  • terrific value

    As reviewed by WARD on 6/23/2014

    Though bass guitar is not my main instrument, I decided to get a real bass because I was unhappy with the "virtual" basses I was using in recordings. Nothin' like the real thing, folks: in spite of my limitations as a bass player, it sounds much better already than stuff I played on a keyboard. So: why, specifically, this bass? 1) I wanted a Fender-branded instrument, and Squier is pretty much a Fender; 2) I really like the Jaguar-style body; 3) The innovative combination of Jazz- and Precision-style pickups does, indeed, give a wide variety of tones; and 4) the 5-string model gives me a low C and D-flat, two of my favorite keys. I got a no-charge setup at the Guitar Center where I bought the bass (intonation, string height, all good) and the tech showed me a lot of things about basses I didn't know. His comments convinced me that, in spite of the low price, this is a quality instrument; certainly anyone like me, a non-gigging semi-pro looking for something to record with, will be very satisfied. And even you professionals: note that the closest runner-up I found in the Fender stable was about six hundred bucks. If I were you I'd carefully consider how I might spend that extra $350 I'd saved: new amp head? Effects box? Your choice, folks... I think this Squier Jag is an unbeatable deal. (BTW: I got the sunburst finish - absolutely gorgeous. Mmm, mmm.)

  • Luck of The Draw

    As reviewed by GLENN on 6/22/2014

    I have owned several Squier basses in the past, most recently a P-Bass V that was outstanding. Thus, I have come to expect very good quality from Squier in their Indonesian manufactured basses. Sadly, this was not the case in my recent purchase of a Jaguar Bass V Special. Murphy must have worked the day shift the day this bass was made. Everything that could go wrong, has. Pros: Nice finish, especially the satin neck. Under 10 lbs. weight. Pretty good for a fiver with a 1-7/8" nut. Nice J-Bass pickup with individual adjustable poles. Cons: Nothing was setup (although in fairness, that would be impossible, given what follows). Plus: Dead spots on the neck. P-bass pickup will not adjust to the correct height. Bridge placement and/or fretboard height has rendered the instrument unable to intonate. I am holding out hope that this is a one-off lemon. So, after only owning this for three days (and spending 5 hours trying to get it setup properly), back it goes to GC in exchange for another.

  • New Favorite Bass

    As reviewed by Kyle Paape on 10/17/2013

    Best quality bass I have played thus far. First off, the sound is amazingly clear with the ability to have a nice warm muted tone to having a nice punchy twang. Definitely has the widest range with the best clarity. Second, the is a jump in quality when compared to my other basses. My dean bass had an overly filed nut that made my strings nearly rest on the frets which led me to replace the nut with one that I made from some purple heart wood. The rogue had a bare wood neck when I received it and just needed a couple coats of wax paste but that is something that you shouldn't need to worry about. If you are looking for an upgrade or a first that wont require an upgrade, I highly recommend this bass.
