2017 Squier CV P Bass?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm not sure whether those models are still made. That's the 70's version.
I know the earlier models aren't made any more (the 50's / 60's versions in Fiesta Red and LPB) - these were discontinued quite some time back
They only made the Classic 70's version in Black (though I did see a white one for sale on eBay, and the seller claimed it was a rare version) with its' blocks & binding, I've always fancied one myself....
I did play one in a shop in Bristol, ages ago, and really liked it - as I've liked all the Classic Vibe basses I've owned and played

This 70's version still seems to be available in shops - though it may be that production has been discontinued, and what you see in shops and online is simply old, unsold stock
That price does seem a tad high for a 2nd hand one, given that these were retailing around £400 brand new - then again, it's still an amazing quality bass for the money
If they have stopped making them, maybe the price will creep up?

If you want a great quality P bass, and don't want to pay Fender prices, then the CV range are superb

Ive a 50s P and a 60s Jazz from the CV range - better than any Mex basses Ive played. The date on the headstock of the one on ebay is 2017 which is why I queried whether CVs were still being produced.

It may be that they are still being produced - though online searches show fewer places stocking them than there were a few months ago.
Yes, I had a 50's CV P bass and it was amazing. Only a need to thin the herd made me sell it - it really was a superb bass

Since replying to this thread, I must admit, I've been looking at the 70's CV Precision longingly.... again
They do look lovely, in black with black plate, maple neck and blocks & binding mmmm......
You have fuelled my GAS for one again Paddy! Lol ;)

I bought one back in 2015. They're still available on Squier's web site.

Paddy just saw this and thought of your thread.....
I'm still not clear as to whether these are still being made - but there are still quite a few around
This one on eBay is brand new, and the same price as the one in your link!!

Yes that is the only CV now available "new" but dont know when they would have been produced. Wonder what the serial numbers say. Still on the Squier website.

10 for sale on Ebay too!!

They were first produced in 2014. If you're after one they're cheaper at Thomann. https://www.thomann.de/gb/fender_squier_classic_vibe_70s_p_bass.htm
