Squier's Classic Vibe Precision Bass® '50s delivers an authentic '50s-era bass experience in sound, look and feel. The basswood body has an eye-catching Lake Placid Blue finish, and its custom "original" single-coil pickup delivers warm, earthy old-school Precision Bass tone. The gloss-maple neck has wider (1.65") string spacing, a 20-fret fingerboard with a modern 9.5" radius and open-gear tuning machines. The four-saddle "HiMass" bridge makes the instrument easily user-friendly for setup and playability.

I owned a CLASSIC VIBE PRECISION BASS® '50S since 2010. It´s one of my favorite bass guitars! For the good and old rock and roll, it is the perfect instrument! It has a nice Precision sound and the woods are great. I am just not satisfied with the hardware, which got rusty points on the bridge. Also, the tuners and the knobs lost their shine after few months of usage. The good part of it is that he looks even more vintage.

I have this bass and I love it. I like to weigh in when I am standing, I also like the finish. The tuning keys are very specific. The sound fits my tastes very nicely.
I've done modifications by adding another pickup in the bridge position, you can see by typing at youtube "Fender Squier Vibe 50s Bass Modifications" and it is now more flexible.
I have done a lot of gigs with this bass
