don't see why not, 100 bucks is next to nothing isn't it?

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/bass_guitars/squier/p-bass/index.html <- there's the reviews on it anyway.

and pictures would be nice, and as far as i was aware, "squier" was never on the neck plate??? isn't it on the headstock...

Some do some don't real question is are these higher quility than the ones made in say indonesia

probably a little better quality, but not by massive amounts.

best bet is to go in, play it, and then see what you think about it.

It's probably a munted old affinity. Might be alright. Might be shit. Play it? $100 sounds about right anyway.

I believe anything that's Affinity and above has Squier on the neck plate. My Affinity Strat has the Squier logo on the neck plate.


It's prolly a Bullet bass, which is not worth $100 sadly.

regardless it's a pawn shop they say $100 you say $80 see what happens, squier p bass is fine, and Guitarfetish supplies all the modding parts you'll need over time for cheap

Why bother with buying a used bass that may have any sort of issues when for $100 more you can buy a brand new Squier Affinity Series P Bass at Guitar Center
