I've been wanting a bass for a while to replace my ancient Hofner Beatle bass copy. (My dad says he found it in a pawn shop in 1969, he's not sure how old it really is)<br /> <br /> Anyway, I really like the look of the amber '77, so I scooped one up from Sweetwater. At $349, it should be more than enough to noodle on for a non-bass player like myself.<br /> <br /> Reviews to follow!

Man, wow! I am!<br /> <br /> Best $349 I ever spent!<br /> <br /> This thing is really alive, the pickups sound great, and it really sings. It's hard to explain, but it really has some complex overtones and resonation going on.<br /> <br /> Craftsmanship is top-notch, and everything was perfectly set up from Sweetwater.<br /> <br /> Really pleased, and highly recommended!

I've been very happy with all my modern Squiers in the higher end of their lineup (all I buy).<br /> <br /> Works as advertised, and honestly inexpensive like I'd expect bolt-on guitars to be.

Glad to hear this worked out so well!<br /> <br /> Like Rob, itâs been my experience with the upper end of the Squier line. I prefer those to the MIM Fenders offered.
