As a guitarist starting to learn bass, the Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass is the perfect bass for me. It has the traditional Jazz Bass pickups. The quality of the overall guitar is amazing. The tone of the bass is incredibly nice. The hardware are all fairly nice. The con of this guitar is that it is freaking heavy and the neck is very sticky due to the lacquer on it.
