: I'm looking to sell my bass. It is a fender squire 5 string. It is not in the style of a p-bass rather, it is its own animal. I took it over from my brother so I don't know how much it cost origionally.Its set up with a single coil and a humbucker. it also has a rosewood neck. I also belive it was made overseas. Has anybody seen this bass? if so, do you know how much it might be worth? I have a picture of it, but I can't seem to be able to paste it on this format.
: Any info would help.
From your description you probably have a Squire SQ MB-5 5-String Bass. Musician's Friend sells them brand new for $199.
It could also be the Squire Standard P-BassŪ Special 5 5-String Bass, but this model have J/J pickups and not P/J. This model sell for $269 new.
See link for more info http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/sid=020201190602024165021127674270/search/g=home?c=3888&b=986&sb=0
If you go to eBay, the going price for used bass, especially imports is usually about 1/2 of the new price.
Hope this help, God bless,
