Squire Jazzmaster

By jack McConnaughy

from New York

Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

Where to start? The finish is an amazing satin finish on the neck where you can move up and down on it so easily. The pickups are so great, you can get a tele sound with the bridge and a true jazzmaster pickup sound when you go to the neck. The tremelo fits right in when you get it.The anodized pickguard looks really good with the aged white on the body. It is heavy, but thats not an issue. This guitar can play everything!

ATTENTION: VERY IMPORTANT !

By brian macfarlane

Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

After seeing the jazzmaster model back in '91 I knew I had to have one.but the price made it unattainable .UNTIL NOW! after review and research on other masters,this one is the best as far as getting vintage master features along with the mods to make it the best deal without dropping a grand or two for vintage .the jumbo frets are like butter on the board.the pickups are decent especially since the options are multiplied with separate volume and tone knobs and switches that even though people complain that they are mysterious and unwanted I love the variety.mr. mascis made sure to leave no stoned unturned when designing this gitter.color and finish even had the eyeballs of the GC guys glazed over in awe when unpacking this beautiful piece.im a fan of old dino jr. stuff so the signature on the back of the head stock is ....well ...irrelevant.THIS IS A STEAL !ive played it everyday and haveHAD IT FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS !even called in sick for work twice and played it all day .

Looks, tone and incredible value!

By Patrick Fitzgerald _ _ _ _

from Paradise, CA

Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

I must admit I was a bit leery about buying a Chinese made guitar sight unseen, but I took a shot because of GC's excellent return policy, and I'm glad I did. First off, this thing looks like an aged but flawless 70's era guitar that's been sitting in a closet for forty years. It's that gorgeous! The neck stain and finish are as nice as any I've ever seen, and the overall fit and finish are first rate. Second, it plays like a dream, with great balance and easy access to the entire neck. Plus it's not too heavy, which is an issue with some Jazzmasters/Jaguars. Finally, it produces a distinct range of tones that work well for nearly any style of music. All in all a great guitar, especially at this price point. You will need to swap out the cheap strings and adjust the action when you first get it, but that's the case for nearly all new guitars. Yet another home run for the Squier/Fender line.

Seriously...It CAN'T be this good. Can it?

By Philip L

from Knoxville TN

Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

Last night I played a gig with this thing that encompassed country, rock, surf, & jazz. (a sampling of each would be Haggard, Me, Webb Wilder, Scofield) These were ALL a breeze with this instrument. I did the following modifications to the instrument: Um.. Quarter turn tightening of the truss rod, raised the "skinny" E string a quarter turn and put some teflon tape around the bottom of the vibrato bar so it doesn't "clank". The fit and finish of this instrument is STUNNING for the money. I'm actually a little upset that I own instruments, that cost WELL over 3 times what this one did, that aren't as well made. From everything I'm reading on the the internet, I didn't just get lucky and find "a good one". Apparently they're all pretty much like my example. Maestro Mascis has made this a VERY useful instrument to the average working musician with his light but incredibly useful mods. The biggest thing that probably goes un-noticed is the all parts-esque tune-o-matic bridge. I actually purchased a roller bridge to replace it but, the strings don't seem to hang on the saddles at all. (When it comes to whammy bars - I'm a "gentle wobble" kinda guy. Think Jimmy Wilsey's playing on "Wicked Game".) Neck: This is where "affordable" instruments usually drive of the cliff. The "jumbo" frets are gorgeous. The edges are machined down and there are no "tangs" to torture your paws. And, with the aformentioned bridge, intonation is bulletproof from top to bottom. The Nut: This is probably the part I replace most on an instrument. This one is going to stay. Yes, it's plastic. (Delrin? Dunno.) but, the height is PERFECT. Also, within a couple hours, the strings settle and the vibrato maintains "pretty good" tuning. After a day or so, you have to work to knock it out of tune with with the tremolo. Electronics: Pickups are apparently higher output than jazz masters. Jazzmaster pickups don't have adjustable pole pieces. These behave pretty much like a good set of P-90s. There's some hum but manageable. Once the drummer starts, it goes away! Switching etc is classic jazz master. Works like it's supposed to. For this money, I might buy another as a backup. I expect these to get expensive after they quit making them.

I LOVE this guitar!!! Worth every penny!!!

By Craig

from Tallahassee, FL

Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

After much debate I decided to buy the Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster. I really wanted a Fender and I couldn't decide between a Fender standard Telecaster, a Squier vintage modified Jazzmaster or the Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster. After reading lots of articles, reviews and info and comparing the specs of all three guitars, I decided I liked the J. Mascis' dimension and electronics the most and took the plunge and ordered it and I am SOOOOO glad I did! The neck feels amazing, the craftsmanship is phenomenal, the pickups are amazing and it looks beautiful! Even better than in the pictures. I was a little worried I wouldn't like the gold pickguard in person, but I was just blown away by how great the guitar looks! I've only been playing Gibson guitars for the last five years or so and was a bit worried I wouldn't like it but I haven't put it down since I got it! It's a wonderful guitar at an unbeatable price! Two thumbs way, way up!!!!!

    Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    I played this guitar at my local Guitar Center and had a blast. The pickups are good, and it has a built in overdrive. the only reason that I gave this a four star and not a five star was because it's a one trick pony. The only sound that it really makes is a sort of hollow, tinny sound. That may not be a great destcription, but, imagine the sound that Slash's guitar makes when he's playing Sweet Chold O' Mine. It's a cool guitar, it's just a one trick pony.

    Fantastic at any price level

    By LeRoy George

    from Concord

    Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    The best feature of this guitar is the neck! Comfortable satin finish and shape. Playing is effortless. Just continued to play the JM when I first picked it up before I decided to actually go thru the pick-up switching options and settings. Very pleased with the tone and it's clean sounds. Body has a nice weight to it even though it is Basswood and the body shape is very comfortable to play standing as well as seated. I also own a highend Musicman Relex and a Sweet Les Paul. Haven't picked them up since the Jazzmaster came home.

    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!
