  • Powerful lows in a small package

    As reviewed by luke on 6/9/2011

    First off, this thing is flawless, beautiful finish, can't believe it's so nice for the price.The neck and setup are very sweet. I don't think I have to touch a thing. Where will you get a NEW bass for the price that's this awesome? its light and small , no more banging into things.

  • Very Good Bass - not just "good for the $"

    As reviewed by KIM HETRICK on 7/26/2012

    Looking for a bass, I wanted [1] good sound, [2] light weight, [3] good neck & intonation, [4] reasonable price. I got 'em all in the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass (short scale)! The instrument isn't perfect, but pretty close. It's fun to play, sounds great, and the price/value ratio is incredible! In the candy apple red, it even looks smashing! I'm going to pick up a heavier bridge and gutsier bridge pickup at Guitar Fetish dot com, but, right out of the box, this is a bass that sounds and plays like an instrument costing much more.

  • Awesome little bass!

    As reviewed by Matt Peterson on 4/2/2012

    This bass, for the price, is a wonderful little guitar. I was entertaining the idea of buying this guitar to expand my tone, but had a terrible image of Squier guitars because of the experiences a few friends had early on. After reading a lot of reviews online that praised this little bass, I decided to go play it myself. I got to the store, plugged it into a Fender bass amp, started playing and was sold. I love the look of the Jag bass, and I can't find its style anywhere else. The quality isn't the same as my Fender Jazz, but then it's SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper. One thing I noticed right away was that the tone on this bass was incredibly flexible in the store. The pickups are actually really nice and responsive while the fret board is smooth and really a pleasure to play on. One thing I did notice is that it sounded a little better through the store's Fender amp than it did through my Ampeg. It's also a very light bass compared to the other cheap basses I've toyed around with. There is some neck dive because of where the strap attaches, but it can be fixed. I have since tuned it up and replaced the pickups and it now plays better than most passive guitars I have played. Beginner or player in need of a new tone - go pick this guitar up. You won't be disappointed. I was going to buy a bass that cost much more, but after buying the bass and replacing some of the parts, I've saved myself upwards of 400 dollars!
