The official blurbe:

The Squier Mike Dirnt Precision Bass is the latest signature model from the Green Day Bassist. The Guitar is based around a Precision Bass and is designed to cut through the mix and deliver his trademark tone in an affordable and eye catching bass

Here is what Squier say about the Mike Dirnt P-Bass
Dude, seriously, every day is a Green Day when you suit up with the Mike Dirnt Precision Bass®. It’s a way-cool take on an early ’50s Precision Bass, designed to the oft-airborne Green Day bassist’s own specifications, with a huge, gnarly punk-pop sound that effortlessly punches right through the thickest guitar attack. This new version sports some subtle aesthetic changes. The special star graphic has moved to the neck plate and Mike chose some new pickguards to adorn his bass.

Iskander4000 says:

For some reason the Starcaster review isn’t available to watch in the US. Also, great video as always 🙂

Misfitstrio182 says:

Nice review as usual sticks! I’ve had this (fender version), fender hoppus and numerous other fenders over the years but I played a ray34 and I’ve never looked back.

Kukuh Prayuda says:

yup indonesian made again

splitterpoint says:

Great quality video sir.
Do you know if Fender sells those 3ply ’51-style pickguards on their own?

I’ve a Fender model of this mike dirnt series, and it has a 1ply version which is starting to warp :I

Donald Trump says:

This or the 70’s Classic Vibe?

Haribo Snow says:

You should review the Washburn T24 Taurus, bass looks cool and quite affordable.

Fletcher's World says:

would you consider it a giggable bass? Does the lack of a belly scoop become annoying?I’m thinking of using it for my pop/punk alt/rock band as it’s very close to how I’d have a bass made if I had the money. I’d probably change the p’ups out eventually to some dimarzio split P’s or duncan quarter pounders.

Samarth Bhatt says:

the star graphic is missing

Firelite says:

Harry Pearce says:

Alex Lai says:

Hey Stick!
Just wondering, do you not work with Lee or Chappers anymore?

Nguyễn Thanh Hưng says:

squier or squire

ziggy bass says:

42 mm because it’s a P Bass Paul. C’mon you know that! 38mm for the Jazz and around 40 for the PJ type which I hate cos I am 1, Old School and (Old) and 2, I have man sized fingers ladies so 42mm + is ok!
Been a bassist 58 years Oct 2015 so any old Dusty Hill PO bass laying around shoot it over here right?

Lobster Bass says:

So Stick Sir, just wondering what is the price before you say that it isn’t the *affordable* price?  it’s different for everybody I know, but in your opinion where does that price get too high. 🙂
