Pretty cool. 8) Thanks for posting this. I love my Squiers, especially my Vintage Modified Precision PJ Bass. I don't remember if I have ever played on a Precision Bass Special in a shop, but I do remember them being around for years. I thought that one with the black finish and mirrored pickguard was especially cool.

PaulLF,

Probably the biggest difference between your VM and an old Special is the neck. The special has a Jazz profile and nut width, as where your VM is standard P profile and width. Otherwise they are both pretty darn good basses.

Yeah, I saw that with that they have a Jazz neck on them, instead. I probably could swap out the neck on my Jazz on the Precision and it would be a similar instrument. I wonder why they decided to even drop the line after making them for so many years? Maybe they were trying to concentrate on having the vintage style designs?

I just made some updates to the specification page. Mainly prices for all years and years for available finishes. I'll be updating other pages soon as well. Keep checking back!

Very cool. 8) That looks pretty good. The funny thing is I don't even have a Squier Precision anymore. I sold it about a year ago, and got an Ibanez Talman short scale bass. I was also playing on a hollow body violin bass, and got used to the short scale on that thing, and the Precision made it kind of awkward to go back and forth on at the time. There was a big difference between the two necks, and spacing, that's for sure.
