Sometimes good to fatten up baselines with a real bass sound
One doesn't start to play bass on a high end Warwick, so this Squier is a necessary evil. Is it? Not per se. It obviously depends on what kind of music you want to play. If you are a starter or "just want to play some bass" then go for the this one. I had loads of fun with this bass and I still keep it around (after 10+ years).
This is a great, well made bass for both beginners and experienced players. The short scale is very comfortable, and it's got a great sound. I would highly recommend it!
