Should I Do It?

So you guys are killing me with all the pro audio star threads! I really do not need (or want if I’m honest with myself) another fender type six string. But maybe I could use a new bass. I rarely ever play, and when I do I use a Squier standard. But this CV looks really nice. I think I could sell the Standard for close to what the CV will cost me. Is it worth it? Is the CV that much better than the standard? What should I do!?!

The bass you have looks to be more versatile with the P/J pickups vs only the P pickup on the CV 70s.
Rosewood is my personal preference over Maple, the black block inlays look nice though.
I wonder if the Walnut body makes much as difference in the sound?
Is that Shoreline Gold? I like Shoreline Gold...👍

North, Snow, UFO Ville!
I would rethink any purchases from PAS as they are not answering emails nor the phone. I made a purchase on Nov 26, and zero response from either their email or phone, they don't answer either way even on facebook! You can send me 200 bucks and I will at least give you a reply! LOL

I would keep the PJ pickups with Rosewood if it was me. That particular era/color of Standard P Bass is as good as anything else I've ever played in a similar price range

They also had that listed on eBay and accepted my offer for less $. I wonder if open box means they looked it over and found issues I will need to fix with the set up but for that low a price it will be fun to play with.

Glad someone here got it! Let us know how it is when you get it

For the same money you can get this... Active HB pickup, roasted maple neck and in Shoreline Gold. It was a no brainer for me. But then I don't mind the risk was PAS. My experience with them is not the same as some.

I saw that one as well, but if I recall correctly, that one was an Affinity. I figured my Standard was at least as good. So the Affinity wouldn’t be an upgrade. But I was thinking about the CV because in my mind it would be an even trade price wise for a much better guitar. In the end it was just a strong case of GAS brought on by all the wonderful people here! LOL! I’ll stick with my Standard.
