Sound — 7
My style of music is Indie/Rock. This bass goes well with that syle and can also play some funky stuff to. At the moment I am Using a Marshall Bass 12 Amp. The bass has quite a Rich and Full sound and is very versitile because I believe it can play all sorts of music on it. The bass is ok for slap bass and has a clear sound. (no hissing or scratchiness).
Overall Impression — 7
The guitar is great for a cheap starter guitar and has a similar sound to the P-Bass. I probably wouldn't get this bass again if it was to be stolen. Not because it's bad but just because I would want to upgrade to something Fender. You wont go wrong with a Bronco Bass.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Reliability & Durability When I purchased the bronco the action was perfect and still is after 6 months. There have been no chips on it although it has had a few bumps. The finish doesn't come off easily and I can honestly say squiers products are long lasting.
Action, Fit & Finish — 7
The action on the bass was set up well and I haven't had to lower of higher it. There were no loose guitar parts at all when I bought it and it is a good quality wood. The only problem with the bass is the pickup. Although the bass gives out a great sound it could be a lot better if it was to have better pickups. The guitar only has 1 pickup up and no pickup knobs.

The Bronco Bass is a great starter bass guitar and is a Squier version of the Fender P-Bass. The guitar was a reasonable price of 160 and they threw in a guitar stand with it. The one thing I love about the bronco is the neck. The neck is smooth and you can play very fast on it because it is short scale. The bronco has 20 frets and has a nice red finish. This guitar sounds very much like the Fender P-Bass.
