I bought this at my local GC after an unsuccessful hunt for an electric guitar. It was just sitting there for demo. At that point the only Jaguar Basses I knew of where actual Fender models or the Troy Sanders signature. I plugged this thing into an Ampeg 20W and wow. I used to not care for active anything in an instrument. I am a changed man. With the active features there is No. Buzz. At. All I play mostly everything but country & classical and it does the job and some. This thing puts out that rounded, versatile sound through the entire P/J pickup configuration. While the Jazz pickup puts out that sweet, articulate sound, and at the same time the Precision pickup captures that deep, throaty, guttural growl that makes a P-bass so loved. The neck is basically a Jazz neck, fits to the pocket of my hand like it was made for me(I play bottle-neck style). I can honestly say if you find the price to steep; you're either genuinely cannot afford it, or you need to loosen the choke-hold on your wallet, because I fell like I got this for a steal at retail. Only "con" is no case/gig bag. But if you getting it at your local Guitar Center, they sell those too, it's not like your buying a Fender custom shop, It's a Squier, let's be real.

In conclusion. Amazing Bass! Actually looking into the 5-string model for my low end work. Again. Wow. Just Wow.

Cheers.

Great Idea gone wrong

The first bass had flaws in the finish and the second was assembled poorly. The action on both was very high and bridge was mounted way out of center.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

    I originally bought this because I'm a guitar player that always wanted to learn bass. I played with it in our churches band for about a year and its solid. I've now started my own band, and our bass player uses my bass and its done great on recordings and everything in between. Great bass. The active pickups can be a little annoying just because you never wanna leave home with out a 9 volt, but other then that its a steal at that price.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

          I was in the market for a new bass. I did some research then went in to Hess some for myself, and to put my hands on them.... wow! The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass was it for me! I was comparing it to other guitars arrive the same budget like the sterling Sub 4, epiphone thunderbird, even the other Squier P/ J bases that are out. What shines out to me is the active preamp circuit in this one. It has a killer sound and is very versatile, you can get a ton of different tones out of it, so if you're playing jazz, or blues, or rock, or grunge, or some kind of funky something in between this bass can handle it.
          I like the retro shape of it too, in a sea of p basses and ibanez body style bases out there this one is unique. I encourage you to at least try it. I loved it so I took one home.

          Great Bass Guitar holds up well and feels very good. Must have if you are a moderate player and want to learn more about the Bass Guitar. Signal is also much stronger thanks to the 9v battery that amplifies the signal. With a beast of a sound system you can really blow the walls down!!

                This is great for someone who likes to jam out on the bass but it is also good for recording. However, you really have to mess with the knobs to get the tone you want. It can be too bright of a tone at times I found and had to use a Jazz bass instead which tells you how bright it can get. This isn't a negative, its just different. On a different recording (drums, bass, vocals only) the Jaguar was great. With the active pickup on and all the knobs turned up you get such a full sound its like a freaking jaguar is going to jump out of the amp and kill somebody! Pretty cool bass. BTW, I was playing some American standard jazz basses prior to this and the Jaguar is better in terms of playability and the fullness of sound.

                Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

                This is the first bass I have owned, and after reading a lot of reviews, I went with this one, in 3-color sunburst. Out of the box, the strings (as always) were awful, so I switched those out. The factory setup was poor; a lot of fret buzz, the pickups weren't the proper height, etc. Nothing horrible, and a couple minutes of work to set it up, it sounds better, except for a slight string buzz as the nut is off. But, for the price you can't really complain. There is a bit of a nick near the jack, but it's out of sight, so not worth the effort or hassle to exchange the bass.

                Overall, as a new bass player, this is a great sounding bass. It plays very easily and nicely, and the added bass boost really packs a punch. For the price, you cannot beat this bass.

                  Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

                  If you're looking in this price range, or anything under 500, you're done looking.

                  I had to sell my American made Fender P-Bass and wanted something to replace it that was great for rock and metal, but also extremely versatile. I wanted decent quality, not something for a beginner but not something for an expert with tons of cash either because I'm primarily a guitarist who only plays bass when I'm writing/recording for my songs.

                  I'd narrowed it down to a Squier VM PJ after a sales rep turned me on to the solid reputation of Squier for basses, and an Epiphone EB3 or Thunderbird 4. I gave this Jaguar a go at a music shop and was blown away by how immensely it made the previously mentioned models sound utterly limited and boring, especially since it's the cheapest of all.

                  The pickups and eq give me the smooth speaking voice all the way to crisp metallic crunch to a full powerful punch/thump tone for slappin - in a few ways it's actually better SOUNDING than my USA P-bass was (just not as good FEELING).

                  The key is the bass boost: It covers the exact perfect frequencies to give a full, round, warm, BOOM that fills up the room... not too puffy, airy, subsonic-y if you will, or too brittle and poppy either. And I got the same astounding results from the in-store bass amps that go for 800 and my 25 watt crate combo at home.

                  The feel is quite good and I have no complaints at all even though it's not on par with a model that costs a grand. It's still easy and very fun to play.

                  This is THE bass you should get because you won't be able to truly "step up" from it until you start spending over 600 mark.

                  I bought this about six months ago. The neck was pretty bowed up initially, but then I messed with the action and truss rod a bit which made it all the more easy to play. The pickups don't give as satisfying of a sound as other basses I own, but if you have a low budget and want a solid, playable instrument for practice/ jamming purposes.
