    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    So I agree with some other reservations I've read about this bass -- it is a bit of a nose diver, and I find bass boost superfluous, and if your battery dies, your pickups are dead too. But it plays great, it looks great (I got the sunburst), it's fun, and the craftsmanship for the price is really jaw-dropping. My pickguard has one screw in it that wasn't driven in completely straight, but otherwise the bass is pretty flawless. Mine came set up well, with the intonation right on. I raised the bridge saddles because I prefer higher action, but that's a matter of taste. If you want to try your hand at a 5-string without spending a lot of money, this bass is perfect. And I can't say for sure, but I think that even if you become proficient, you'll still find it more than adequate.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    Really dig the sound, have used it for recording and it has been fun the work with! Have had many basses over the years and I don't think I'll get tired of this one. Great for beginners and intermediate players. Also looks really cool!!! My go to is a Thunderbird so I'm used to the heavier weight but it definitely doesn't kill your shoulder after playing for 3+ hours. Never owned a squire before and I am pretty happy with my Purchase

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    I really love this bass. It has great flexibility in tone and fantastic craftsmanship on nearly all counts.

    It's one flaw for me was the G string is sitting too close to the edge of the fretboard on the nut end. It needs to be a hair in so you don't accidentally pull the string off the fretboard. However - it's an easy fix. Just get a new nut for under $15 usd. Problem for me is solved. The GC guy adjusted the action. It came a bit high for my tastes but it adjusted down quite well with no issues.

    It is hard to believe how much quality and value they pack into this bass for the price. Extremely satisfied. Highly recommend.

    Great bass

    By Jeremy

    from SC

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    I like this bass. It sounds very metallic on the b string but the bass boost removed all of that sound. The string spacing is wide but it's not terrible. It has some neck dive but I fix that by using a wider strap and wearing it a bit higher.

    terrific value

    By WARD

    from Seattle, WA

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    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

    By GLENN

    from Arvada, CO

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    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

    By Kyle Paape

    from Alsip Illinois

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special:

    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.
