SOLD - Squier VM Precision 5 String - heavily upgraded - £300

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

NOW SOLD - Putting my Fender Squier Vintage Modified 5 String up for sale - I bought it from here a few years ago, these are cracking Indonesian-made instruments and I have further heavily upgraded it with the following:

  • US Standard Precision pickup
  • Hipshot A style FM3 bridge
  • Hipshot Ultralite tuners to cure the slight neck dive it had
  • Upgraded CTS pots, switchcraft jack, wiring and Orange Drop cap
  • US Standard Precision knobs
  • Schaller strap lock buttons
  • Most importantly the 'Squier' headstock decal and neck plate haven't been replaced! ;)

Over £350 of upgrades in total, and it sounds and plays brilliantly with that classic punchy P Bass tone and a great sounding and articulate B string. I've just come to the conclusion that I'm not a Fender guy and my Warwick is getting all the love sadly.

String spacing at the nut moves from 11mm (B to E centres) to 9.5mm (D to G centres) with a 47mm wide nut. String spacing at the bridge is 18mm by default but each saddle can be adjusted to widen or narrow the spacing by up to 1.5mm.

Weight is a very light 8.6 lbs.

I've had a good look all over for dings and there are two small marks on the bottom of the back by the waist; as well as two small scratches - one on the upper face of the top horn and one on the bottom face of the lower horn, these haven't gone through the black though and you have to be in just the right light and be really looking to notice them (the bottom one I couldn't get to show up in a photo)

Comes with a Warwick gigbag that has the odd battle scar but does a great job of keeping what's inside safe. I'll also include all the original Squier parts so if you really want to you can return it to stock and make a profit selling on the upgraded parts!

Looking for £300 collected, or I'm happy to meet up somewhere close to Dartford in Kent, or ship at the buyers expense/risk - I've never shipped a bass before so have no idea what it costs, but can get some quotes if necessary. Not looking for any trades thanks unless you have a bolt-on 5 string Warwick Streamer (not the flat Rockbass models).
