The guitar sounded rough out of the box. The bridge was not tight and the intonation was off. I play left handed so I was planning on taking it to my guitar man anyway. He fixed the bridge with some loctite, made a new nut and set it up lefty for me. It sounds bangin' now. The Jmascis Jazzmaster sounds fat and warm and has a large sustain. The neck feels great. It is a heavy and sturdy guitar. I recorded with it and was very pleased with the results. I love this rad guitar. It's cool that J. Mascis went with a squier to make it affordable. Thanks dude.

I wrote a review before, and yes this guitar is great, but I had to return mine. Bad electronics, the neck pickup cut out and I would have to toggle the selector switch back and forth for it to cut on again. Poor electronics, which can be expected. I still loved the guitar though. It's a shame I had to return it.

    Wonderful sound. Has plenty of sound options on it. I love that I can switch from a crisp clean electric sound to a full acoustic with the flip of a switch.

        Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

        Amazing tone, playability and action. Just so you know where my opinion is coming from, I usually play Gibson guitars with humbuckers, and I prefer thin necks. I had a telecaster a few years ago with single coils that I thought sounded too thin, and the neck felt like a baseball bat. I was looking for a little more variety in my tone, and I love J Mascis, My Bloddy Valentine, etc., and the sounds they would get from their Jazzmasters. I am totally in love with this guitar. The neck is a good radius. I wouldn't call it thin, but it's super playable for me, and I'm pretty picky. I didn't like the gold pick guard and picked up a mint-colored one that looks great. I'm not sold on the bridge pickup, but I like the neck pickup a lot, and the lead tone circuit switch is amazing! It has a pretty dramatic change in tone, and I find myself using it more the more I play it. I'm really sold on these single coil pickups too. I said before I wasn't sure about the bridge pickup, but there is so much more clarity with these than with humbuckers. Single notes ring out so much brighter, and solos sound fantastic (relative to who is playing them, of course). The action on the guitar is great. I couldn't be happier, and got exactly what I was hoping for and more.

        All in all it is really a great deal for the price. It's a good rock guitar. Throw some effects and it will shine. I had to return one that was new on the box because the pickup selector had a lil trouble. But the other one that i recieved came solid. That why i'm only giving 4 stars.

          This guitar is as good an instrument as J Mascis is a musician. Great for clean tones, great with fuzz, great for rhythm or for lead, all around, this is just a great guitar. Only issue I have with it is the tuners and that's such an easy part to change there's no real reason to complain.

              Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

              I had the gorgeous Fender Japan version of this guitar from 2008 to 2012; I had sold it because I needed the cash and because I had a few other guitars in a similar tonal range. Within 2 years, seller's remorse crept up on me and I started looking into buying another one. The internet promptly informed me that Fender no longer made these and that the used up ones had skyrocketed in price. But the internet also informed me that Squier had begun producing these! I promptly got myself one and never looked back. Though I originally pined for the Fender version because of nostalgia (and because it looked awesome), the sound of the Purple One was thin and not great for all uses. The neck was gorgeous but felt overly glossy. So I was extra impressed to experience - yes - the improvement that Squier offered here in almost every aspect. The pickups have more clout and even ground great with overdrive and distortion. They are more versatile than the Fender version in the clean channel as well. The neck has the same great shape and width, but is much more a player's guitar with its fast satin finish. The body finish is classy. As others have said, this is better in person than photos often show. The electronics may not be quite as good - the main toggle is a tad noisy. Otherwise, what a fantastic value. I have other faves in my collection, but I am always coming back to this one. And yes, kudos to J.for bringing this one to the masses, in both iterations. The Fender version was my first offset, and having that all important bridge mod done the right way ahead of time is more than the icing on the cake. I have had a couple of "real" offsets since then, and I am thinking if the first offset I ever tried had a vintage bridge, I'd probably never bother with one again! This is the Jazzmaster done right.

                I lead worship at church and I have been struggling to find an electric guitar that I can love. I've tried some fender telecasters and some strats, but once I picked this one up I fell in love. I have so much control over the tone just through the guitar. I've played this through multiple amps, and it always sounds great. I also really love this neck. It's a little thick, but that's my personal preference. I also really like the weight of this guitar. It's perfect. This really is a players guitar.

                Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

                This was my very first Jazzmaster. I've had this guitar for about four years now, and I've gotten a handful of (real) Jazzmasters since then. The over all vibe of this guitar is excellent. The gold pickguard really looks neat with the cream body. The electronics are pretty poor, and the pickups are straight up P-90's that sound absolutely nothing like Jazzmaster pickups. This isn't a bad thing, though. I just prefer a true Jazzmaster sound, so I've since replaced the pickups with Seymour Duncan Antiquity i's, replaced the pots with 250k Fender pots, and replaced the 3-way toggle switch, as it was giving out on me. Unfortunately, I also had to replace the pickguard due to a "mishap" a couple years ago that caused the input jack to be bent beyond repair. But that was my fault, and was an easy fix! This guitar has been my safe place for any gig or recording situation in the past four years. Since I've owned it, I've taken it all over the country with me on various tours with various groups. This is honestly a guitar that I know I can always count on it. The neck feels absolutely perfect and the huge frets just make me feel right at home. I should mention that the vibrato functions flawlessly and the Tune-O-Matic style bridge solves just about every problem that the original Jazzmaster bridges create! This guitar has taken quite a bit of abuse, but has never failed me completely. It never asks too much from me, even when I'm having to piece it back together mid-show due to some silly tomfoolery of mine. Buy one and love it!! Take it everywhere and don't be ashamed that such a great instrument says "Squier" on the headstock!

                I've been playing guitar for a solid 3-4 years and after a quick boost of cash, I decided it was about time for me to finally upgrade from my starter guitar. Coincidentally, the day I picked this bad boy up from GC, I ended up jamming with a bassist fried for a couple hours and playing this baby was fantastic. The satin neck is so unique and plays like a dream. Even if you're thinking you don't like this guitar, if you see it you NEED to try it out.

                An added plus was the fact that it was hanging in my local GC for long enough that it was on clearance for $100 off.

                All the Jazzmaster You Need!

                By Artie Fisk

                from New Paltz, NY

                About Me Experienced

                Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

                All the five-star reviews are justified! This is all the Jazzmaster I will ever need. The fit and finish are impeccable, the pickups sound great, the trem works perfectly while staying in tune, and the neck is incredibly comfortable. There aren't any other guitars out there that can offer this much for the price.

                The only thing I don't love about this guitar is the very dark secondary circuit. It's so dark, even with the tone control and volume on 10, that I find it hard to use it. There's an easy mod to fix that, so that's next on my agenda.

                I replaced the bridge with a tune-o-matic style roller bridge right away, and it makes the trem bar action even smoother and springier. Set-up was great right out of the box, but I like heavier strings on guitars like this, so I took off the 10s it came with, put on 11s with a wound G, tweaked the truss rod perhaps 1/8 turn, and she was ready to rock.

                All-around, the best value I can think of. Not just "great for the money," though. If this guitar said "Fender" instead of "Squier" on the headstock, you wouldn't hesitate to spend three times this much or more for this guitar. It sounds so good through my '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb that my wife actually came in to listen to me practicing the other day, and that *never* happens.

                Yes, the pickups aren't exactly "Jazzmaster" pickups. They sound, to my ears, like a cross between the typical Jazzmaster PU and the sparklier end of the P-90 spectrum, like maybe the Reverend P90 pickup.
