I personally dislike reviews that say instruments are good for the money, but I guess I'm going to do that here. I had to have some work done to this bass to get it in playable (for me) condition, but after that....look out! It sounds amazing for the money. I just wanted to get my toe wet with fretless, as my main bass is a 5 string fretted. I probably will only play this 20% of the time to start, but I'm really enjoying it so far. It has that sweet mwaaahh sound on the higher strings and a really nice grind on the lower 2 strings.
If you want to try a fretless, this is a great place to start.

.One of the bands I play with now does some Latin Jazz, so I thought I would jump into fretless. I didn't want to spend a lot of money since I probably would only play it 20% of the time and I have a nice G&L 5 string (fretted). I hate when people say "it's good, for the money", but I suppose that would apply here. The action was just sky-high when it came out of the box and the strings were not really good for this style of playing. The nut had to be adjusted to compensate for proper strings. So, I had to put about sixty smackers into it once I got it. Now, it plays and sounds great, which I love. I would have loved it more if I didn't have to do those things, which made it not such a great deal. I recommend it, I guess, but it may have been worth the extra cash in hind sight to spring for the Ibanez. Just be prepared to make some changes.

.This is an excellent bass for the money. It's thin neck and smooth fretboard make it an ideal bass for a guitarist. The rear pickup has a good quality tone but lacks any real output. I'd recommend upgrading it down the road and the saddles ring a bit and don't let the string sound off as good as a quality brass saddle. I will replace these down the road but in actuality, it's something I can put off. It's a nice easy to play bass.
It did require a little more setup than I thought it would. Of course, I ordered it sight unseen. The action was ungodly high and after lowering the saddles it was apparent the neck needed adjusting. It took 3 firm turns with the Allen wrench. A little aft nut filing was required to let the strings ring. It may sound like a lot but it came together in 20 minutes. The intonation was almost perfect. After adjusting, the action is incredible and all sounds and looks wonderful.

.This is what readers want to know: This Squier "Jaco" is one fine fretless. The pickups are killer, I'm serious. Nice growl when driven. Dials in that "Jaco" sound quite easily, and has a wide array of tonal possibilities. The tuners are superb, rarely out of tune. I enjoy the simplicity of this bass along with the complexities of tone I can coax from the bass and amp EQs. (fwiw, I've paired it with an Acoustic 300W 1x15; great match!)

.No, it isn't a 63 Jaco bass, but for a fretless in that style, the price can;r be beat! It handles a solid fretless sound, feels comfortable, and works as intended. I use fretless maybe 20% of the time and this is an easy set up, holds tune, and gives yo9u what you need....it's a Fender afterall!

.Squire has been making good stuff these days! This is a GREAT Bass! The fretless tone is off the chain. You will not be sorry. I had to set mine up but even with a pro set up you come out cheaper than the Jaco version. Went to a jam session and blew them away. I may buy another one. You can buy two of these, a combo amp, case, guitar strap and still come out of the pocket way less than the jaco version. Check it out on youtube. Well worth the money!

.Right out of the box you're going to want to: A. immediately rip the round wound strings it comes with and replace them with flat wounds and B: give it a proper setup and adjust the action, adjust pickup heights, and set the intonantion.

After that's done it's a pretty nice instrument...plays smooth, sounds great, and can thump. The fret lines make it a great "First Fretless" for someone just starting the transition to fretless bass.

I picked it up because of the reduced price (can't pass a bargain) to add to my recording arsenal. The only fretless I had was an electric upright and had been wanting to add a fretless bass guitar to my options. After playing it for a while it's become the go to 4-stringer when I decide to play anything...jamming, work, or pleasure.

Well worth the Reduced and Full Price.

.Ordered this bass several years ago. Came setup very poorly. Way to much neck relief, impossily high action, etc. Took weeks to get it set up with low enough action to be playable while still being able to play above the twelfth "fret". The grain matching was extremely poor. The body of mine looks to be at least 3 pieces, with the center piece having a noticably darker and different grain than the wings. Really looks terrible.

I am a guitar player primarily, but I had been interested in learning the fretless bass, having listened to session players such as Tony Levin and Tony Franklin. This quality instrument is everything I could want in an entry-level instrument. The fret markers are a huge help to those of us not experienced in the fretless world.

.I like this bass very much. Truthfully Ive been playing only this bass since I got it. I wanted fretless in my stash so I decided to get this one and do few mods on it and still be below price range of a MIM bass. So I got new electronics, original fender american jazz bass pups, and next will be a bridge but that can wait, but in all it will still be under 599 that they want for Mim bass. Actuall I dont even know if they offer them. Stock pups are just not there in sound quality for me even after eq set up just for this bass it still lacks harmonics of the low end and they are very trebly
Anyhow I recommend this guitar to anyone, as it is cheap enough that you can make it your own and still be good on the wallet.
