of this era are very difficult to research. Looks as though you have done your homework. They do carry the reputation as being very good instruments. Some of the prices on Ebay show this. I have only had 2 of these guitars and both were very nice and similar to the Fender Japan Vintage series of today. I think you have a prize, enjoy it.

I have a mid 80's MIJ P-bass that's really beat up but it sounds and plays great! I believe mine is an E series as the serial number begins with an E, but it's not a Squier. The Headstock says Fender Precision. The body is smaller than a normal P-bass (like a P-bass lyte) and has no pick guard. I can't find any info on this bass other than it was manufactured somewhere between '84 and '87. Just out of curiosity, does anyone have any info for this bass?

groover, my MIJ starts with a G and was made in '87. I'm guessing yours is an '85.

Groover, I believe the fat one is correct.

The E series was right after the SQ series, and the SQ series ended in late '84 by most accounts.

 

Rocky, it is indeed a prize. The other night, I A/Bed it against my neighbor's '68 Jazz. Only unplugged, but the Squire had more resonance, a better feeling neck, and tons more vibe. Really.

 

Have I mentioned I am pleased?

 

Peace,

You cannot enjoy something unless you blow a big wad of cash! It is true, just ask your local retailer. :)

I suppose you are right.

I really should get rid of this thing.

 

I know a place nearby selling a brown '72 P bass.

Only $3000.

 

I should call them.

 

Peace,

p.s. And I was gonna post some sound samples. :D

Unfortunately people are starting to get hip to the MIJ's. Three years ago they were going for 300-400. Now they're fetching 600 and up.
