Fender Squier Bronco Bass BK

Electric Bass The Fender Squier Bronco Bass is reminiscent of the modest Musicmaster bass that Fender built in the 70s. Due to the short scale, this model is likewise suitable for beginners or full-time guitarists, who may also want to try out its 4 thick strings.

Of course, the short scale produces a different, less wiry, yet at the same time not as deep sound as the prevailing long scale basses. The one-piece maple neck, however, provides a solid tone, making it an interesting alternative for professionals who just want to fire up a solo without tying a knot in their fingers!

Great little bass
Jagmart, 16.06.2020
I bought this bass as a bit of a project, either to paint or add different hardware pickups etc, but it has kind of been claimed by my 13 year old daughter, to have a go at learning the bass. The neck is so slim it feels more like a guitar and is so light and comfortable. The single coil guitar pickup is surprisingly punchy and deep. Overall the build quality is basic but not in a bad way, it still feels well made and feels very good at this price point. This is an ideal way of getting into bass for youngsters or anyone wanting something extremely comfortable and playable. I would definitely recommend these broncos to players of any level.

A nice short scale bass
09.09.2014
Good for the price, nice to have around for the guitarist or small-handed bassist. The sound isn't wonderful because of the crappy guitar pickup in it but with something decent on it I'm sure it could be gig-worthy.

EXCELLENT Starter Bass
Ken J., 16.08.2020
If you're looking for a starter bass for a young person or someone with smaller hands, look now further.

And I have to say the sales staff at Thomann are some of the best I've ever come across.

Wahnsinn
Kris Benz, 01.02.2020
Wer sich schämt mit einer Squier rumzulaufen, sollte hier überwinden weiterzulesen. Es könnte die Einstellung ändern.

Hatte von Fender alle Preisklassen aber was hier für 175 Euros geboten wird ist beeindruckend. Mein vorheriger Studio-Shortscale war ein JMJ Signature und im Blindtest würde ich keinen Unterschied fühlen und hören. Der Bronco schwingt als gäb's kein Morgen. Einer der besten Bässe bislang war der Mike Dirnt. Mit über 4.5kg ist der aber auch nicht angenehm zu bespielen. Der Bronco hier wiegt freundliche 3.6kg.

Toller Sound (erinnert massiv an einen Preci, nur in handlich), exzellente Bespielbarkeit, Verarbeitung ausgezeichnet. Lediglich die Bundenden hätten hier und da ein paar Sekunden mehr Aufmerksamkeit gebrauchen können. Ist aber schnell gemacht oder man lässt es, denn es stört im Praxiseinsatz nicht.

Wer sich dieses Ding kauft um danach gleich Geld für neue Tuner, Pickups, Pickguards und Brücken auszugeben, der sollte sich lieber auf das musizieren konzentrieren und weniger auf das upgraden für andere. Besser spielt ihr damit auch nicht. Ihr fühlt euch nur besser.

Der Bronco benötigt an keiner Stelle ein Upgrade. Wer spielen kann oder es lernt macht hier keinen Fehler.
Gebe zu, ich habe vor dem Kauf auch nach den ein oder anderen Tipps und Mods geschaut, weil der überwiegende Teil der Kundschaft diesen Bass als perfekte Modbasis beschreibt und das in jedem Forum kundtun muss.
Aus meiner jahrelangen Erfahrung heraus muss ich sagen, das ist verschwendete Zeit und Kohle. Spielt diese Instrumente wie sie sind und wenn ihr es dann könnt, dann könnt ihr das auch auf einem 175 Euro-Teil.
Auffällig an dieser Stelle ist, das ein Bronco sehr selten im Originalzustand gebraucht zu bekommen ist. Gepimpt schon öfter. Was wieder einmal beweist, das sich die Hoffnungen der Bastler nicht erfüllt und sie nur für's Gefühl investiert haben.

Viel schlimmer finde ich die "Spezialisten", die den Ink-Schriftzug von der Kopfplatte kratzen und ein Fender Decal draufkleben. Einfach nur peinlich, sich selbst in die Tasche zu lügen. Daher bitte beim Kauf von gebrauchten Instrumenten aufpassen, dass man euch nicht eine Squier zum Preis einer Fender unterjubeln möchte.

Für alle ehrlichen Basser: Spitzending und das hatte ich nicht erwartet. Suchte fürs Recording einen Shortscale, den man auch getrost auf der Rückbank mitnehmen kann und ich habe viel mehr erhalten.

Grandios Squier! Der praktisch unbehandelte Hals spielt sich fantastisch (nahezu wie eine Gitarre) und Kiefer als Bodyholz gibt es ohnehin extrem selten bei der Mutter Fender. Ist aber sogar historisch korrekt, wenn man die ersten Fender Instrumente bedenkt (z.B. die Esquire). Einteilige Hälse gibt es bei der Konkurrenz in dieser Preisklasse so gut wie gar nicht.

Bin schwer beeindruckt und er harmoniert unfassbar gut mit Strat und ES335.

Rot ist zwar günstiger, habe ich aber nicht genommen, weil er mir zu sehr nach Spielzeug aussieht. Ist aber wie immer Geschmacksache.

Lediglich die Suche nach einem Gigbag für Shorties gestaltet sich in der Regel lästig. Gitarren-Gigbag zu kurz, Bass-Gigbag zu lang.

Tolles Ding und wenn man sich nicht schämt eine Squier neben seine Gibsons und Fenders zu parken, dann hat man viel Geld gespart für ein ernstzunehmendes Arbeitstier.
